  • Good to see that that mainstay of Pismo Beach, the Splash Cafe, is still alive and well. Your pix brought back some great memories of the Central Coast.

    And the steak looks good too ;)

    I went along on that trip too, just from your pictures! It didn't look like ANYONE was the designated driver. How did you guys ever navigate?

    Boy, that steak looked good after all that wine!

    There are a number of places that have great chowder,this is served with fresh king crab on top and is pretty tasty.
