Meet Us For Lunch at Stearns Wharf @Santa Barbara Shellfish Company!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

The last time we were at Stearns Wharf was with my (A) parents.  That was a long time ago.  In the meantime, a fire devasted the wharf in 1998,  and it was rebuilt to the tune of $13,500,000.

Our friend Walt of Walt Wine fame recently mentioned that he and his wife loved having lunch at the Santa Barbara Shellfish Company.  We know when Walt raves about something, we should take his advice, even in "tourist land" as he says.  Since all the outdoor seating was full, we sat inside at the bar. 

There is nothing fancy about this place, just good fresh sea food.  They have two large  tanks filled with uni/urchins and local lobster.  

We ordered the dungeness crab Louie or our main course (pictured above), and had calamari for our appetizer.. They also have two of our favorite wines Gainey Sauvignon Blanc, and Palmina Pinot Grigio.  Both are from Santa Barbabra County, and Palmina only produces wines from Italian varietals.  Both are delicious and a perfect companions to seafood.

Happy Thursday!

Hello Alexandra and Ron - the photos and your description make the scene appear "picture perfect".  I can practically feel/smell the ocean air.

It kind of reminds me of "our" oyster place along the coast when we visited Sonoma.  Regardless, you know we would both enjoy this spot too. Good food, good wine, good views - perfection.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD we thought of you both.  They had a nice selection of fresh oysters.  The outside service seating is very small, and it is a first come first serve, and then you put your name on the board.  The other side has a take-out area with seating and umbrellas on the wharf.  A

James Dray we both love Louie salads.  We often make shrimp louie for dinner, and we have missed having Dungeness crab here.  When we lived in Northern California, it was plentiful.  A

Those are nice pictures, Alexandra.  When I was a kid, we would spend a lot of time over at Princeton-by-the-Sea, about 4 miles north of Half Moon Bay.  My dad was an avid deep sea fisherman.  There was a little restaurant there that served wonderful crab or shrimp louies.  Your picture reminds me of what I took for granted back in the day.

Hi Alexandra. Lovely post! Just looking at the pics floods my mind with heartfelt memories. Santa Barbara was my home for 12 years. After leaving CA we lived in Colorado for six and then FL for 11. We've been in Utah for five years now. I miss the beautiful weather along the coast, the scenary, beaches, family and friends. It might be time for a visit!

Mary Whitaker I had no idea that you were originally in Santa Barbara.  We now have a direct flight to SLC from SBA, which has been a dream of ours and why we moved here, Delta is back!  So anytime you come out, let us know we would be happy to meet you.  A
