Brunch at the Beach in Santa Barbara

I typically expect a restaurant with an amazing view to serve mediocre food at best. The Boathouse at Hendry's Beach is a pleasantly surprising exception. They care about everything they serve. I have enjoyed several wonderful meals at this extraordinary spot right on the beach. Sitting on their patio inches from the sand is a fantastic way to begin your day. Their weekend brunch is very good. Dinner here is delicious. They specialize in seafood and their fish is fresh and delicious. They feature locally sourced seafood as well as several types of fish flown in fresh from Hawaii. Their cioppino is very god as well as the chowder, and fresh salads. If you are not a fan of seafood there are meat and vegetarian options on the menu as well.

They also own The Santa Barbara FisHouse and S.B. Shellfish Company on the pier. I never visit Santa Barbara without enjoing a meal at one or two of these restaurants. I wish we had something comparable in L. A.
