The Nichols brothers, Matt & Jeff, grew up in Ames, Iowa where their love of cooking, good food and a sense of family and community was nurtured.

The 2013 opening of their second Santa Barbara Wine Country restaurant, Brothers Restaurant at the Red Barn in Santa Ynez, allows them to offer visitors and locals alike great food, wine and hospitality. The brothers strive to have legendary service, innovative cuisine, and a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere that causes you to return time and again.

As chefs, the brothers continue to experiment with new dishes and cuisine, but always with that “from scratch”, homemade element. Fresh ingredients from local producers, a wine list that showcases the region’s award-winning wines and a comfortable and historically interesting atmosphere that takes you back to the romance of the old west. They want you to feel at home, and experience all the best of Santa Barbara’s Wine Country.

Very surprised when we walked in. Nicer than what we expected because of the name barn. Excellent service and food. Prime rib better than Lawrys in Los Angeles. Husband had the pork chop and he said it was delicious.

Very good food. I had the Filet and my wife had the Scallops special. Nice place in the heart of Santa Ynez. Andrea was very attentive and pleasant, even with having a fair number of tables to look after. Definitely worth a visit.

Another fantastic meal and evening at The Brother's Red Barn, this time for our 44th anniversary. Diane took such good care of us. We dined with good friends, all starting with delicious hearts of romaine salad ( split them, they are huge ), my husband and I having pork chops ( amazing as always! ), our friends loving their rib eye steak, and trout.
We are so fortunate to have this jewel of a restaurant in our Valley! Thank you for such a special evening!

Outstanding food, if you're into wine do take your own bottle and pay the $20 corkage which is high for the S.Y. Valley, but worth it when you see the bottle prices on the wine list, and split a salad as they are easily enough for two people and have a great meal.

The 12oz Prime Rib was the best I’ve ever had.

After sharing the pear/walnut green salad, we had prime rib and salmon dishes and both were outstanding with popping flavors and freshness second to none. Also had a bottle of Lucas and Lewellen Malbec wine, an excellent compliment to the meal. Finished off with a creme brulee, excellent friendly wait service from Jim. Our first dinner experience here could not have been any better, thank you.
