Santa Barbara Shellfish Company

230 Stearns Wharf
Santa Barbara, CA, 93109, United States
TEL: (805) 966-6676

Since 1980, Tom White has featured local shellfish at his eatery at the end of Stearn’s Wharf, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Views have remained the same, but offerings at this fish shack-designed restaurant have expanded over the past three decades. He sells oysters on the half-shell, shrimp, Dungeness crab Louie and a basic New England style clam chowder, plus more elaborate preparations like the a San Francisco-born seafood stew called cioppino. Take a seat at the bar inside or request a table on the pier to watch the sun set and enjoy a beer or glass of wine.

Insider Tip:

Add your name to clipboard hanging by the entrance (below the "230" address marker) and wait to be called in.
