My friend and I were walking in the downtown area, trying to figure out which restaurant was the best choice! The reviews were mixed, so the decision was difficult. We saw Brad's, and since we are trying to eat healthy, we chose this one. I got the salmon, my friend got halibut. She doesn't like fish, but loved her halibut.... More

We were walking the Pismo Beach Pier and got hungry. The other restaurants had long lines because they were small, Brad's is a much larger restaurant a block from the pier with both indoor and outdoor dining. They were busy, but had a few tables. So glad we chose this restaurant. The clam chowder and fish and chips were both... More

We went there for lunch. My wife had a bowl of clam chowder and I had the bread bowl clam chowder, both were really good and also had a good craft beer.

This is great. Offers fish with a healthy alternative to fried fish and chips. This is a really fab restaurant with inside and outside courtyard seating. Outside is lovely really nice heated courtyard. Food is fresh and tasty. A really nice restaurant. Not cheap but not a break the bank meal either. Another really good meal.

We were hungry for lunch and the place was huge, both indoor and outdoor dining. We chose outdoor as the weather was really nice and they had umbrella table so you didn't have to sit directly in the sun. The servers were attentive and the soup in a bread bowl was delicious. Would go there again.

They have an extensive menu with many seafood items. You can dine in or al fresco on their patio. Tasty food at reasonable prices.

We arrived in Pismo Beach tired after a long day on the road, checked into our hotel and went in search of cold beer and comfort food. We found Brad’s after a quick look at Tripadvisor and weren’t let down. The Anchor Steam draught beer was good (though the glasses were plastic), and the fish and chip dinner first rate,... More

We were aiming for another establishment, however, we happily saw Brad's and it looked nice so popped in, they had room, happy day. Service was timely , quick, and friendly. We enjoyed the two egg breakfast with crispy hash browns and perfect eggs. There is a choice of toast, biscuit or English muffin. Simple food prepared well and promptly. What's... More
