Dine Out
Santa Barbara is blessed with many fine restaurants. I guess we must eat out a lot here. Everyone has their gems—there is something for every taste. Here are my favorite hangouts, in no particular order. These are personal to me. If you want to know more, there are several good Web sites with information about local dining like

What you'll find: is my favorite restaurant in town. I go there for the atmosphere—casual, like being inside an Italian courtyard—and great, light Italian food. It's very reasonable, which is why you see people lined up to get in (they don't take reservations). But unless the line goes down the street, don't worry: it's big inside. Lunch time is a good time to go because you don't have to wait to get in. It's a fun restaurant.
Brophy Bros. Print E-mail
Chris's Favorite Restaurants
Brophy Bros.Cuisine: American, Seafood
Price: $10 - $20
Serving: Lunch & Dinner
Hours: Weekdays: Sun-Thu 11am-10pm, Weekends: Fri-Sat 11am-11pm
Address: Santa Barbara Harbor, Santa Barbara, California
Phone: (805) 966-4418
Web site:
What you'll find: For a nice lunch or dinner with spectacular views of the yacht harbor and the mountains, there's nothing to beat Brophy Brothers. If you walk out to the Breakwater to look at boats anchored in the marina just look up and you'll see it. They specialize in sea food. My favorite is fish and chips and oyster shooters. They have a full bar. Nice place to relax and watch the sun set after work. They don't take reservations but they give you a beeper so you can stoll along the breakwater until you are paged. Voted Santa Barbara's Best Seafood Restaurant!
Dutch Garden Restaurant Print E-mail
Chris's Favorite Restaurants
Dutch Garden RestaurantCuisine: German
Hours: Wed-Sat 11am-8pm
Address: 4203 State St, Santa Barbara, California
Phone: (805) 967-4911
What you'll find: First I have to explain that the food is great here. But it's kind of funky, in a charming way. Hearty German food and great roast beef sandwiches. They have a classic beer garden and a cozy inside dining room. It's been around since 1926 and I think it's Santa Barbara's best kept secret. Wonderful wurst. Try the wienerschnitzel and a glass of beer.

Address: 702 Anacapa St, Santa Barbara, California
Phone: (805) 962-4416
What you'll find: This is another one of my favorite restaurants. The setting is a refurbished, formerly Mexican, café with an outdoor patio and indoor casual dining. Nice bar. Good art collection. Lots of locals here. They have a lot of great food, and I recommend it all, but . . . they have the best hamburger in town, hands down. I like the Paradise Burger with extra sauce. They also have one of the best wine lists around.

What you'll find: I hang out here for breakfast. Classic bakery, good coffee, pastries and bread. The specialty is poached eggs. They are open for lunch too. Come here, have a cup of coffee, a roll, and read the paper.
Let Chris Casebeer's clients tell you why he's been a top Santa Barbara broker for over 30 years.
“With few homes to look at within our price range, we started to feel this was a message for us to quit our search for a home. Chris had e-mailed us a note that said, 'There are no homes out there today, but that doesn't mean we should lose hope. Instead we must sit quietly and chant the words,”
-Scott Wiener
