Lovely dinner (my husband said it was the best Porterhouse he had whilst we were in California), friendly service (from our female hostess, the guy was miserable) great choice of beer.

Nice place with a very good selection of beer. Food is okay, fairly standard bar food that has good veggie options.

I met friends here tonight for happy hour. Had the Belgian Lace Honey Ale after receiving knowledgable advice from server. Nice neighborhood spot for unpretentious food and extensive beer selection. Beer was good, happy hour fish & chips batter was a bit soggy but still tasty.

Wonderful off-the-beaten-path neighbourhood brewpub. We discovered this place on our recent visit to Santa Barbara. We were staying at a nearby hotel and enjoyed the short walk to get here. The beer is really good - I had a tasting flight and loved them all. The food was good pub food, and the staff were attentive and friendly. There are... More

A good variety of beers, wines, and booze! They also had an extensive menu with many tasty choices. This includes great burgers, sandwiches, and entries to please everyone.

At the suggestion of our hotel clerk - we strolled up to the Brewhouse after checking in on our first night in Santa Barbara. We absolutely loved it. It’s off the beat path a bit and the walk didn't feel 100% safe but it was only a block or 2 away. We sat at the bar & ordered our first... More

The waitress seemed pretty swamped and it took some time to get orders in (if you are in a hurry you probably should not go to any pub, though.) They offer 4 oz pours of any of their 16 brews at $1.5-$2 a pop. We ordered all 16 and they were all very solid. The stouts were particularly impressive as... More

Nothing fancy just good beer and the food was very good pub food. Kind of off the beaten path, just happened to be close to where we were.

It's loud and busy but a great place to go. Service was great and the food came quick even though it was full of people. The b-b-que ribs are to die for but you better be hungry! Will for sure go and eat there again next time we are in Santa Barbara.

I found this place through Tripadvisor. It is not fancy but has a cool atmosphere, good beer selection, and fantastic sandwiches. We had teenage boys with us and they were pleased with the size of the portions. I liked the variety of beers-session beers, IPAs, and Belgians. Inexpensive and yummy.
