“Lived up to reviews”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Read the reviews, and as it was a cold rainy day decided to head to Pismo Beach in order to try. WOW! It was all it was said to be, We kept it simple at just The Clam Chowder and it was like No other I have tried. From what I could see the Fish & Chips looked good. Will return!

“Fantastic Clam Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

The Clam Chowder at the Splash Cafe is fantastic. If you are in Pismo Beach you must eat there. The entire menu is delicious. It is always a very long wait, but well worth it! We call in our order. We also order boxes of the frozen Clam Chowder to take home!

“Excellent no-frills fish cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

We really enjoyed this totally basic cafe, with excellent fresh fish, very reasonably priced. It's counter service from cheery staff, disposable plates/cutlery and find a table if you can. We had wonderful clam chowder, and brilliant fish and chips. Loved it!

“Excellent! The Best Clam Chowder Ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

We ate at Splash Cafe twice during our recent three day visit to Pismo Beach and both times the food was excellent. The clam chowder was probably the best we've ever had (even better then Tarantino's in San Francisco). The Salmon Sandwich was also excellent. If you come here to eat and see a long line out the door, just be patient and wait your turn! It's worth it!!!
