We were looking for a bar with food to watch the World series and the Endless Summer bar fit the bill!
Nice casual atmosphere with vintage surf boards hanging from the ceiling. Two patios were available, one with 2 pool tables and both with a great view of the harbor. The bartender was very friendly and service was good. I had a Mai Tai and my husband had an IPA (sorry, can't remember the brand). The Mai Tai was just the way I like it, not too sweet. From the happy hour menu we ordered the sliders and crispy calamari, both were good. If you go there, sit at the bar for the beautiful view!

Less expensive than Chuck's (directly below), no need to dress and same/similar food. Great service, ate out on the deck with a wonderful night time view of SB. Hubby had Mahi Mahi which he liked & I had an awesome seared ahi/spinach salad w/walnuts, onion and warm dressing. Also enjoyed Oaktoberfest beer from Firestone Brewing.

Typical bar food. Nothing special or out of the ordinary. The service was okay. With drinks and a tip it was about $45 for the two of us. It was not one of the more memorable meals on our west coast trip.

Situated in the harbor area, an upstairs bar with a good view in one direction. They offer a great fish and chips, fun adult and kids drinks, and a nice staff. Pool table on the deck. Be sure to stop by the tourism office and pick up a coupon for a free appetizer.

I had spent the day at the beach with family and didn't want to go anywhere fancy for dinner and wanted something close by. A mom recommended this place and I'm happy she did - it was just right. The Endless Summer Bar Cafe is located upstairs above Chucks Waterfront Grill. There was about a 20 minute wait. Unlike most restaurants that are packed and busy, both the hostess and our waitress were very nice and friendly. We were seated on the patio which had a nice view of the harbor. The children's menu had 8 choices, which is pretty good for a children's menu. The prices were reasonable and the food was good. I gave this restaurant a 4 star because, even though the food was just good, the service and the view made this restaurant rank higher.
