We are clam chowder aficionados, having looked for the Holy Grail of Clam Chowder from coast to coast. Our quest is for the TRADITIONAL New England chowder which is a broth and not thick wall paper paste. Add to this that I make an award winning chowder and you see we have high standards when judging our chowder. With the... More

On our way up the 101 we had to stop for lunch at Splash. Our daughter introduced us to this place when she was in college at Cal Poly. Every time we are in the area we have to stop. We even took an order for her, to go. Be prepared to stand in line, you may or may not... More

This place is always busy! It is very popular and has delicious chowder bowls. But it is crowded and in need of repair and cleaning. Get your food to go!
