“A new favorite in Santa Barbara!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Tucked away down by the marina is a gem of place called Chuck's Waterfront Grill. We had the pleasure of sitting outside, watching the fisherman bring in their catch while sitting on a nice patio sipping wine. Our dinner was absolutely delicious and well-prepared. We had a calamari appetizer that was to die for. Dungeness crab pasta was stellar! I will definitely be revisiting on my next trip to SB!

“Excellent Service, Good food”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

The location of this restaurant is one of its main allures. Sitting outside on the patio is key. The service was also very good. The food was good but not great.

“Dinner”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We made it to dinner for one night and it was really good. My husband had Halibut and I had a steak. Very good, for some very tired travelers at this point in our trip.

After a cloudy start, the sun came out in the afternoon. Following our trip on the Condor Express we walked along the waterfront and sat outside on the patio in the sunshine.

“On a sunny day, there's no better place to dine in Santa Barbara”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

...ask for a table on the outdoor patio (which is covered by canvas sails!) and enjoy the gorgeous views of the harbor, coastline, and lots and lots of boats...while enjoying a delightful meal in an incredible spot! Fresh seafood is plentiful, and some of the best desserts around! accompanied by a location that rivals the best of European ports and harbor side dining...It just couldn't be any more fun than this!
