Well yes, if you are in Santa Bárbara, either on vacation or on business, one morning you have to book it for breakfast at Boathouse ... go early, so you can have a nice place on the terrace facing the sea ... Quick!! The food is great, better to go hungry ... if not you won't finish it! When you finish, a walk along the shore of the beach will make you have a great morning !!
One of my favorite restaurants in Santa Barbara. Right on the beach with beautiful views all around. Be prepared to wait longer on the weekends, I would say about two hours. They don't take reservations, walk in only.
But let me tell you, you won't regret it. The food is delicious.
Lobster roll was delicious. Fish sticks was cooked perfectly. Crunchy tasty batter and not oily. French fries were great. Tasty, perfect cook not too soft and not too crisp.
Great breakfast place.
Arrive early as there is typically a wait.
We waited 30 minutes and took the dog for a walk down the beach as we waited for a table outside the glass.
Came here on a Saturday during a holiday weekend and service was surprisingly quick. The drinks were great and the food was fantastic. Tried 3 different plates and all were great. Enjoyed my time here. Parking is tight but the view was worth it.
