  • Very interesting touristic location. Fresh air, ocean views and crab sandwich in the restaurant are great combination. 
  • We really enjoy just wandering out along the wharf. There's a few quirky shops and some great eateries. the views back to Santa Barbara are great too. 
  • Wonderful views of santa barbara coast line. Some cute shops and tasty icecream on the wharf. I just wanted to sit there for a while but yeah it does get smelly. 
  • Good wine. I prefer the flight of wines, try them all you won't regret it. Great conversation on the outdoor patio overlooking a scenic Santa Barbara. Overall it's a must see if you ever visit.
  • Food was very good and a reasonable value considering the location on the wharf. Very conscious of Gluten Free food for my wife. Service was a bit slow but not painfully so.
  • Overall good experience. I only dropped in for a beer and a happy hour special. I had the fish tacos. For the price l, portion size and taste I left full.
  • Had a great stop here on the way to Pismo Beach, saw some sea lions swimming around fishermen trying to catch fish. Also a very interesting view of the oil rigs in the distance.
  • This is one of my favorite piers. It is really long and there are many shops on the pier. When I came there the weather was really good which gave me a really good view on the coast of Santa Barbara. It's a must see!
