Stumbled across this late on first evening and can confirm its my favourite place to eat, great local beer and wine. Highly recommend the grilled seafood Caesar salad, amazing. Great service and atmosphere, just what I was hoping for on first visit to Santa Barbara.

Food was solid. Our server was very kind and patient with our little kids. It’s a good place to take a family or large group.

Fish was amazing, well cooked and tasty. Service was efficient. Fries were not fresh or hot when arrived otherwise would have been a 5/5. Great atmosphere.

We had dinner here recently and it was delicious. My husband had the fish tacos and I had the mahi mahi. The server was very friendly and helpful. Dinner included a salad to start or a beautiful clam chowder. Service was very quick.

I have no idea, but the food is middling to bland, very boring, the service is not good. I will never go back there anyway! (and if what you say is true, that is despicable!)

They open at 11:30am - you can make reservations on Open Table if you wish. You can bring up more info on their web site, i.e., menu, etc.

Just a few blocks from the waterfront, our restaurant in Santa Barbara operates in a century-old brick building originally home to an industrial linen service for seaside hotels. While the Douglas fir floors, soaring ceilings, and glassed cupola have always been features of this historic structure, the sweeping arches facing State Street were added after much of the building crumbled during the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake. Enterprise Fish Co. Sources Only The Freshest Fish, Brought In Daily & Prepared On Our Famous Mesquite Grill. Catch Our Maine Lobster Special Every Monday & Tuesday as Well as Our Oyster Special Every Wednesday. Don't Forget to Check Out Our Award Winning Happy Hour M-F from 4pm-8pm & Sunday from 5pm-Close
