Went in there just for ice cream. Don't do it. Worst ice cream I have had I years. Crystallized and tasteless - but not cheap

This is a simple grill on hard concrete with not so great plastic tables and chairs, but I LOVE it! The food is better than you might expect from a beach grill, and it is about the only reasonably priced waterfront spot in Santa Barbara...More
