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.

All reviews clam chowder fish and chips oyster shooters swordfish salad sea bass rice bread potatoes burger bar downstairs great seafood wait for a table worth the wait great view of the harbor bloody mary the santa barbara harbor
Have been to Santa Barbara, CA twice in past 10 years and have eaten here both times. Food is just really really good here. Would definitely eat here again. The Cajun Sea Bass just awesome. Great job guys.
Old popular place rolling on reputation . Wine came in glass that still had dishwasher soap tinge that spoiled taste of wine. Scampi and rice just OK as scampi were submerged in bowl of melted butter lemon sauce that was too thick.
Service was pleasant...More
Husband had the Cajun sea bass and he loved it. The clam chowder was delicious.
I had the pasta with shrimp and scallops. Was good but not excellent.
Service was fast, friendly and quick!
Beautiful view of the harbor.
Managed to get a table on the verandh with nice view of the harbour. A very busy place. Staff very efficient and friendly. Lots of choices on the menu food was good tried the recommended chowder which was very good.
We have visited Santa Barbara and eaten at Brophy Bros for several years now. It is a very popular, busy spot. The wait to get in is always extremely long especially for dinner. The food is good, but nothing amazing. Clam Chowder however is definitely...More
The wait for a table here can be hours! We opted to sit at the bar and had so much fun with the bartenders as well as other bar patrons. You'll want to order everything, but be warned that servings are large...and delicious! My crab...More
This place was recommended by our hotel as well. It did not disappoint. Wonderful attentive staff. Nice view of the harbor. Delicious Chowder, salad and market fresh fish. The atmosphere was great, everything made this for a wonderful evening
We were really tired from our trip and we had the chance to get a table outside. Our spot was relaxing and the energy from inside the restaurant was real !
The vibe, the service and the food made it an amazing experience.
