I knew what to expect

I hade visted Longboard's Grill a couple years ago and they have a good bar with the great Santa Barbara view. Had my son this visit and we couldn't wait on our first choice on where to eat that night. It is a bit crowded on the deck, enough to cause a server wine spill on us. Good beer &... read more

Great casual waterfront for all 3 meals. Inside is air conditioned, deck is open air. Free peanuts litter the deck and service is great.

This is a fun restaurant with open seating and a great view of the harbor, both inside and outside on the patio. Servers were fun, but the restaurant was very busy and the service suffered a little. We ordered the fish tacos; plenty of food to share between two people. The fish in the taco was frozen, not fresh, and... More

It was clean. Our server was friendly and present. The food lacked flavor. The fries were good. I ordered the fish tacos; could have used (more) sauce on top. They do give you a lot of food but I'd prefer flavor over quantity. There are 3 tacos in the order. Here's an idea, cut out one taco and lower the... More

Went to Brophy's which was over stuffed with people and decided to give Longboards a try. I am so glad I did. It is a great casual place to go, you can sit on the patio or inside. Nice selection of coldddd beer. They had a nice priced happy hour, free popcorn and discounted appetizers ( I think 50%)......a view.

It was eight years ago that we ate here last, coming from the midwest. So, we made sure to stop at Santa Barbara on our vacation so we could eat at Longboard's again! We enjoy setting outside upstairs on the pier! The food is good too! My son loves the steamers!

Nice setting on the pier, food not spectacular but certainly very good, and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Service was probably five stars, actually. Prices seemed reasonable given the location. My family of four had a good experience overall. Too bad about the loud foursome at the table next to ours; they swore like sailors despite the presence of our two... More

Went to Longboards for drinks after the fireworks show. Place pretty empty but great service. Had a couple of Amaretto Sours then returned to hotel.

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.
