Brad’s is a classic beach diner with ambience of the 70s. Nothing fancy at all but you know it’s comfortable. The food and menu selection was very good and we chose going to Brad’s because all the other restaurants around only had one or two...More

We decided to go here after the line for Splash Cafe was wrapped around the corner. Had no problems getting a table on the patio (had heaters which were quite hot). The menu is on par of a seafood place. I had the clam chowder...More

All of the meat and fish is grilled over an open fire and in the summer is best served on the patio, the prices are quite reasonable considering it is a tourist destination.

If you like sea food, you will enjoy Brad's. It is located in downtown Pismo Beach and is a block from the ocean. The price is right and the atmosphere is what you would expect in an ocean town.

I’ve been to Brad’s several times. My preference is to visit at lunchtime and sit in the outdoor patio. I have never eaten anything other than their excellent tri-tip sandwich. A very pleasant, casual and enjoyable place to eat

I do not feel the place is good value, nor is their seafood the freshest in town. Too many flies in the café, outside might be better.
