Interesting place

The brew house is a real find for anyone who loves beer . The staff were really friendly there suggesting what beers to try but a word of warning some of the beers are very strong!!!

We have five year old and was worried about it being a brewhouse. When we arrived we saw several kids and they have a child's menu with standard options like mac n cheese. There is a very nice outside area and also a restaurant area. The bar is separate through a doorway. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The... More

Lots of choice in Santa Barbara, but this place was recommended by a local and we were not disappointed. Good menu and food and a choice of real beer. Also reasonable prices. Good portion size as well.

loved the food... My husband has the Shepard's pie and said it was wonderful. I had the grilled artichoke, one of the best I've ever had. We were here on vacation. Seems like a local place and apparently well liked. Service was very attentive and friendly. Just a bit noisy to my taste.

The Brewhouse was near our hotel and was recommend by a friend. The beer is good and they have an expansive menu. It was really hard to pick out what to eat. We both went to the "favorites" part of the menu. I went with the BBQ ribs and my wife for the enchiladas. The ribs were cooked well and... More

We stopped in for a late afternoon refreshment, and ended up ordering their absolutely incredible nachos....twice. The best ever, and a very generous portion. Locally brewed beer very good. Good bar tables with views of the street. Good service. You should stop in.

The Brewhouse is a must stop for me when in Santa Barbara. They have a wonderful selection of beer and an extensive selection of food. This time 8 of us stopped there for a lunch after going to the zoo. Our server (Thomas) was friendly and attentive. The sandwiches were all excellent and the salads fresh. The beer was good... More

I love this place. 3 excellent IPAs and an assortment of other craft brews. The food is very good and the price is right. Add the friendly service and staff and the location, near State Street and near the beach, and you have one good reason for visiting Santa Barbara.
