Great, large menu. The Bloody Mary was phenomenal. We would go back if we hit Santa Barbara again. Our waitress was beyond friendly and attentive.

“Yum!”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

We ate here on our last night in Santa Barbara and it was delicious. I had the Prime Rib special (it was medium rare as ordered), my husband had the Beef Stroganoff and our son had the Salmon. Everyone was happy with their meals and were also pleased that we were there in time for "Happy Hour" drinks. We will definitely come back the next time we visit Santa Barbara.

“Love the food and beer”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

We like to come here when visiting Santa Barbara. Everything we ordered were delicious,,,fish tacos, chicken wings, and of course the home made potato chips with the melted blue cheese....the beer is also very good. Definitely a place to come back to.

“We liked it so much we went back the next day!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Santa Barbara has a LOT of restaurants and dining options but it's all about what you're looking for. Price, menu, location, dog friendly -- these are the things we look at. Brewhouse is casual with crispy fries, tasty salads, crisp drinks and fat sandwiches - and I mean that in a good way. Both of our waitresses were perky, friendly and good at what they did. We sat outside on a sunny day and an overcast one. Both weather types were comfortable. Easy parking, close to downtown and quick service. Lots of interesting familiar dishes to try. It's a great place for conversation with your dining partner or striking up a chat with your neighbor while your dogs say hello. I loved the inside as well with it's tall, old booths and cement floors.

“Yummy food / beer & dog-friendly!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We were staying at the Beach House Inn, and this place happened to be 2 blocks away -- and it looked very busy so we gave it a try. Very good food. My husband had the enchiladas, I had the Cobb Salad with a grilled artichoke for app. Their home-brewed Apricot Wheat was Yummy, and we were able to bring our dog too --- so we will definitely be going back!
