A popular restaurant in Goleta so there is generally a wait. Food is good -- hamburgers especially -- and the choice of beers is staggering.

Preppy lunch or dinner hangout for a relaxed crowd! They feature local brew as well as a great variety of food. We ordered Doner Kebap Plate with Cesar Salad instead of Chips, it was delicious although the Cesar dressing had a little too much garlic! Staff were efficient, friends, very quick service and very reasonable prices.

This is a restaurant beside a carpark that serves processed food made of cheap ingredients. I went with my husband and 2 children. The chicken wings and hummus we ordered to start were awful - the wings had a bad smell, were bright orange - bad quality meat smothered in sugary dyed sauce. The chicken pot pie is full of... More

They have a huge choice of home brews. Some are staples on the menu and some change seasonally. Daily specials are good and multiple TV's show different sporting events all day. Brunch served on football Sundays. Only downside is that much of their menu is a little heavy. It is all really good, though.

It was a chilly Saturday night. Stanley Cup final was going on, so placed was packed. Sat outside in patio and our heater was broken, service was slow and non-attentive, tri tip sandwich was dry and okay. I was expecting more

Best casual restaurant in the mall and a variety of beer to choose, heated outdoor patio seating. Good value.

Ok so I gather this is not that unusual in the US but for me this is more about drinking craft beer from a restaurant in a corner of a massive car park of a shopping centre. Funny thing is the product is pretty good! The beer is decent, the food is at least good and it all kinda hangs... More

We always like to try the local brew pus when we travel. Hollister was a bit of a disappointment - more of a sports bar kind of place that a serious brew pub. Beer was OK but not as good as several of the other local Santa Barbara offerings. Try Telegraph Brewery Tasting room (Milpas St, Santa Barbara); or Figueroa... More

Back home in the UK, I'm a big fan of proper real ale and small independent breweries. On seeing Hollisters was local to my accommodation I decided I really ought to try the place. Arriving around mid-day on Sunday it was encouraging to see the place moderately busy, although not so much that I had any problem getting seated. Menu... More

Not overly busy on a Saturday night, friendly service. Good food and drink, this place does flavors well yet keeps menu items unpretentious.
