Fab breakfast

Love the food and atmosphere here-- just wish they had a full bar available! The breakfasts are my favorite--- eggs benedict is wonderful. I only sit on the patio because the weather is so great and the patio is well secluded anyway.

This is a standard restaurant, the food and service were typical diner, but that's ok, certainly nothing to complain about. Great chowder, but fish n chips was standard fare.

It was lunch time and we were back in Pismo Beach. There are two places (across the alley from one another) that we're enjoyed over the years. This time, it was Brad's. Their Clam Chowder is fantastic! I could have eaten a few bowls but that really wouldn't help my diet. :( So, it was on to the main courses.... More

Crab Louie had old or frozen crab even though we asked before hand. Sad version of a classic that should be easy to make!!! The place is a dumb and needs a remodel, I hate to see what the kitchen looks like.

We stopped for lunch, wanted to have their famous clam chowder. It was ok, very few clams. My wife had a crab Louie. The crab was canned. Very disappointing. Service was good and prices were not too high. I had eaten breakfast there before and it was much better.

Lovely place with lots of choice on the menu. We had fish and chips with a side of bbq beans and onion rings. The onion rings were very nice and came with a lovely bbq dip but the beans were curry beans not bbq beans which I was a bit disappointed about. Very friendly service and food was of a... More

We ate at Brad's in Pismo Beach for lunch & the food & service was good but, can you please serve real ice tea & not instant iced tea? Really it was hard to swallow. It might sound like a little thing but it spoiled what otherwise would of been a very good experience.
