What a surprise to have an outstanding ribeye at a brewpub. My wife had the prime rib and it was also excellent with very strong horse radish on the side. This place was just a block away from the train station, 2 blocks from the Funk Zone. Worth a stop.

Decided to try the Brewhouse out on our second night in Santa Barbara. We were after a pub with decent food and this place hit the mark. Food and service could not be faulted with some more than decent home brewed beer. Highly Recommend.

Stopped here as it was within a few minutes walk from our hotel. So glad we did, the waitress was really friendly, the food was delicious with a large choice and there was a large beer selection as well. Would definitely recommend here.

The food was ok .. Not really wow ! Good beer and very friendly staff .. We were sitting on the terrace witch is close to the way .. But the place was quite full so I guess it's a good place for drinking beer ;)
