“Great location, food not bad either”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We had lunch here whilst lazing on the beach at the weekend. It was jumping since there was so much going on at the beach. Service fairly quick, food was fine and filled a gap, but nothing to write home about. No complaints tho, prices good. Its at a great location right on the beach so gets a lot of trade at the weekend, but is pretty empty on week days, at least it was when we were back at the beach on the Monday.

“Great views and ok food”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

I took my wife to have breakfast here while on vecation in Santa Barbara. The atmosphere and location was realy good. You are right on the beach with a view of The waves roling in.

The place seems to have a lot of local people and not just tourists which was nice. Unfortunatelly the food is overpriced, although it tasted ok. Nothing special, but all in all an ok place to have breakfas.

“What a view!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Very casual beach bar that is across from the Hyatt. This is great for Breakfast and Lunch. It is cheaper than the Hyatt and much faster. Service is excellent. Order from the window and the waitress delivers to the outside table.
The cheese omelette and wheatgerm pancakes were good. Birds can be a problem.

“Breakfast here cannot be beat!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

East Beach Grill is a regular stop for us. We love to spend Sunday mornings on the patio enjoying the beach and an occasional dodge ball game on the sand. The wheat germ pancakes are the star here but the omelettes and oatmeal are also delicious. It is a relaxed vibe and you cannot get much closer to the sand. Lunch is a good mix of sandwiches, tacos and such. They also serve beer on tapas well as a few wines. Love this place!
