Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach: Santa Barbara

Another 10/10 restaurant to review in Santa Barbara is Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach; a seafood house located just steps away from the sand. Boathouse prides itself on using the best quality ingredients; always fresh and of the highest quality.

My party of two came here for a dinner service on a weekend right around sunset. Needless to say, the restaurant was packed, and we were put on a 45 minute wait. However, the waiting location couldn’t have been more perfect. Hendry’s beach is secluded between 2 cliffs, and is quite small. It’s a dog friendly beach, which was the best part! Many people were also waiting for tables, going for short walks on the beach, or just watching the dogs run around.

After about 45 minutes we were sat. They have an indoor area and outdoor patio, and we chose to sit inside right alongside the glass. It was nice to have the warmth, but also the view. To eat, I ordered the Boathouse Seafood Pasta which was $29. It was absolutely delicious and I would definitely order again. It was extremely creamy, and cheesy, but this balanced out with the seafood flavors. It was a larger portion too, so I got to take it home and enjoy the next day as well. At this restaurant, I feel like you are paying for the view, and atmosphere as well, and overall I felt it was worth it.

I would recommend Santa Barbara visitors to Boathouse at Hendry’s Beach. It’s a great dining atmosphere and beautiful views of the beach. I can’t remember if you can make reservations, but if so, I would highly recommend.
