This was the best Clam Chowder I have ever tasted. I had to wait in line, but it was wonderful. The wait in line is worth every bit of your time

I have had the pleasure of going to Splash Cafe since the late 90s. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone traveling though or to the central coast. The line is always out the door. A trick is to call them and order it for pick up. You can walk right to the front and pick it up, pay and your out in less the 5 minutes. If you are still hungry after your bread bowl. You can go up to the front and get another scoop for a dollar. This is not on the menu but local knowledge. Have fun and enjoy the chowder.

The best clam chowder on the Central Coast - however if you go on the week end or over a holiday, expect to wait in long lines. We live near by, so we avoid those times.

Yes the clam chowder is world famous excellent, but the chili is a dish I just can't pass up! The chili has this creaminess to it and is has just the right heat and meat, it is yummy! I can't leave Pismo without having a bread bowl of chili or clam chowder!

Heard many good things about the slash clam chowder house. Supposedly world famous for its clam chowder. So stopped in to try it. Was very impressed with the chowder. It was very creamy! Full of clam & potatoes. Excellent on a cold wet morning or day. My only criticism was the bread bowl. Don't know it it was just a fluke but the top was some what cold. Yes cold even thought it appears to have been warmed on a grill. So this tells me the bread bowl may have been from a freezer & not as fresh as claimed.
