We shared the New England Chowder in a sourdough bowl and the stuffed chicken breast, along with a beer on tap. The food, beverage and the service were all very good. Plus, we had a lovely view of the harbor and sunset. We would go...More

On visitor attraction Stearn's Wharf, it has valet parking & free parking nearby. Staff is friendly and efficient but more importantly, the food's wonderful. It has nice views at anytime but watching the sun set over the harbor from your table is a real treat.

The location of this restaurant is wonderful. We loved watching the sunset and the pelicans diving for fish. We had great service but were disappointed by the food which was overpriced and (apart from lobster bisque and king crab legs) underwhelming.

The outside seating was packed with customers. It was difficult to get to tables, etc. The food was good, the service was marginal (most likely due to the crowd). I would definitely return to give them another try.

We had special friends from Chile with us and I wanted to take them to a good restaurant in Santa Barbara. But the place I wanted to take them was locked behind a train that was not moving and traffic that was moving even slower....More

In general, I have lowered expectations for restaurants with views. However the Harbor was a decided exception to the rule that great views and good food/service can't coexist. We made selections from the luncheon entrée and salad sections. Both were flavorful and well presented. Service...More
