“Not the most popular restaurant, but just as good”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The Splash Cafe has lines out the door, around the corner and down the street, but you can
get the same food at Brad's without the wait. Clam chowder is excellent, tri tip sandwiches are so good and fish and chips are delicious. If it's a nice sunny day, the patio is a great place to enjoy lunch.

“Fish and Chips”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

Been here a few times. They do fish and chips very well IMO. Gets crowded in the summer but is always worth the wait.

“Patio BBQ dining with something for everyone”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

I had the half rack of ribs when I usually get a full rack and was very full. The ribs were meaty and tender with a great sauce. I could not believe how much meat I got. My wife got a nice salad, which is why we went here instead of Moe's next door, so she could have a salad while I had my ribs. The seating was more comfortable then Moes as well. So, terrific ribs, great large variety of entree choices in a relaxed outdoor dining

“Linguicia on a Stick”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

This place has an out foor bbq and you can get some great munchies on the run. I like their Linguicia on a stick. It is a Portuguese sausage grilled to your liking. Get lots of napkins. This is a winner.
