We didn't have any food here, so can't comment on that, but there was a good selection of beers, including their own and the service was very friendly.

The beer they had was very good. Though they were out of several of their brews. Food was average and nothing special. Warning....the Diablo Burger is hot and I like hot, but this was beyond hot. Service was great. Very pleasant and attentive staff.

SBBco is a good place for watching sports, and grabbing a beer. I stopped by late after walking around State st. When visiting Santa Barbara recently. It was after 10:00 pm and the service was a little slow but after I got the bartender 'a attention and got my Gold Coast all was good. I tried an appetizer- the Mac... More

We just had a steak each and a glass of wine as we weren't starving hungry and it hit the spot. It was what I fancied and it was tender and cooked ok. It wasn't the tastiest steak I have ever had but it was about half the price of the tastiest steak I have ever had so no complaints... More

This place is located right on State Street and was open and full around quarter to ten on a Monday night, while other nearby restaurant / bars were closing. This is a typical Brewing Company type place, with a warm welcome, good hearty food, great variety of drinks and keen prices. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich, whilst I... More

Really good home brewed beers or craft beers I should say. the western burger is a phenomenal sandwich it was really good. next time I'm going to try some appetizers next time to go along with it. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. Window seats are great for people watching in downtown Santa Barbara

My husband and I stopped in here to take a break from State Street. It was a perfect choice for us. We sat at the bar and the bartender allowed us to taste a few of their craft beers before we chose pints. The beers are typical of what you find in a micro brewery. We ordered the nacho's with...

I love craft beer, and found this place on a walk of State Street. The beer was very good, and we were very happy with the food as well. The pizza was fantastic. We ended up doing a football Sunday there, and then returned later in the week for lunch. Overall, a very nice place with good food and great... More

We came to this restaurant by accident while walking across the main street of santa barbara. I really loved the place, a real brewery with large screens showing many different sports. Unfortunately I don't like beer so I can't judge anyone of their homemade brews but I really loved their blue cheese burger. We ordered also a Margarita but I... More

This has a nice bar atmosphere but the food is far from bar food. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked wonderful.
