Just wanted a quick lunch during shopping & found the ideal spot at Eureka! Outside seating option lets you enjoy sunshine and atmosphere of Santa Barbara. Was pleasantly surprised by "Hoppy" Hour at 2 pm and really enjoyed the fresh nachos.

This is a good place to go hang out with a buddy for dinner and watch sports. It could get a bit noisy at times so not the greatest if you want to do conversation. The burgers are a bit small but tasty nevertheless.

We ordered a salad and salmon. My partner enjoyed his ample salmon. My choice was too spicy (I don't like spicy things at all which so many restaurants have now), then I tried their ceviche...it was superb, big portion for an appetizer! Attentive service.

Decided to do an early, light dinner at Eureka's happy hour [before 6:00 p.m.]. The chicken sliders were good but ordinary, and the mahi-mahi tacos were too spicy for my taste, totally overwhelming any taste the chunks of fish might have had. Maybe should have...More

I'd describe this as an upscale sports bar without the sports. My Fresno fig burger was very tasty and so were my wife's chicken sliders. They have a great beer selection but a few lemons mixed in. Our server Tyler did a great job!
