Queued round the corner for 30 minutes for my first chowder experience and ended up wondering what all the fuss was about.
I had the chowder bread bowl which was big and full of chowder but it tasted like a big bowl of cream with lots of potatoes and a slight taste of fish (maybe that's what it's meant to be like?).

Last time we tried a different place, so we wanted to try Splash Cafe this time since it is rated so highly. Overall, I wasn't very impressed with the food or atmosphere. The place was very crowded, and we had a difficult time finding a place to sit down. We ended up getting some stools, but it was not very comfortable and the place was very crowded. We got clam chowder and chicken tacos, and they were okay but not as good as I thought it would based on the reviews. I have tried other places I like just as much, and it was a better experience because it was a lot more comfortable and quiet. I think it just depends on the type of environment you are looking for, so if you want a more relaxed and quiet place to eat this is not it.

This little restaurant is one of the big treasures of Pismo Beach. They have great chowder, seafood salad, and sandwiches. You have to try them all.

The clam chowder in a homemade sourdough breadbowl is the best ever! The price was very reasonable. This is a must try!

the the burgers and sides we had left quite a bit to be desired; very much your average fastfood burgers. Based on comments from friends who are into chowder this is a must-visit place, but otherwise you probably want to look elsewhere.
