Stopped here for an early dinner one evening while on a business trip and had a fantastic dinner. Not only were the servers very knowledgeable about their menu they were very interested in helping as well. I chose the Hamburger with fig preserves, bacon, blue cheese...it was amazing! Maybe one of the top 3 burgers that I have eaten in... More

Anacapa serves very good craft beer, also really nice happy hour fish tacos and tamales. Outdoor seating. Smells a bit bad inside! I wonder why? Worth visiting!

Seating is a little tight but we always have great service, my husband is always happy with his beer recommendations and we are always happy with our food choices, our service and overall experience. I have always had the Teriyaki Salmon Salad... More

Good food, good service and a fabulous magician. What a surprise, just after we ordered a magician came to our table to entertain us. Still can't figure out how he did it. We recommend the house brewed rootbeer.

Burger was super greasy, calamari was rubbery, fish and chips have no flavor, and beer was tasteless. Service was good but food terrible. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

The Santa Rosa Red is the best beer they have but the rest are solid beers. We didn't eat here but the food looked & smelled really good. Wonderful service, the girls were awesome.

When we first looked in looked packed but once inside realised it was much bigger than it looked. There's seating at the bar if you just want drinks plus a larger eating area. Craft beers were good choice of food excellent and not to pricey. Great friendly service too.

We stopped there by chance, on our way to Santa Barbara. We had a very nice lunch. I ordered the salmon club sandwich and found it delicious. The beer was great as well. There are plenty of other menu options I would have tried. Very friendly staff.
