After soaking in the TRB’s Santa Barbara mission architecture, you’ll enter and be greeted by a triple arched Brunswick mahogany bar. Large bowls of colorful citrus for making cocktails sit atop a twenty-foot long bar perfect for grabbing a glass of wine or a bite to eat. As you explore further towards the display kitchen, you enter our lounge, also referred to as the wine library. Knotted wood shelves display our wines, divided up by wine region. Windows surround the North side of the dining room, allowing our guests to gaze out onto the fountain in our courtyard. I describe the décor as thoughtful and collective, creating little vignettes for dining areas. We offer two separate outdoor dining experiences: our courtyard with full service and our front porch great for appetizers, drinks and lounging.

The staff very easily rescheduled when we had to make a change. We sat at a great table outside, with our own heat lamp. Ryan, our server is awesome. Fast, professional, gives great recommendations, and is just fun to talk to. The food, firecracker shrimp, Simmzy burger, and lobster raviolis was outstanding, as always. We’ll be back.

Wonderful meal! We were there for my daughter's 25th birthday and brought a cake. The waiter kept it refrigerated and brought it out with a lit candle.

It was a nice day, we had requested a fairly decent table, we were sat in the sun so we did get hot after a while since we had no tent/shade to cover us. The brunch menu was okay, we really enjoyed the eggplant hummus. The blueberry biscuits weren’t as sweet as I thought they’d be. The frittata was good & the crispy potatoes it came with were good too. The hash was flavorful but my husband didn’t care for the potatoes it came with because there was too much sauce in his opinion. Overall we were satisfied, but we probably will stick to items we ordered before

The Tin Roof is our go-to, best restaurant in town. Always superior quality and well-sourced fresh food. Love the spicy tuna rolls, the brussel sprouts, salads and lasagna. Actually there is nothing mediocre or lackluster--everything delicious every time!
Oh and the firecracker shrimp is awesome! Love the cocktails, and the wine list.

Can I just say how excited and grateful I am to be back inside of a restaurant? We celebrated my birthday dinner here and we had the 4top table next to the kitchen. It was SO great to be back at Tin Roof. It's our go-to date night restaurant. While our favorite meal is the Lamb Pappardelle, this time we switched it up with our server's recommendation of the Fish & Chips. OMG. AMAZING! Best Fish & Chips I've had in a very long time. The Lingcod was scrumptious and it was paired nicely with the shoestring french fries and napa cabbage slaw. It's my newest favorite dish! Just might have to have that now on instead of the Lamb. Thanks for another great evening out, Tin Roof. See you soon!

Glad restaurants are opening up again. But we did have to wait 35 mins after our reservation time to get a table. They seemed reluctant to turn over tables so there was a big crowd waiting. Once we were seated service was terrific.

We are long time fans, have been picking up food and dining in the patio when available (and when the road was open). That said, our Friday night experience was special. So good to see inside and outside seating at maximum capacity. The vibe was warm and friendly. Staff was welcoming. Food and drink were perfect and service was spot on.
To top it off, we sat in the garden surrounded on 3 sided by a tansparent tent complete with a sparkling chandelier. It was a wonderful homecoming. Congrats to the entire team for the skillful restart. While other restaurants are blaming Covid for sloppy service and spotty food, Tin Roof is up and running without a fault. Special Kudos to Aaron for his tireless efforts during the past year.

what a great set up even with the restrictions in place. Sat on the outside terrace area by the fountain, very nicely spaced and had Scott as a server - just excellent knowledge of the menu, the area, super social and really helped our first experience there. Major bonus for us - Dog friendly patio space :)

Always reliable. Food was great. Salmon with avocado had crispy skin just as I like it. Portion was decent, not too much or too little. My husband’s steak and frites also delicious. Perfectly medium and you could cut with regular knife like butter. Fries were my favorite style shoestring and crispy. House salad also good.

Very friendly staff, great food, and quick service. Only thing was they sat us at a fire pit table which would have been better if we were just having drinks. But eating dinner was a little awkward .

We understand that our reservation for very late in the evening but our food was cold and they brought our appetizers and meals out at the same time because the kitchen was about to close. Kind of sullied the experience. But we love Tin Roof so we’ll be back, but never so late in the evening.
