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 ;)

It was bad enough moving past the hobo's begging right in your face, but once inside, there were more than a few whacked out crack heads dancing and coming to our table to ask for a drink, and the water could care less when we told him. The music was so strange, not sure if they wanted to be bluegrass,... More

In Santa Barbara for the day and just came across this place. Had best shepherds pie ever and partner had very generous sized pistachio coated salmon which was excellent! Lovely friendly staff and great atmosphere. Shame we're moving on or would definitely be back tomorrow!!

There was really nothing not to like about the Brewhouse. Had a feel of a slightly raucous English brew pub. Food was good with a good variety. Note: compared to the bars on both sides of the Brewhouse, this was the spot to go. This place was packed, while the others were 1/3 full...

We came here for dinner while staying in town for a few days. We got a great range of beers (most in sampler size) and a very nice couple of steaks. The service was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this if you like beer and are after a nice place for a meal.

Thank CorvettePete
