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!

The line at Splash Cafe was too long so we came here. The service was ok, it seemed none of the people really wanted to be there and it showed. The food was ok, clam Chowder was good but the calamari and chips was mediocre. The calamari was strips not rings and was chewy almost as though it was over... More

Brad's has good food for their prices. When the lines at other places are too long and you want to sit down at a booth for your meal, Brad's is the place to take the family

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!

Brad's is the best. Both my wife and I loved our meals, the service was wonderful and the atmosphere is VERY family style which we appreciate even though we had no kids with us.

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.

Just a quick review to say what great uk style Cod we ate here. The fish was cooked to perfection with the lightest batter ive ever tasted. Loved the side salad coming not smothered in any dressing (such a refreshing change). Service was prompt and friendly a little un-atmospheric but we did eat here on a Tuesday night in November!

Visit here with friends, 7 of us at one table. The food and service was average and sitting inside it was quite warm, considering the outside was quite cool. Outside, they have plenty of space heaters operating. I went mostly for seafood as, after all, this was Pismo Beach and the coast. I would say that the menu, food, service... More

Just a simple review. Great food, service and location. Only avout a vlock from the beach. There is outside dining as well as inside. The tri tip sandwich is great.

This place is one of the stops that is on a visit bucket list when we come. Good clams, nice friendly Waite staff, and reasonable prices. The only issue on a busy day is finding parking, but not enough of an issue to keep us from coming here to eat.

Thank PierceChick
