Be casual, relaxing lunch, food was very good and service was great. Excellent location right on the wharf. There is also patio seating if you prefer.

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

This is basically a tourist trap except for its fantastic location in the Wharf. Avoid any complicated food and go for standard american meal.

At first we were a bit put off by the prices but the size of the portions totally made up for it. The nachos are large enough to share. the quality was very good for a touristy spot like this. Nice staff. The tables are a bit close. Beautiful views of the coastline.

And good drinks. Wish I could say more but we only sipped wine and beers at the out door teracce. However it was a great afternoon doing just that. We also tried the deepfried Oreo's, strangest foodidea I ever heard of but actually quite eatable.

Very friendly service! We sat outside and it was really nice. Clam chowder was great! Chili cheese fries - good, but spicy! Chicken wings are very good! Drinks: have a potted parrot! Good & strong. One & done! Served in a cute parrot glass. I wanted it!

The location on the Wharf is ideal but the food was not great. The staff was decent or I would have given a lower rating. I ordered the fish tacos thinking that being this close to the beach, it would be hard to mess up. I was dead wrong. These might have been the worst I have had. They were... More
