We had 2 dinners there. The food was good and well cooked. Brewhouse did not have 1000 Island dressing for the burgers though. Also my husband asked for a booth and the hostess said they were for 5 or more guests. This was odd as they had seated the 2 of us in the booth the previous night.

Any meal is good especially if you get the enchiladas or nachos or the salmon salad or anything really. definitely stop by on the weekends and enjoy brunch with bottomless mimosas and a full buffet brunch. Grab a seat on the patio and bring your furry friends because pets are welcomed.

We had a quick stopover in Santa Barbara and happened to stumble across this place. They served great food and the service was excellent. I would go back with friends.

As a hotel employee I love that I can offer The Brewhouse as an option for my guests. Pet friendly, affordable local favorite with a variety of dining choices in their menu.

Really good night spent here, a good range of ales / beers / largers. Good food too. Full of locals who were extremely friendly. Recommend asking the staff for advice.
