Pretty location but pricey

Great location to watch the sunset. Food and drinks are pricey. Drinks were good. Peanut shells on the floor. You can drive onto the pier and park next to the restaurant.

The food is good, cocktails are good too, but it's the location that makes this place. On a warm sunny day, you sit out on the deck (above the Harbor restaurant) and watch the sailboats enter and exit the harbour. Santa Barbara is beautiful, and this place allows a great 360 degree view to appreciate the sea and the mountains.

When we arrived it was very busy and were shown to a small semi circle table against the edge, thought at first that the table would not be big enough but it was. The ambience was good with a nice relaxing feel to it. Because... More

Had a delicious meal at Longboard's Grill in Santa Barbara with friends and family. I was quickly greeted and seated with my large party of 8 even at the height of dinner time. The service was a little slow but good and the food was delicious! I ordered the Fish and Chips made from a tasty fried Mahi Mahi and... More

Located at the second floor or the Harbor Restaurant at the Pier; the restaurant has great views, especially on a clear day. The service however was not good and had a negative impact on our dinning experience. The food was taking a bit long to come out so we asked one of the waiters if he could look into it;... More

Only had some appies and a couple drinks, but would definitely return. Calamari and clam chowder were both good, had a craft beer on tap that I liked, sun was shining and the view was amazing 1 floor up from the wharf. Cheers!

This is our favorite place to come! Every time we are in the area we have lunch here. Love the location and love the food. Service is always good too. Love eating peanuts! Clam chowder bowl is great. Fish tacos too.

Located upstairs in the Harbour restaurant, has a great view of the water. We had appetizers and drinks and both were fine. The appetizer menu, however, did not have many offerings.
