Jill's place advertises as the place where the locals eat. As far as our experience went, it was a nice environment, good food, quick service, and significantly cheaper than the touristy places near the Wharf. Highly reccomend

Jill's Place is a great place to have a dinner meeting when you are in Santa Barbara. The steaks were amazing and the service was outstanding. They also have a very extensive wine list.
