Brophys is the “go to” place in SB for fun & good food. Granted, it’s always busy but you can’t beat the food! It’s not a quiet place by any means so a “romantic evening” might not be the ticket. BUT, if you enjoy really...More

The view from the deck has beautiful riviera views and its fun to watch what is going on in the harbor. They put up plastic in bad weather (which is rare in SB), and the heaters work well. Everywhere is crowded, and indoors can be...More

We ate at the little bar downstairs. The server was very spaced out and wasn’t taking care of the customers at all. Luckily we were sitting right in front of him so we were able to get his attention when we needed service. Got the...More

We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Santa Barbara Harbor. You’ll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at this true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the “small” menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the “long” menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals’ favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.
