Great food, quick service and very reasonable prices. I've never had the fish and chips there, but I hear from my sons it is great.

The first thing we noticed, was how extremely clean the restaurant was. The bathroom was also the cleanest I have seen in awhile. We ordered tri tip sandwiches to take to the Pier and the sandwiches were filled with big tender chunks and slices of tri tip. The to go order had containers of salsa and yummy bbq sauce for... More

My daughter thought the clam chowder was wonderful! The waitress was very nice and patient while we decided. The outdoor patio is very nice. Ask to sit out there and enjoy a bowl of clam chowder! Yummy!

We ordered halibut dish and the cod fish dish. It was real long line during the holiday. Since this place is at the main street of Pismo Beach, lots of people just stopped by to get full. However, I think the dish is so-so. Nothing special and will not remember the taste. Been try this place before and probably won't... More

At Brad's the clam chowder is just as tasty as Splash's claim to fame clam chowder and with quicker service and a nicer atmosphere- like a real restaurant verses a fast-food joint. And it's just a few feet across the street- you really should try it.
