We had fish and chips, a burger and shake, and some clam chowder soup. The restaurant was very busy both inside and out. The food was very good, but maybe a bit over-priced. We chose to eat at Splash Cafe and Cool Cat Cafe (across the street) the next time.

The food here was great -- the clam chowder - excellent! If I were to complain, it would be the young male host who greeted us - he bordered on rude BUT the waiter more than made up with it with a friendly personality and attention to detail.

Okay so the host wasn't the most personable, and you felt as if you were in bit of a time warp, but the food was worth it! Everyone raves about the clam chowder at The Splash Cafe just across the street, well I'm here to tell you, Brad's clam chowder in a bread bowl beat theirs by a long shot.... More

Having spent a week in San Diego, before stopping at Pismo Beach overnight, I can safely say this is the best meal I'd had in 8 days - great, locally caught fried shrimp. Very efficient and helpful service too

Stopped by for lunch on a trip up the California coast and visiting the Pismo Beach Pier. My wife and I both loved the food. I had a split plate of clam chowder and roast beef sandwich while my wife had a great fish sandwich. Staff was friendly and the food was great. Would return in a heart beat.

Brad's is always a great choice! Right on Pomeroy not far from the pier. Love their outside patio dining option. Very extensive menu with midrange pricing offers something for everyone. Especially like their chowder, fish and chips, as well as the tri-tip sandwich. Friendly prompt service. We've never been disappointed.

We chose takeaway as it was sunset and we preferred to eat at a picnic table near the pier and enjoy the sun. Acceptable but unremarkable Fish & Chips.

Everyone that waited on us was very nice and helpful. We had small children with us and they were very patient while they decided. I had the chili bread bowl. It was very good.

This place is right on the tourist street that leads to the pier. The place is nice and predictable and met our expectations of a good meal. We had fish and shrimp with fries and they were both good. Staff was nice and friendly and attentive. They have a nice good sized patio with heaters. The bathrooms were large, newer... More
