Not being much of a beer drinker, I didn't think I was going to like this place. I was pleasantly surprised, however. We had a rather large group (10) and no reservations, but were welcomed in and quickly seated. The waitress was really cute and did her best to keep all of us served and happy, even though she was...

Here you can get taste of beer who has own taste you will not find anywhere else. You like beer you have to try. Place a question for the beerchoice and you get a small tasteting glas before you buy the big one :-) Food is excellent. Screens are avaible (NFL) You go in it's hard to leave :-)

Had an early dinner here following a trip to Santa Barbara. They have a interesting selection of craft beers that they brew to suit all tastes. If you can't choose try their 5 beer tasting platter and try them all. If you get there during happy hour (3-6) you can get very cheap draught beers and reduced price starters. The... More

We walked here from East Beach and were looking for a light dinner and a casual vibe. The idea of a brewpub with a gazillion TVs tuned to Sunday night pro football and college basketball fit the bill. Plus, it was dark, we'd been walking for a while, and wanted to relax. Liked the staff. The host was very accommodating... More

We stopped at the Santa Barbara Brewing Company for lunch on a recent visit to Santa Barbara and it hit the spot. The beer was really good and my pulled pork sandwich was a pleasant surprise. They put some kind of Orange Marmalade on it which worked real well with the pork. I was with my family and 7 out... More

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
