    Made reservation for Sunday 5pm to celebrate my brother's b'day. We arrived 4:45pm, 15 minutes before opening. The hostess noticed my elderly mother using a walker and told us to take any table anywhere we'd like in the dining room. She returned with menus and a person setting up the restaurant came over with water. With 10 minutes still to go until they open, our server Alvin appeared. He had an infectious smile and personality. His dining suggestions were spot-on. The calamari appetizer was incredible. Most calamari can be chewy, this appetizer was like eating butter. Mom had the chowder, and Alvin said the two best dishes were halibut and ahi. My brother took one and I the other. Delicious! For dessert, the mud pie made Cheesecake Factory portions seem small. Perfect for 4.

    Besides the obviously wonderful food, the staff made our visit. From the hostess who was mindful of mom, to manager Kevin coming by our table a couple times, to Alvin's service, we could not ask for more. This restaurant, and Endless Summer bar upstairs, should be high on anyone's list not just for the food and staff, but for the ambience as well.

    Kind of an absolute gem overlooking the Santa Barbara harbor- your lucky if you get the bar still spots facing the ocean. They make pina coladas that are so tasty-you will want 2. Chips and salsa is a great combination and they provide an adequate amount of sauce for their price. It's a great environment to bring your friends to or even just to enjoy yourself on a beautiful fun day.

    I ate here for lunch with a group of four. The food was very good. The outdoor seating provided a great view of the harbor, as well as passers-by. We had the Seafood Louie salad and thought it was very good, though the dressing was a bit thick. Next time I would ask for it on the side. I would recommend this restaurant and eat there again.

    Menu is available online. We were seated immediately inside at our reservation time. It was quieter and more intimate. Nautical decor with a touch of Hawaiian. The freshly made beet salad couldn't be more delicious and the hamburger was cooked perfectly.

    We came here after trying to go to another restaurant. We were starving and had just paid for parking so we weren't leaving! The food was excellent (I had tuna poke and it was delicious, my husband had fish and chips with some really fresh and yummy cole slaw and my daughter had a breakfast burrito that was huge!) Service was friendly and quick. We sat out back on the roof patio and watched the boats come and go. Would definitely recommend!

    Growing up in SB, & raising my kids here, we are so happy to have Chuck's Waterfront and Endless Summer. We love the staff who make us and our kids feel at home. The food is great and priced right, whether you want to hang upstairs with the best views of SB or downstairs where the atmosphere is so comfortable. This awesome restaurant supports our local schools; what an amazing company!! Kevin is an awesome manager and the customer service is great! Highly recommend this restaurant for any size group and definitely try the halibut or Baja fish tacos; the best in town!!

    Ate here on a whim and ended up having our best meal so far on our Cali tour. Three clean plates is more than enough to rate the food as great, fish taco’s and two burger dishes plus two great desserts.Lovely harbour view from the upstairs patio with a really great waitress made the experience one that will linger for a long time in my memory. Highly recommend Endless Summer if close to Santa Barbara.

    My husband and I are locals and we really enjoy coming here to chill and to have a drink and an appetizer. They have great happy hour specials! (My favorite is the short-rib quesadilla) And if you are looking for a really good burger, look no further. You must also try the Mai-Tai!
    This is the first place we think of to take our out-of-town guests... the location is fantastic, with a beautiful view of the harbor, the staff is great, super friendly and attentive, and the food is pretty good too. Highly reccommend!

    Thank you so much for making it so easy to host our baby fiesta! The booking process was very easy and Kaity was responsive and gave us lots of options for space/menu selections. When we arrived, the set up was done with plenty of time for us to put our party touches on it and the staff helped us out...stringing up paper banners and more. The food was outstanding (especially the churros!) and the service was amazing! They were attentive and kept checking in with me throughout the event. We were taken very well care of by the Endless Summer crew and would highly recommend it to others.
