Ordered the chowder with some onions and seafood and and fries with scallops. Really was great. Added the fried scallops to the chowder with some hot sauce and it was amazing. Looks like it is straight out of DDD.

Much more room than the Pismo Location. I decided to try the Clam Chowder one more time. I tried it a few yrs back and wasn't very impressed. Anyways got the bread bowl this time and that makes it much more tasty with the crunch pieces of sourdough. Yum! The chowder has a good flavor but it's just soooo thick.... More

The last time I ate at Splash Cafe was years ago in Pismo Beach. Since then they have opened new locations in San Luis Obispo. My friend was in town and she was craving Splash's famous clam chowder in a bread bowl. I don't eat seafood so I got their grilled cheese and fries.a really good choice! The sourdough bread... More

Always try to have clam chowder at the Splash Café in Pismo Beach but it can sometimes be very difficult to get a table there as seating is limited. They have plenty of seating both indoors and out at the Splash in downtown San Luis Obispo. They have a much expanded menu at this location including a lovely bakery section.... More

I wasn't expecting great food but that's what we all got at Splash Cafe. Seriously, really tasty. The spicy slaw they added to a salmon sandwich is something I've been craving ever since. My son loved the clam chowder as well. We'll be going back on our next visit for sure. Don't hesitate if in the mood for yummy, casual... More

Hubby ordered the clam chowder w/ seafood topping and garlic steamed mussels that came with garlic bread. I ordered one grilled fish taco. Thank goodness since it contained plenty of fish and it was larger than an average taco. The sweet potato with a dipping sauce was delicious. Everything was amazingly good. They even gave out free samples of lemon... More

Good fish and chips. Did not try the clam chowder and we're told that was a mistake. Looks like a local favorite.

Splash has wonderful clam chowder and the real surprise is the bakery. If you are staying in SLO and want an early morning coffee and pastry Splash is the place to visit.

My wife and I were visiting family in San Luis Obispo and we wanted a place that was pet friendly. We went for lunch on a busy Sunday and were able to find a couple of small tables to put together outside. There was a small line for ordering your food and they were busy however, once ordered the food... More

For two years in a row, I catered an annual business lunch with Splash. Heather is amazing. You tell her your budget and what you want. She promptly emails an estimate, which you can work with her to change to suit your needs. Delivery to our meeting location was prompt and professional. The food was a hit. Large delicious sandwiches,... More
