A great view of the marina at a reasonable price. There are plenty of tables overlooking the water and no waiting time when I went. I had the Maine lobster special, it was a fair price and the chef did a nice job with the lobster. Only one down side, the carrots would have been a little better had they been peeled prior to being steamed. The broccoli had nice flavor and not over cooked. I travel on business every single month of the year and eat at tons of restaurants. If you are in Santa Barbara, this is one of the places to check out.

Great meal right on the wharf. The seafood pasta is delightful. Ask for the pink sauce or vodka sauce. It isn't on the menu but great!

It's an odd, touristy little place with mixed service and below average apps. Try to get a spot out on the patio.

With great service and nice food, this place could be a must in the Santa Barbara area. Surrounding restaurants are good, but one is to smelly and the other is more expensive. Here the have a nice Pasta and great tacos. Salads are very good also. I loved to see the sunset here, with a great glass of wine¡¡¡

Was given a table by a window overlooking the kayakers and boaters...it was a beautiful, sunny day and there was lots of activity in the water. My friend and I had the citrus-y salmon dinner and tuna fish sandwich; both were excellent, and generously proportioned. Had to stay for coffee to prolong the meal (but were too full for dessert :( ). Service was excellent (without being intrusive) and price was reasonable (for a meal on the pier.) Looking forward to a return visit.
