This is the place where all of Santa Barbara comes eventually. They have a full menu-look for the tri-tip specials-and other steak specials. Friendly waitresses who have been here for many years. Good for groups as well.

Try a meal at Harry's when you are in town. They have limited eating outside, but the large tufted booths will allow the whole family to sit together.

They have great sandwiches, ample drinks and a good kid's menu. Something for everyone.

It was a sad day for this native Santa Barbaran to return for a holiday visit and take the family to Harry's, a Santa Barbara Institution on the restaurant scene. Known for decades for their great burgers, steaks, generous drinks and lively, rambunctious atmosphere and wait staff with authentic ?What?ll it be honey? attitude; the place is now on life support. A party of 6 went for lunch, and although the place was not packed like days of old, we waited for 25 minutes for a table, then another 15 for our waiter, one of two for the entire room to take our order. He was flustered and struggling along and we took pity on him because his drawers were so droopy we wanted to collectively avoid further embarrassment for him! When our food arrived the burgers were still pretty good, and the fries almost hot. The blue cheese dressing was rich and creamy just as I remembered from all those years of Fiesta Rodeo parties at Harry?s. Bottom line is the food is not what it was but still good; and it feels more like any other average diner. We miss ya Harry!

Pros: Probably good for a non fast food burger

Cons: Lifeless and depressing ambiance

Editorial from

Passersby would never guess that the corner spot of a nondescript strip mall on Upper State Street is home to one of Santa Barbara's most storied restaurants. Every town has its own version of Harry's, a place where locals rendezvous over…
