Great place!

A family favorite! We enjoy the patio seating. The service has always been friendly and speedy. The price is very reasonable. Something for everyone.

If you eat outside you can watch them cook the food fresh on the grill... Combine that with perfect coastal weather and you just can't beat it! The chowder is good here too ... All in all Brads is consistently delicious!

Really good breakfast. Best hash browns I have ever had, super crispy just like I ordered. Good and fast service too.

Not impressed, thick but not much flavor. We compared it to splash cafe soup and wasn't impressed with their soup either

We stopped here by chance. The restaurant was just an old fashioned family place. We had fish and chips and broiled halibut. The food was flavorful, reasonably prices and the service was great. The breading on the fish and chips was crispy and light. The halibut was grilled and done perfectly. I would certainly go back.

Tjis has turned into a favorite stop when traveling the California Coast! It was lunch time and their Clam Chowder is excellent! We went with the senior Fish (2 pieces) and chips, with a 1/2 side of French bread (I could have eaten the whole loaf!). As always, the food and service were great! Enjoy.

Staff was great! Gave us a taste of clam chowder before ordering it! We had previously tried another recommended clam chowder place but unlike others we weren't impressed with the seating, service or clam chowder wanted to try another place. I think clam chowders come down to personal preference and both clam chowders were good but preferred Brad's plus we... More

When we walked into Brad’s Restaurant, on the wall we noticed a plaque providing a TripAdvisor rating of “Excellent”. The place isn’t fancy if that is what you require, but we knew the food would be good. Both of us ordered Sautéed Combo and “yes”, it was excellent! Service was prompt and friendly. With the side dishes, it was plenty... More
