I love coming to this restaurant. It has become one of my favorite places to eat for lunch or for dinner. There are many delicious things on the menu I can never decide what to get. However, they do make it easier to try many different things by having 1 bite courses if you wish. You must try the LOBSTER! You will love this place and price.

This is the first time in my life where I refused to eat the food. I disliked it so much that I was even willing to pay for it just to leave.

My family and I arrived on the pier after a long train ride. We walked into a rather empty restaurant. What I noticed is that they place all the customers on a side visible from the pier in order to give the illusion of a busy restaurant. The staff all looked miserable. They were as nice as they could be, but there was something in their glazed over eyes the screamed "get me out of here". It was like they knew something we didn't know. My 'radar' picked up on this and I began looking around more than I typically would in hopes of some concrete evidence supporting my suspicions. The waiter took our drink orders. Upon his return with the drinks he explained how they were all out of crab. This affected 1/4 of the menu at least. He did explain that two items were still available, 'crab cakes', and a 'stuffed white fish'. I ordered both. My four children ordered the standard kid menu meals. My wife ordered the fish and chips.

When the food arrived we all stared at our plates with the enthusiasm of entering an empty dentist chair. The fish and chips were nothing more than frozen french fries and a single flat fish breaded in cornmeal. BTW the fish was frozen too. My stuffed white fish (stuffed with obvious frozen shrimp and canned crab) was about as flavorful as the packaging the frozen items came in. Worse yet, the kids macaroni was modified boxed Kraft! They simply added cheese in addition to the powdered stuff. Genius!

We asked for them to take all this back and bring us a bill. I expressed that my stomach will be filled with something other than mediocre food by a complacent staff that knows that this place will soon fall off the pier and for the first time in it's history be in the company of fresh fish.

The kitchen was occupied by three gentlemen that were by observation not the culinary craftsmen you would hope for when lobster and crab are involved.

First of all, it's not $10-20. A BLT is $12 and many items were over $25.

I've been in Santa Barbara since 1984 and have been to Moby Dick many times, every time I'm brought there I think, "Now why is it that I don't like this place?"

My boyfriend and I have breakfast here everytime we go to Santa Barbara. The service is a little slow but the food and view is worth it. Have a cup of coffee and watch the ocean.

My friends, family and I have eaten at Moby Dick's several times a year for well over 20 years and we have always been pleased with the service, the quality of the food and the cleanliness of the restaurant. The view is great too. One rather nice extra is that the chef will fill requests for a change to a menu item if possible. My favorite is mussels linguine - coming right up even tho it wasn't on the menu at the time. Menu selection and prices are reasonable, A real plus is easy parking on the wharf in front of the restaurant.

This restaurant was a cute restaurant with some history! Located right off Stearn's Wharf, there's a view of the ocean from every table. The restaurant burned completely down back in the 70s (if I'm remembering the year correctly) and was rebuilt. I visited Santa Barbara with some friends from out of town who wanted to taste seafood from CA. We chose Moby Dick's after I did some research online. We were given a basket of bread before dinner that was replenished if so desired. Both friends I was with tried the sword fish, with one ordering BBQ swordfish. He wasn't a fan of the mean, but stated he wasn't so sure he liked the combination of BBQ and swordfish. The fish alone was good. Being a vegetarian, I didn't eat the seafood, but the 4-cheese pasta was great! The prices weren't terrible, either; for the three of us, the dinner came to roughly $85.00, including tip. I'd say prices are comparible to any reasonable, non-chain seafood joint. if you're in Santa Barbara, consider stopping here!

I have never had a more wonderful experience than at Moby Dick's restaurant. The food was perfect, the service speedy and friendly, even the owner takes time to greet you at the door!! The view of the ocean is available at every table, and Frank Senatra is frequently playing in the background. I love this place!!
