Santa Barbara and the Central Coast Restaurants



Splash Café

Splash Café Review

Folks stand in line down the block for clam chowder served in a sourdough bread bowl at this wildly popular seafood stand. You can also order beach food such as fresh steamed clams, burgers, and fried calamari at the counter (no table service). The grimy, cramped, but cheery hole-in-the-wall is open daily for lunch and dinner (plus a rock-bottom basic breakfast), but closes early on weekday evenings during low season.
