A good basic brew house

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.

We stopped for dinner, and then went back again the next day. There is a nice selection of draft beers, including some unusual ones (some very unusual, you may want to try a taste first). We tried 4 kinds of sandwiches and were more than happy with them. Seating outside (limited) is relaxing and feels family oriented - dogs, kids... More

Outside great but inside can be noisy as it's a bit sporty it there is a quieter section. Great homemade beers and superb food; you must try pan seared ahi tuna.....

We found this place on accident and I'm so glad we did. The beers here are amazing (try the apricot), and the food was so good (the friedd pickles were my fav!) The service is also really good. Skip the downtown Santa barbara strip, and come here- you won't be dissapointed!

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.
