Splash clam chowder is by far the best clam chowder on the central coast. Splash is known for being a thick and creamy chowder. Although Pismo is well known location, our family loves to visit the SLO location with the bakery and bread making station....More

Fun, beachy place to eat with the best clam chowder outside of San Francisco/Boston. Service is friendly and quick, though sometimes you'll have to wait in line to place your order and there are not always enough tables. Great location... close to the beach... and...More

We had the chowder and lobster roll special! Off the hook! We eat here every time we are in town. Great for a snack or meal, the food is always excellent.

Had the ham and egg scramble. It was a great little breakfast at a great price. They were very busy and most helpful.

We went to this place for a lunch snack after seeing it on Rick Stein's food show. We were really happy with the food and the decor was fun. Service was quick and easy.

Husband will always need to stop and get the chowder, he loves it. There’s usually a line from the time it opens till it closes. There are other food choices from breakfast through dinner I’m not a clam lover but the fish was good

My husband loves to eat at Splash Cafe. He always orders the clam chowder in a bread bowl. Sometimes the lines are long but it food is worth the wait.

We have eaten here a couple times. Fish & chips are great. Chowder in the bread bowl is amazing Calamari & Chips were just OK If you are in this area it is one of the better restaurants

Splash is very near the city Pier. Get there early, usually a lineup to get this Clam Chowder. You can eat in or wander down to the new and improved pier to have your chowder.
