We had lunch at Brad's and enjoyed it. The food was good, the prices reasonable, and the location convenient. We sat on the patio, which made the experience even better. We recommend Brad's to all visitors to Pismo Beach.

Nice family-run place. Had the calamari appetizer which was the perfect size for a light meal. My daughter adores the bread clam chowder bowl made with sourdough bread. They had a good tri-tip steak with rice pilaf plate. Want to try their BBQ, but sadly,...More

The prices are pretty decent for the food you're getting. If you want clam chowder and don't want to wait at splash cafe, you can get it here. Can have a bit of a wait if you go too late. They have inside and outside...More
