We visit Pismo several times each year and Brads is always one of our go to places! They always seem to be able to accommodate a large group and everyone can find something on the menu that they like!

One Of Our Favorite Pismo Stops: Brads is the ticket for the clam chowder, chicken & avocado sandwich, burger's & ahi tuna sandwich from the grill were great, Brads has the best "Tartar Sauce!" We have been coming here for years great beach stop GO Brads!

On our most recent visit to Pismo Beach we stopped in at Brad's Restaurant to try out their Clam Chowder. Made fresh every morning it is well worth the stop.
