Called in for lunch after time on the beach and had a fantastic meal. Top quality food (we had the clam chowder and a salmon salad), quick, efficient service and very reasonable prices. Definitely worth a visit 👍

If you want to eat at Splash without standing in line, get there before 9am. All other times of the day, you'll be in line. At lunchtime, the line went out the front door and wrapped around the front to the side of the building....More

Fish and chips were also excellent, however very dirty tables/chairs. I would take to go only next time.

Had a nice lunch of clam chowder and fish and chips during our recent visit to Pismo Beach. The place was very crowded, long line to get in. Seems like it is really a very popular place.
