“Great "Neighborhood" joint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Seems like I always end up at this place when I'm in Santa Barbara and I always have a good time. If you're looking for a good late-night local bar that is not filled with tourists to watch sports, play pool, ping pong or foosball, this is for you. It is very casual and off the beaten path of State Street.

“Fun local bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We were on our way to a brewery and this place was next door. We decided to check out the local place and were so very glad we did! Met some wonderful people there and the food was excellent. I wish we would have come across this place before we went to one of the new, trendy places that charge an arm and a leg and you still leave hungry!!

“A bit of a "dive"; popular with college students.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

They have plenty of activities - ping pong, pool, etc. The beer pong area is pretty dirty and "divey", but it was popular with local college-age people. Average drinks. One BIG warning: filthy bathrooms.

“Good beer and food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Really a bar with food. They brew their own beer and have a nice selection. Beer by the pitcher available. Live music too. Go for the bar food you can eat with your fingers and hands.
