Cheaper than harbor restaurant on the first floor. Outside patio. Ate inside by bar big windows. Great view of harbor. Very casual. Very tasty hamburger.

Enjoyed a meal here whilst in Santa Barbara. Good choice of food a little on the expensive side but worth it for the view of the ocean and marina. Take a jacket in the evening as it does get chilly at the end of the Wharf.

On Sundays, it's a grand place to watch the sailboats parade out to race, then come back while you, sane & dry, sip your margarita or drink a beer, and eat chips. You pay for the view, but out on the deck is a laid-back, serene... More

It's an ok restaurant with ok food on Stearns Wharf. A lot of breaded/fried food so if you're looking for fresher tasting food, try elsewhere. Restaurant is a bit basic. Family friendly.

During our recent trip to Santa Barbara, my husband and my seven-year-old son and I ate at Longboard's Grill twice. I had the shrimp tacos once and the clam chowder once. Between the two I would recommend the shrimp tacos. The chowder was good but the tacos were delicious! The beer list is nice and you can enjoy some local... More
