Good food, good atmosphere.

Good family restaurant. Food was great, service was also very good. Deck is great for enjoying the water views.

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.

I cannot tell you about the food because we just stopped in for a drink while visiting the pier. I can however tell you the best drinks around are here at Longboard's Grill. The love of my life had a Long Island Iced Tea and believe me one of these is all you can drink. It is huge and potent.... More

We arrived at opening, 11:30 am, and were the first customers of the day. We decided to split a Harbor Burger which turned out to be a good decision - it is quite large, spendy and one of the best burgers I have eaten! I ordered an 805 Blonde Ale with lunch and wish I had bought a six-pack to... More

Stopped in for lunch after wandering Wharf. Looked chaotic but we sat down and servers were right there with menus. Service pretty fast and food was actually pretty good, all on a sunny busy Sunday afternoon. Outside dinning protected from the wind and the birds (mostly). Enjoyable hour plus of eating and drinking.

Actually the food was good. I had a turkey burger and fries. However, before the food arrived I watched as the pigeons walked across the tables where people were going to eat. Once the people were seated, the tables were not wiped down. During the meal I turned around to find three pigeons sitting on the back of the chair... More
