Out on Stern's pier this upper floor eatery has a wonderful view of the harbor, a most friendly and helpful staff, simple but complete menu and very moderate price considering the location.

If your want to eat on Stearn's Wharf and not break the bank, Longboard's is a good option. Their rooftop deck overlooking the harbor and beach provides the a seaside ambience, but tables are tight and it can be loud when they are busy. Abundant supplies of roasted peanuts are available to diners. The menu offers many appetizers, sandwiches, salads,... More

It was a beautiful day in Santa Barbara, so we took a walk on the pier. The football game was on, so we stopped at Longboard's to check the score. We ended up sitting at the bar for the whole game, enjoying a few Mean Tais (watch out!), and shared some delicious appetizers. There is outdoor seating and great service... More

Had a meal here with family prior to departing santa barbara. It was very good and the surfing theme of the place suited my family well as we are avid surfers and love the sea.The waitress was very pleasant, weather glorious-even for January and the view of the landscape surrounding Santa Barbara was a bonus!

Fantastic view of coast and harbor, patio is very comfortable . The staff is very good and have excellent knowledge what they are serving . The food is good quality , a little more expense but that is to be expected for the location. We have taken a number of friends and relatives to Long Boards over the years.

We were in Santa Barbara for the Christmas Boat Parade. Walked upstairs to Longboard's and were seated on the deck with a perfect view just as the fireworks went off. Service was excellent. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was one of the best I have ever had. Plenty of lobster! We also ordered fish tacos. Also really good with a... More

I always remember my Dad taking my sister and I to Longboard's as kids and enjoying their sliders. To this day when I visit, I always order those tiny burgers! As I got older, I finally got to enjoy their cocktails, and man do they make them tough! As a warning, this is on a pier, you will see pigeons... More

The drink looks innocuous but at the end, watch out, have a designated driver. We had the shrimp cocktail, the shrimp were the size of my husband's palm. Delish, then we had the deep fried Mahi Mahi. Pretty darn tasty and excellent service and an excellent upper deck view. I would go back if given the chance.

I have said it before, if there is a Patty Melt on the menu I'll order it. If you are a restaurant worth your salt you'll do it right. Sorry, Longboard's fell short. The beef was very dry and the rye bread was not toasted on the flat top very well. It too was dry, dry, dry. I had no... More

We visited Longboard's last Friday night while in town for our college reunion. Some friends gathered outside late at night to catch up and enjoy drinks and dessert. The cookie monster is always a sure fire hit and they have great drinks. We all visited outside for hours and were not rushed out of there - even when the server... More
