Santa Barbara Shellfish Company was established in 1980 as a buying station for local Santa Barbara shellfish and fish and a place to sell crab. Over the years we've learned how to serve shellfish from recipes my family and I have appreciated and interpreted from our fishermen friends along the many coasts that we have traveled.
Best seafood spot to hit if you’re on the Santa Bárbara pier. You better hurry too cause it will get full. First time trying sea urchin here and it was good. Thought it would be different but it kinda melts in your mouth. Biggest thing to take away from this place is that the staff is great and it’s the freshest seafood around. Everything was great and I’m not a big seafood guy. It’s a must stop if you’re in Santa Bárbara.
We really wanted to eat crab and lobster, we enjoyed both. It is a curious and authentic place.
Excellent place and very good food, crab, sea urchin and lobster. Very good!
Best Lobster Bisque I've ever had in my life. Drove 4hrs to eat lunch with my husband for Valentine's and the food and service never disappoint. My husband isn't a picky eater but certainly hates celery and still devoured the entire lobster roll. Fresh and delicious!!!
Outside seating in a cold night may seem scary but if you get one of their heated outdoor booths it’s great! We had a lobster roll and lobster tacos. Served really hot and perfect. Great night.
