Boathouse, Hendry's Beach
It's right on the beach!
My favorite burger is the Kobe "happy hour" burger at the Boathouse.
You're right, JR. The Boathouse has one of the best happy hours in Santa Barbara. And the view can't be beat!
In addition to the Kobe Cheeseburger, delicious happy hour food includes:
- Fried Calamari
- Pulled-Pork Sliders with Gouda
- Beer-Steamed Clams
- Seared Ahi Tuna
- New England Clam Chowder with salad
Each for just $6.95!
Draft beer costs $3.00, house wine costs $4.00, and well drinks, margaritas and call wine is just $5.00.
Sunday through Thursday, happy hour runs from 3-6 pm AND 8 pm - closing! Friday, it's just 8 pm - closing and Saturday there is no happy hour.
Happy hour is crowded and lively. This is miles from tourist central and a real locals' favorite kind of place.
You don't have to wait for happy hour, though. The Boathouse opens at 7:30 am for breakfast and serves delicious, high-quality food all day long.
It can be crowded, especially during happy hour. Reservations are recommended - call 805-898-2628.
You'll find the Boathouse at 2981 1/2 Cliff Drive (map it
) at Arroyo Burro (a.k.a. Hendry's) Beach. It's definitely worth the trip!
