Like my son said " amazing chowder"! Even if the line is around the building, we will stand in line to eat their clam chowder and fish n chips. Everything on the menu is terrific. Its worth the wait. Even the frozen chowder to bring home is the bomb!

The clam chowder is one of the best ones I have ever tasted. For an extra dollar you must ask for extra topping, they give you hand full of fresh crab and shrimp meat..this is a must have. Do not get discourage by the long line because it goes by fast. The key here is to order by phone (to-go) and in fifteen minutes they have your order ready no lines no hassle..just go to the side door and pick up your order...If you are in Pismo...you must try their clam chowder because it is to die for!

My best buddy and I did a mini trip to Pismo for the weekend and she had read all of the reviews about this place because she knows i love clam chowder. We waited in line, which moved very quickly and there was plenty of seating mid day because there is more seating in the back. THE CHOWDER WAS REALLY THE BEST I EVER HAD!

The Clam Chowder is excellent and a "must have" add-on topping of a generous pile of crab meat for an extra dollar puts it over-the-top fabulously delicious! Avoid the fish & chips - just plain awful.

Splash has had the Central Coast’s BEST clam chowder for many years now. The fish & chips are very good, but the fries could be better. They’re small and curly, and fit well in the basket, but something closer to a steak fry would be better with this combination. The sourdough bread, toasted, was delicious. One of the best values is the frozen clam chowder to go. There are four 16 oz. packets in a box for $17.95, a great deal. If you’re on your way home and have a cooler or ice chest, this is a great item to serve at a later date to bring back memories of your trip.
Before you rush over you must know this... Going at a 'normal' meal time, especially during peak season, will mean a wait in what could be a very, very long line. Be prepared to wait as much as 20-30 minutes to order. If Splash has more seating, either inside or some outside tables, I would have given it a 5 star rating.
Splash is now open at 8 am for breakfast..
