There were 6 of us in our party when visiting the FisHouse. There was Halibut, Salmon and Sea Bass enjoyed by all. The consensus around the table was “nothing better than fresh food (fish) and the Santa Barbara FisHouse more than satisfied our eating desires!

Nice patio seating with a good harbor view. Waiter was very good and made the dining experience more enjoyable. Food and portions were also good. Good selection of wines.

The food was fantastic however the service was pretty slow. They were obviously not prepared for a beautiful day after THanksgiving. The seafood is out of this world and they have a very good wine menu.
