    What a view! They like to throw cilantro into stuff, so beware if that's not your genetic jam.

    Reasonably priced for Oceanside dining in SB. Clam chowder could've been better but the sirloin tip appetizer and crab spinach dip were great!

    Hands down best happy hour and view. While your waiting for a table for there is usually a wait, you can watch the sunset or take a quick stroll on the beach.

    Any time I drive into town, it is usually late afternoon. This is my immediate first stop for a happy hour while staring at the ocean.

    Eggs Benedict on Dungeness Crab is a must have! Something lighter? Get the home made granola, fruit & fresh vanilla bean low fat yogurt. Great value for the $ & superb service.

    This is a great stop for a drink or bite to eat before or after hitting the water that's only yards away. The Sunday Brunch is also amazing—be sure to try the blood orange margaritas!

    Best place for a beachside brunch in Santa Barbara. A little off the beaten path, so it tends to be less touristy.
