We stopped in for a quick beer on our way to dinner. We were a group of 8. We are pretty much all craft beer enthusiasts and like to try local beers. The server was friendly but once she learned we were only wanting drinks...More

Nice brewery and restaurant with a lot of food choices. I had the Cali Turkey Burger, and my husband had the wings, which he said were the best ever. The beer was great, and Rick & Morty fans will appreciate their Tripe Rick IPA!

We stopped here with our 2 Labs after a day on the beach. Our burgers were very tasty and the French fries were great! The beer selection was a bit limited (lots of IPA's of which I'm not a fan) but the waitress helped me...More

Fantastic soups, fish and chips, and great house made brews! Exceptionally great service, fun vibe, and nice pit stop after a day on the beach or boardwalk. Very dog friendly and good value for yummy eats! Very refreshing!

Very poor service, extremely bland food, even my son said had no taste. Staffing seems to be ongoing issue. Our worst meal on our California trip. Shame as Seabright a lovely area for a walk at night, sit have a beer outside, but nothing relaxing...More

Seabright offers both inside and outside seating - we chose outdoors on a sunny afternoon and didn't regret it. Service was a bit slow on a busy Saturday and it appeared that they were short-staffed. Our beers were very good and my Ring of Fire...More

Beer was good, but service and food was average. Many of us had the hot wings, very small wings, and average taste. With so many other options, I definitely would not go back.

I don't know either as gluten free was not important. They are "user" friendly and just call them directly at the site listed number. Also if cost is a factor-look at their happy hour and times. Many appetizers and drinks... More

HANDCRAFTED BEER • FULL BAR • HAPPY HOUR • DOG FRIENDLY PATIO • LIVE MUSIC • 5 FLAT SCREEN TV’S Seabright Brewery has had a certain “it factor” which has made us a destination spot since 1988. We are the spot in Santa Cruz for fresh, handcrafted beers! We believe that beer tastes best when it’s made fresh, not having spent weeks in a warehouse or on a shelf. That’s why our beers are made right here, on a daily basis. We use only the finest ingredients: domestic and imported malted barley and hops, yeast and water. Open daily for lunch and dinner, our restaurant is where you’ll find not only huge burgers but the best burger, and french fries in Santa Cruz. Same goes for our cheeseburgers, fresh salads, pasta dishes, and daily specials.
