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

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.

Love Brad's because they have wonderful patio seating and the absolute BEST fish and chips in Pismo! The service is excellent and they bring your food in record time. Always service with a smile and the atmosphere can't be beat. Gosh, I can't stress enough about how delicious the fish is here. Enjoy!!!

Once in town my husband and I stop at this place for our first meal. I know a lot people like splash, however I personally think their chowder is pretty darn good. My husband likes their BBQ, but FYI BBQ is only open on weekend outside of their busy season (summer)

We went here whilst staying at the seacrest hotel. The fish and chips were very nice. The salad was massive! Shame the BBQ menu wasn't on. Wasn't that keen on the dessert, the cheesecake was a very small piece! Soda is re-fillable. Staff were friendly.

I hadn't eaten here in over two yrs but was surprised to find that it was still a pretty good meal for the cost. My Mom loved her meal and she's super hard to please. The senior meal prices were low so that really helps. I'm always surprised at restaurant prices around here even though I've lived here for over... More
