Brophy Bros. was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at in Santa Barbara. We went at 6 PM on a Friday night, and there was a 45 minute wait. I was hoping that meant that the food was great. However, we waited in the bar downstairs (as there was no room to wait upstairs) and then were finally seated. The sourdough bread they give you to start was the best part of the meal for me. Everything was very "quantity over quality". The mahi-mahi dish I ordered came with a huge starter salad (absolutely drenched in ranch dressing) and also had sides of rice (seriously a mountain of rice), coleslaw, and a very large portion of fish. The fish was ok, but I've seriously had better mango salsa at Outback. The place was absolutely packed, noisy, and the waiters were just running around like crazy. I really wasn't impressed at all, and wouldn't go back if we were in the area. Maybe it would be a better place for someone who wanted a lot of food for the money.
