Is there a more charming beachfront restaurant location in Santa Barbara County? We don't think so. Overlooking Santa Claus beach, a local favorite, the Padaro Beach Grill boasts a park-like outdoor dining room that's ideal for day dates and impromptu gatherings. Enjoy fresh salads, savory burgers and sinfully rich milkshakes that are blended by hand only after you place your order. A large sandbox encourages the kiddos to play while grown-ups indulge in refreshing beers and local wines. Try the shrimp salad or the prime burger. Live bands have been known to play on the weekends. Free (but often crowded) parking right out front.
