Spent 3 days at Pismo, and we had dinner here every day. Their breakfast meals are wonderful and you get so much. You can order anything from their full menu as well. Loved their clam chowder.

I have been eating Splash clam chowder for over 20 years and it remains my favroite of mine. They are open for breakfast with tasty breakfast items and the soup is ready to go if you want soup for breakfast which I did (who wouldn't)

Husband and I thought the Clam Chowder was too milky and NOT enough ingredients. Next time we'll try across the street

Our favorite thing to order is the Bread Bowl of Clam Chowder with Seafood Topping. You will not be disappointed! You might want a glass of wine to go with this, you can walk it off around town or on the pier. Splash has won...More
