Think about cold. Think about fog. Think about a steaming bowl of clam chowder chock full of clams. Brad's is everything a small town restaurant can be that has a specialty. Although the menu is replete with other seafood dishes and a red oak BBQ pit almost everyone seems t come for the clam chowder, Clam chowder with an ice... More

Nice place - sat out on the patio in the evening and enjoyed the friendly staff and good food. Menu was one of those where there is something for everyone. It's a popular place on the weekends so go early or you'll be standing in line!

Just left brads for breakfast / lunch First of all the service was perfect from the host who let us into the patio a few minutes early and still served my sugar breakfast, to our server Michelle who was on the spot for everything we needed.

Brad's has been in Pismo Beach forever. The food is good, the service is good, unless it's a holiday and the crowd is huge. You will enjoy this Pismo gem.

We double dipped this location, once for dinner and the next day for breakfast. Dinner was fish tacos and clam strips with chips, simple enough, but the fish was perfectly done with generous portions and the clams were good size. We also had the clam chowder with many big chunks of clam in it. From the patio dining area you... More

Asked locals where to go and Brad's did not disappoint. Friendly service, good portions and reasonable prices. It's been here forever so it is a little dated but don't let that fool you.

We were customers of Splash cafe for years until we tried the chowder at Brad's . Thick and delicious. We are now loyal customers and come at least one a trip for lunch or dinner here. Nothing better than a bowl of chowder and some crispy fried fish!

This is a very cute little restaurant with an amazing patio setting. We enjoyed dinner outdoors in the fall. Close to hotels and shopping.
