Since it was such a sunny day, we ate up on the top patio under an umbrella. Great views! We had the fish tacos which were wonderful and more than enough to share. 3 large overstuffed taco with all the condiments you will need. Our appetizer was their garlic bread. Oh, Yum!! That could've been my whole lunch.

Nice place for a casual dinner. Wide variety of cocktails and beers. Good burgers and seafood. Its nice to watch the boats and birds. Relaxed servers who paid attention.

I stopped by to have a glass of wine and shrimp cocktail. $29.11. I asked for change. I was going to leave a generous $9 tip, but needed $2 in change. She brought me a ten and a one. She's lucky I'm a former waitress, or she would have received $1 for taking my order and bringing 1 glass of... More

Salmon Salad was good, not excellent. Burnt Tips sandwich was over cooked. Crab cocktail had shells in it. Shrimp cocktail was awesome. Fried shrimp were massive and cooked properly, but slaw was flavorless.

I visited here with some work colleagues / friends June 2014, and we all had a great time. Does exactly what it says on the tin - it's a grill and diner. It's not meant to be fancy. The seafood here is great , the pulled pork that I had was gorgeous ( I'm a big sucker for pulled pork)... More

Located on the Stearns Wharf, the upper open aired patio is the best place to grab a drink order some sea food tacos and stare at the ocean. Good service, great selection and resonably priced.

Excellent service with excellent food and ocean views makes for an memorable dinner experience. Try the sizzling sirloin with mushrooms, perfect!

Had a lovely lunch at Longboards grill, had some tasty calamari to start and then equally as tasty burger - just be aware that portions are huge! Service was quick and very friendly for all staff that we saw. Following a walk down the pier we went back to longboards where we enjoyed a fair few tasty cocktails - whilst... More

It is a very nice option to have a view of the harbor, enjoy a meal (portions are very big) and have a cold drink! The patio, where we seat, have glass that make it not wind, but with sun and views !! Very good option in Santa Barbara for a good time !!

A group of us took the train from Glendale, CA to Santa Barbara, CA on Saturday. After walking around for a while, we walked out onto the pier and stopped at Longboard’s for lunch. Our waiter took our drink order and soon we were sipping away. Then he took our lunch order and that’s where things began to decline. I... More
