While most people come to Brad's for the live music, the food is actually really good and good value. We had the ribs twice this trip and they are excellent. Ask for extra bbq sauce. We really like going early to catch the sunset. This...More

Food is as I've always remembered it, big portions, full flavours, and affordable. Great atmosphere. I almost always get the arrachara as it is so good. Burritos are one of the best bargains on the menu though. Always a unique blend of veggies come as...More

We went when they had battle of the guitars. The guitar players were amazing. The food was very good and reasonably priced. It reminded me of an old fashioned bbq with the family back home! Brad is very welcoming and the staff is very friendly....More

I'm not sure there is an exact address for Brad's. If you look at Google maps, it's on "El Morro" around where Hotel Santa Fe, Bungalows Santa Cruz, or Sabor a Mar are marked.
