As always, the lobster bisque and crab cake hash were amazing. Excellent service.
Excellent as always. From the service to the food to the ambiance! Thank you!
We had a real nice dinner at Chuck’s waterfront. I had this sirloin steak and mashed potatoes and vegetables was delicious my husband had the halibut and loved it.
Perfect evening at Chuck’s Waterfront Grill. Our favorite spot for dining on the Harbor in SB. Beautiful view of the boats, coast & mountains. We were fortunate to have an outside table overlooking the water just as the sun set. Enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak, lobster bisque & salad, my friend ordered the seafood pasta & loved it. Food & service outstanding with a killer view. Never disappoints.
Excellent food ! Friendly accommodating staff. Reasonable prices. Can't ask for more.
Great time. Nice weather on the outside patio. Our server was great. We enjoyed it all
Great food & drink with kids & grandkids...fun for all!
Hostess seated us outside at a table prepared with place settings and napkins yet table was filthy and we had to request to get it wiped off...when bus boy addresses cleaning he literally wiped table around all place setting never moving anything. DISGUSTING...!!!
Attention to patrons needs while seated and after delivery of food was poor. Literally had to stand up and ask for things a 2nd and 3rd time that were previously asked for earlier i.e water, straws, napkins, salt pepper, ice, etc...
Although, server's were polite in nature; taking care of the patrons that supply jobs for them was NOT a priority. Food was cold or lukewarm at best.
Picture setting of harbor & view of Santa Barbara. Never rushed. My favorite is The Calamari!
Was just in town overnight and had a very nice dinner overlooking the harbor. Food was good and service was great. I would definitely go back if in the harbor area again.
Food was great but horrible service. We waited a half hour just to get our drink order taken and had to ask if we had a waiter assigned to our table before we got attended too. Still terrible service after that but the busboys we great
We were visiting Santa Barbara for a wedding but wanting a nice dining experience by the water. The staff were all nice and it was not a noisy restaurant. Overall very happy with our night there and our food!
Overall it was a great experience and would have gotten 5 stars if they updated their menus online and at the restaurant. My wife is a vegetarian and found 2 dishes she would pick from when we went. We realized our menus were slightly different because hers had some extra dishes on it, which happened to be one she wanted. Came to find out her menu was old and the dishes she wanted were no longer available. Waiter said he would check if they had some vegetarian ravioli left and it turned out they did after he ‘checked’. The waiter then returned a few mins later saying the chef actually looked and they do not have the vegetarian ravioli. So she had to settle for a Caesar salad, bread, and fries. Which they forgot to bring her fries and we had to ask about them. The waiter also spilled her wine all over my leg and the guys jacket at the table next to ours, but it was an accident and he covered the cost of our dessert, which was amazing! I had the filet and it was perfect, I recommend Chuck’s but make sure you are looking at their updated menu when looking online first.
One doesn't go to the Waterfront Grill for great food, but rather for its location and friendly, casual vibe. Our dinner exactly met our expectations--fairly simply prepared food served by a friendly waitstaff while we dined on the deck overlooking the harbor. The price was reflective of the experience--I would rate it a good value for what it is. Don't go expecting gourmet, but relax and enjoy the vibe.
Food and atmosphere were great along with attentive service.
We are locals and eat here a lot.
Unfortunately, we had a new server. Things were not served that we ordered and we reordered and it took some time. It seems like he was ignoring us. The food was good when we received them.
We will go again and hope the server gets more training time.
From start to finish, the service was horrible. We had reserved an outdoor table, which we did not get. We asked for bread three times before we received it mid way through our meal. The baked potato that cost an additional $5 wasn’t given until we reminded them several times and it was delivered at the end of the meal. No attempt to apologize or make up for the service issues was attempted. The food was good, but not worth the service issues.
Food was very good; outdoor eating was very pleasant; service was very attentive.
Great service & food....great atmosphere
Outside seating was delightful...hard to find “Chuck’s” sign tho, only on a small reception stand.
Fantastic wonderful food and very friendly and smiling staff. Brillant. We went there 3 times for dinner. Lovede it.
Excellent burger or steak. Clam chowder is perfect. Service as well
We love eating at this restaurant on the harbor. Great food and service.
Amazing food and service!
2nd time my meat was over cooked. will order fish from now on.
Fun spot great food great view is the hArbor and terrific service
We had booked our table for 8.45pm. We arrived at 8.53. The waiter told us there was a problem and we should wait for the manager. This one told us after 5 minutes that restaurant was closing... nicely we were walked out.
Dont go !
Where else could you get the town's best steaks (thanks, Chucks) AND the town's best fish (thanks, WATERFRONT) in one restaurant? Friendliness of staff (especially Alvin) is much appreciated, too. We love this place!
Awesome as always. Still getting used to the new style of food. Really miss the Chuck’s salad bowl on the menu and not sure we care for the teriyaki sauce so largely present on the ribeye. Definitely have to remember to ask for rice instead of potatoes because we always miss our rice!
Great place for dinner. Weather was excellent
The view was beautiful but this is a tourist restaurant. Meaning they do not hire professional staff and don’t pay attention to the food. The sea bass was over cooked. Salmon over cooked. Boring steamed veggies are the only side veggie options. I’ll never go back.
Had an excellent sirloin - very tender and cooked perfectly. Service was quite attentive and friendly.
Great views of the harbor. See Bass was delicious.
Over priced, all item come separately. Nothing comes with the main course. Salad, soup, or potato extra. We were looking for something special to start our vacation off, but we were both disappointed. We don't mind paying for great food. This just fell short.
Next best thing to owning a boat in the marina is dinner at the Waterfront Grill. I had the trout, chilled white wine, hot rolls. All delicious and served nicely.
Enjoyable lunch with a tasty menu although limited in choices.
Love pretty much everything about Chucks Waterfront Grill! The view of the boats, the Teriyaki steak(my favorite), the service(Simon is great) all great! Only downfall is they used to have the best artichokes in town but last couple of times have been tough, skimpy and lack flavor. Too bad because I used to love them. Probably won’t order them again😔!
The hostess sat us in the back of the patio in the sun, we asked to be moved to one of the many tables in the shade, she refused saying that they were all taken and they would tilt the umbrella, but it didn’t work. When we left the tables that were “taken” were still empty.
Great tasting food, had fish. Service was just OK.
Yummy meal, great view, and even better service! They no longer had the wine we ordered and the server suggested another bottle. It was perfect and LESS than the one we had originally asked for.
