Dined at Brad's on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was busy but we got a good table. We had a seafood dinner that had Lobster, Shrimp, Crab, Clams, fish, Mussels and was absolutely superb. Oh, it was only $33! Wine and beer were reasonably priced and our waitress was fantastic. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

We sat outside which was nice but tables were not very clean . Server was very nice but very busy for just 2 servers. Had to wait a little bit after being seated. Order. Clam chowder and shrimp cocktail. Both okay. We are used to great seafood in San Francisco so a little spoiled. Fish and chips was better,not greasy... More

Not the greatest food, not the worst. I ordered shrimp and it was chewy and cold. My husband had salmon and clam chowder and his meal was good. I tried the salmon, it was tender but why they make it so spicy seems strange to me. Our waitress was not very attentive so I didn't ask for much. There was... More

No fancy sauces or unique spices here. Fish and chips and Shrimp and chips were the dishes of the day for us. Nice light and crispy batter. A delicious New England Clam Chowder was a must and it delivered as expected. Creamy and balanced. Stop into Brads. A lot less busy than the place across the street.

Really good food. Ate there twice over the weekend. We usually cap the Labor Day weekend off with family dinner (25+ people every year!) with dinner at Brads.

We took a spur (ill-examined) trip to Pismo Beach, CA. You know the kind of trip that leaves you walking the streets and wondering where you should eat! Well, we opted for Brad's because of it's outdoor terrace. A little about the terrace: - The terrace was simply adorned with wrought iron chairs and tables. Nothing elaborate. - Restrooms are...

We had a big group and everyone really enjoyed our meals. The waitress was on top of everything and even helped play a prank on one of us (me, lol). We sat out on the patio and had a wonderful meal and a wonderful time. Would definetly go back!

Very nice patio on a warm summer day, but the food was only average. Ordered the appetizer sampler of onion rings, poppers, fried mozzarela sticks, and fried zucchini. Small portions of what seemed to be the same as what you can buy in the grocery store and bake yourself. Also ordered a bowl of clam chowder and a house salad.... More

Yum, I had a 1/2 skillet breakfast and a mimosa. All the food at our table looked good. No complaints.

We chose to eat at Brads during our one night stop over in Pismo. We had the ribs and chowder and both were amazing! Real 70s America vibe, I was just waiting for a waitress to call me "doll" or "hon"! This restaurant gives you a real honest flavour of what a tourist might expect from a seaside eaterie. Good...
