    Wonderful place to bring your Dog.

    We were driving through Santa Barbra very hungry and tired it was raining and cold and we had our dog. We were prepared to sit outside because of her but when we got there we were given a table inside, we were so grateful! the food was good and the doggie menu was awesome!!!! We will come back again!

    They have a Dog Menu!

    We discovered the Brewhouse when we were tourists in Santa Barbara and now that we live here it is our go-to spot for a good meal with outdoor seating where we can bring our dogs. First, they have a dog menu and our dogs expect their steak-bits before we get our orders. Second, we've tried any number of things on the menu (salads, fish and chips, burgers, enchiladas, sandwiches) and they are all really good. We expected good beer, since it is a brewhouse, but have been continually wowed by the quality of the good. We always sit outside which is not noisy, except for the occasional train going by (it's near the station). The service is almost always excellent.

    Great Time!

    We had a great time here with our pup. We got the frozen marrow bone off the dog menu and it was a hit with Podrick. We humans enjoyed the warm goat cheese salad.

    Dog menu, friendly service AND live music!

    Had to wait a bit for outside seating on a Saturday night but worth it! Filet mignon steak bites on person and dog menu left whole family super happy. Very friendly service- cool vibe. Great drinks and mussel/clam combo, warm goat cheese salad amazing! Highly recommend this place.

    Dog menu!

    Loved this place! Patio was very dog friendly. Food and beer were great! We ordered the pups raw marrow bones so we could relax and enjoy a few beers.

    Best B-day dinner

    My parents made me take my sister along to my birthday celebration...but this place was the perfect way to cap off my birthday celebration! Fresh, deliciously seasoned chicken for me and my sis! My parents drank “adult juice” and kept talking about the great happy hour menu and prices!!! We enjoyed the nice breeze, puppy friendly atmosphere and all the dog buddies in the patio!!! I’d rate this place four paws up!!!!

    There's a doggy menu!

    This place rocks. The patio seating is spacious, the waitress brought a bowl of water as soon as we got seated and they have a great doggy menu. Food is delicious too!

    really enjoyed my burger! My husband had the fish and chips which he loved and both meals together were $26!

    Awesome for the pups and the peeps

    We loved this restaurant. The food was great and the atmosphere was fun with great live music. The first night we lucked out with parking in front so left the dogs in the car. We had been out all day so they were exhausted and happy for the break. The food was yummy. We chowed down on appetizers. The second night we walked over and did take out. The restaurant was literally around the corner from our hotel, The Beach House Inn. I took my dog and sat on the patio with several other dog owners. Easy way to meet people when you are from out of town. Part of our to-go order was 2 of the frozen marrow bones. They each came in their own little to-go box. Kept my dogs busy the rest of the night. Everything was fabulous. I wish we had a place like this in my neighborhood.

    Dog Friendly Restaurant with Dog Menu

    We took our dogs here on a Saturday night during Labor Day. We were seated right away on the patio. The restaurant has a menu for dogs and we got the hamburgers for our pups, which they loved. We also got a frozen bone marrow for dessert but our dogs didn't touch it. The reason I docked a star is because the food was nothing special and the service was average,

    Beer & Dogs 😍

    This place was awesome. They are very dog friendly, great food, and the food was excellent. Dogs are allowed on the outside patio which is a fairly decent size. They offered our dog his own water bowl and they even have a dog menu... We will definitely be coming back :)

    Loved the patio and doggie menu, but avoid busy times

    We LOVED our meal at the Brewhouse. Once we were seated. The people food is great, and I don't think our two standard poodles will ever get over the tri-tip off the doggie menu.

    The only less-than-ideal part of our evening was before we sat down. True, it was a Friday night, but we were surprised that there wasn't a better system for those of us waiting for patio tables, most of us with tri-tip-loving furry friends. We ended up creating an impromptu, very cramped dog park on the sidewalk. These days it should be possible to call or text when a table is ready. We would have taken a walk and explored the area instead.

    Forget the Kid menu-they have a dog menu

    Our first experience bringing the girls to a restaurant. We sat on a lovely patio area and they brought us water bowls and a doggie menu. The service was good. The food was good. I would definitely come back.

    Happy Pup

    Nice to have a place to take your furry friend. The first thing the wait staff did was bring our pup fresh water with our menus. They are considerate and friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable for us and our pup. They even have a "Brew-Dogs Menu" :)

    great food and very dog friendly!

    The food was delicious! Easy to bike to from out hotel and plenty of spaces to store the bikes. The hostess was very friendly and brought out a bowl of water for my pup. Other dogs and visitors were friendly too. I highly recommend the side of polenta and to finish, the peanut butter pie!

    dogs can order too

    Place is great to bring your dog. Best part... The frozen marrow bone we ordered for Frankie. Now we can all eat in peace.

    My dog loves this place and we like it too

    The waitresses here are very friendly. We loved the dog menu -- they obviously really like dogs here. The patio is smaller than I expected but that is okay. My wife and I prefer German style beers, not IPAs so popular on the West Coast, and the Brewhouse has 2 german style beers! We didn't sample our dog's chicken plate but the salmon and my wife's eggplant and goat cheese sandwhich were excellent.

    First Rate

    I wasn't sure how it'd be but there were four other dogs out on the patio. They treat your dog right and have a doggie menu. And the beer is really good too.

    Good Fdod and Drinks

    The food is really good here. A great selection on the menu, great place for a group. Inside can get loud and sometimes annoying, they do have a nice large patio with heat lamps.
