Fish was amazing, well cooked and tasty. Service was efficient. Fries were not fresh or hot when arrived otherwise would have been a 5/5. Great atmosphere.

We had dinner here recently and it was delicious. My husband had the fish tacos and I had the mahi mahi. The server was very friendly and helpful. Dinner included a salad to start or a beautiful clam chowder. Service was very quick.

Even though the Enterprise Fish company is down by the pier, it has a warm local feel to it rather than a cold touristy restaurant. The bar is always lively and the happy hours are good. The fish is always fresh and the atmosphere is...More

Never disappoints. Varied menu. Gets somewhat crowded at times and noisy. But the food is very good and never disappoints.

We enjoy this restaurant and haven’t visited for a few years. On a little getaway to Santa Barbara we dropped in for Happy Hour. They offer a few drink specials and small plates. We shared poke and popcorn shrimp for appetizers, then shared the mixed...More

Santa Barbara has so many choices of fish we though we try Enterprise! Been there for over 40 years! We were not disappointed! Just loud inside! It’s great to see the kitchen in the middle with all of the action of the food be prepared!...More

This place is large and the ambiance was excellent. The menu was solid with a good selection of wines, seafood and drinks. The Sole was to die for, best Ive ever had! The oysters were poorly shucked, need work there. Calamari was superb. Service was...More

I have no idea, but the food is middling to bland, very boring, the service is not good. I will never go back there anyway! (and if what you say is true, that is despicable!)

They open at 11:30am - you can make reservations on Open Table if you wish. You can bring up more info on their web site, i.e., menu, etc.

Just a few blocks from the waterfront, our restaurant in Santa Barbara operates in a century-old brick building originally home to an industrial linen service for seaside hotels. While the Douglas fir floors, soaring ceilings, and glassed cupola have always been features of this historic structure, the sweeping arches facing State Street were added after much of the building crumbled during the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake. Built in 1917, the historic building now home to our Santa Monica restaurant was once a transfer station for the narrow-gauge Red Car line, Los Angeles' first mass transit system. It was later the repair house for the world-famous Pacific Ocean Park, home to the oldest wooden roller coaster west of the Mississippi. These days, we're still a stone's throw from Venice Beach, heart of where L.A. goes to play -- and eat.
