This is a great place to go for food and drink. There are beautiful views out over the water and towards the harbour, if you go during the day / early evening. If you visit at night, you can always sit indoors, but beware of the monkey nuts. They are in huge barrels and you can help yourself to handfuls if you want. Unfortunately, the drawback to that is that everyone uses the floor as their dustbin. The cocktails were fantastic and if you are going to have a Cocktail Night, have it here...! Food was lovely and a couple of us had the Lemon Meringue Pie - absolutely delicious!

We enjoyed our lunch here the other day. It was another beautiful day in Santa Barbara and we wanted to eat at a place with a view. This fit the bill nicely.

We each ordered something different. - my wife had a wrap, I had the fish and chips special, and our daughter chose the lobster roll. They were all really good. Generous portions.

Service was friendly and efficient. Prices are reasonable for a spot on the water. Park in the free area on the pier or pay for parking near the beach. Both are relatively convenient. We like to walk around a lot so we used the pay parking and were fine with the $2/hour rates.

Spent a couple of pleasant hours on their 2nd story deck on the Santa Barbara Pier. Had drinks and played cards for awhile. Specialty drink list - we all got something different and they were all great. Mine was chambord with ice cream. yum!

Went there for lunch based on a recommendation by our hotel. Food is just fair and overpriced. The biggest problem is they do nothing to keep the pigeons off the deck. Leaving food on a table for 20 minutes so that a flock of birds can cause a frenzy is unsanitary. Should have figured that a place in such a commercial tourist trap would be fair at best. I guess just grabbing a drink there is the way to go.

We had a nice dinner at Longboard's Grill upstairs patio. The Kona Burger was a 1/2 pound burger with the works and yummy fries and Cole slaw. I shared it with my son and it was still more than I could eat. I paired it with a Long board Lager beer that was excellent. The Fish and Chips Meals were also very attractive looking meal. The tile work in the bar and bathrooms were very cool with marine life and long boards and woody vehicles. Wish there was a way to keep pigeons away.
