What Our Customers Are Saying...

"Clam chowder was delicious! Beef ribs were huge and tasty also, I will definitely be back to try other items!"

Howard C.
Fresno, CA

"Aaaa-mazing! We are from the SF Bay and always thought we had the best clam chowder I was wrong! The Clam Chowder Bread Bowl is incredible. Creamy and thick. My kids who typically only eat half of what they order has just cleaned the plates. The outdoor patio dinning is perfect with just the right amount of heaters no matter where you sit. It is a little pricey but worth it. The wait staff is very friendly and ready to make your meal pleasant! Watch out for your refills you only get ONE! All in all gotta hit up this joint!"

"We stopped for lunch here and was seated quickly. Clean place to eat. Great if you have a large group of people in your party. Large booths! Food was fast, tasty and fresh."

Mike B.

Fresno, CA

"We pretty much always eat here when we come to Pismo. We love the patio seating, the service is always good, and so is the food. It's nothing fancy or gourmet, but if you like a good tri-tip sandwich, a juicy bacon cheeseburger, or a bowl of fresh clam chowder at a very reasonable price, this is your place. We had a very nice server when we were there on Saturday and we had a nice little dinner, all the patrons were laughing and seemingly happy and enjoying their food. No complaints about this place!"

"Brad's had a varied menu and a good fish and chip meal. Really good outside area at the rear with gas heaters if a bit chilly. Very reasonable prices. Staff really friendly."

"Staying in Pismo Beach, we and other friends walked downtown. Found Brad's and wound up eating out on the patio. I had the shrimp cocktail and a salad, but everyone we were with thoroughly enjoyed their lunch. Will definitely go back again if in the area."

MaryAnn M.

Rancho Cucamonga, CA

"We ended up eating at Brad's twice on our weekend in Pismo. Had a great server Amanda both times. Lunch was fast and tasty. I loved the classic salads on the menu and the hubby loved the chowder bread bowl. We returned for breakfast and were not disappointed.  The tri tip omelet was huge and loaded with meat (had to take half home) the french toast was great too. Highly recommended! And the ceiling is beautiful - check it out!"

Danielle A.

"We went to Brad's today and enjoyed the experience. The service was very good. The fish tacos were excellent (and we have had them recently a couple of other times and they too were very good). Brad's were the best of all. My fish and chips were very good"

“The chowder and Tri Tip sandwich is a must have! So good and the best meal I had in the central coast. We sat outside and the service was great! I will be back for sure.”

Melissa P.

Astoria, NY

"Really enjoyed their clam chowder and also their shrimp cocktails. Their menu is affordable and the portions they give are not cheap. The service was really good and they have indoor and patio dining. We went during lunch hour which was pretty busy but only had to wait 10 minutes for a patio seat. Also it's a under a minute walk from the beach.


For Parents with kids : highly recommended because it's a win-win. They have a good variety of selections from their kids menu and the portions are big as well. Also if you sit in the patio there is enough room at their tables that you don't feel cramped in with the kids. And again it's a minute away from the beach."

Neil K.

"AMAZING!!! I love the patio area outside that you can eat at. The food is phenomenal! I had their clam chowder bread bowl and it was delicious. It was a great way to end the day at the beach. Our waitress was an absolute delight too."

Lianne O.

"We went to Brad's last night and I order the New York Steak and I have to say it was one of the best steaks I have ever had! The chef cooked it to perfection! The lady who served us was amazing too....Amazing service and amazing food, well done! I'll be back some day! To all readers you have to eat here!"

Kelvin N.

"Pretty much the only place I frequent when I come to Pismo. It was the first restaurant I was ever introduced to when I first started coming here and pretty much the only one I know I will never be disappointed with."
