The food here is good anyway but for HH, it's an incredible bargain. Not to mention the view is unbeatable.

Endless Summer is in a prime location at Santa Barbara Harbor with a post-card view. The best part of our experience here was the waiter who was very attentive and friendly. You might think being close to the ocean they would have salt...we ordered the chips & guacamole. The guacamole looked great, but it had zero flavor. I ordered the fish stew, which had a lot of oil (so much that I could scoop it off the top) and again zero flavor. My girlfriend had the chicken sandwich w/green chile that was very good. If the service hadn't been so good, I would have marked this place lower. Do yourself a favor, walk another 100 feet down the sidewalk to Brophy Brothers...there's a reason there's always a line there.

Typical tourist type of location with a great view. The bisque and clam chowder was fantastic. The other items we had were marginal.

Hubby & I came here for lunch on our 2nd day in SB. We sat outside as it's right on the water. I had the crab louie and he had the burger. We also had the calamari since we had a voucher for a free appetizer. Overall, very good.

We were not impressed with Endless Summer. The food was not great, the drink service took FOR-EV-ER and the service was also not good. However, the atmosphere was very nice. The music wasn't too loud, there was a nice view of the harbor, and it was very relaxing in general, unless you wanted something. We did not appreciate having to beg for everything. Also, it was very annoying that when we would receive refills on our waters, we would ask that person (since we hadn't seen our server in about 20-30 minutes) for what we needed and she had no idea about anything. She must have been new, which we understand, but it was still annoying because then the server would have to come over and ask us what we requested again, thus prolonging the time it took to receive anything.
In our opinion, this restaurant is a good example of the 'location location location' rule. I truly believe that the only reason they are still open is the fact that they have a great location and are only making money because they are overpriced. Too bad, since the atmosphere is so nice.
