I loved this place. The title says it all... it's not on State St, but it's not far out of the way. It's definitely worth the short trip from State St. for this place.

The 30-somethings fill this place, but you'll see families in the early dinner hours. The food is pretty darned good. Nothing too fancy but in general, healthy and tasty.

If you want an authentic Santa Barbara restaurant experience with great beer and amazing food then you should visit the Brewhouse. Only place in town with free live music 4-5 nights per week. Huge menu; everything from basic pub grub to pistachio encrusted salmon, bacon wrapped fillet and signature dishes like the enchiladas that you will only find here. Relaxed... More

This is a locals hangout. Good drinks, music at night and a casual and delicious brunch on Sundays. All you can eat for $15 or $18 with a Bloody Mary. If the weather is nice, sit outside. Made to order omelettes, eggs Benedict, waffles, bacon, fruit, etc. Didnt try it but people were talking about the all you can eat... More

While visiting Santa Barbara with our Boxer we looked for pet-friendly restaurants and found The Brewhouse. Although there are plenty of pet-friendly places in Santa Barbara, The Brewhouse went above and beyond...even offering a low-cost Canine Companion menu just for our four-pawed patron. The food was delicious and they offered a wide variety of brews created by the restaurant. The... More

Good food at a reasonable price with typical bar atmosphere. Excellent beers and lots of TV's for watching the game. If you don't like a loud, bar crowd watching sports, this would not be the place for you. Well worth a try for good beer and grub.

We had a good meal there recently and the beers are good to match. Surroundings are a bit basic but no problem. Service was a bit mixed, ask for a beer then asked again ! Menu choice is good, worth a visit

The food is solid fare and reasonably priced. The beers were very good and offered a number of options, though many were on the hoppy side. Definitely worth while if you do not mind a grunge eatery with good food and beer.
