We had a great time here... we loved the view! The food is good kinda similar to a Ruby's diner. My husband had a cheeseburger & I had a chicken sandwich. They do have a great selection of cocktails. The service is OK being that the severs are swamped. The deck could probably accommodate up to 100 guests and when... More

This is a great place to grab a drink right on the wharf in Santa Barbara. Great bartenders and the food and drinks were great as well.

Sat on the roof and had a great burger and fries. All of their food looks good. They do not have gluten free options. Would eat here again.

Food was good but overpriced. Service left something to be desired, especially with the high price of the food and drinks.

Nice place for lunch, outside on the terrase on the sun was quite nice. We had some burgers and sandwiches which were good, they come with fries and salad. I had the harbour burger which was with bacon, my wife had the gaucho which was better as it had chili and jalapenos. We had a beer each but the price... More

Great views of the seals playing in the water and decent food and drinks. Service good at time of going. Everyone there seemed to be on the same tip as us and there was a nice easy-going vibe. We had seafood and red meat which was all cooked well...which is exactly what you want from a grill

Stopped in for a bit of nostalgia from days past. We sat outside for the view but the pigeons were more of a nuisance than entertainment. Our drinks were still as enjoyable inside but it became more of a bar scene. The food sounded and looked better than it tasted. Pricey overall but given the surroundings, it was to be... More
