Brophy Brothers

119 Harbor Way, Santa Barbara, CA - (805) 966-4418
Posted By David Silver on 10/21/2008 3:08:00 PM
I found Brophy Brothers on Santa Barbara's website under the category for best seafood and clam chowder. I have had excellent clam chowder previously, but this was the best I have ever had thus far. You can have the chowder as a meal in itself, or as an appetizer.

The restaurant has both upstairs and downstairs dining. Upstairs is their general dining area, with a great view of the Santa Barbara Harbor. Downstairs is more of a bar. Normally the upstairs dining area has a wait, so if you don't mind waiting, the bar is just as nice.

Although I highly recommend their clam chowder, the menu does contain many other items, ranging from freshly caught fish to burgers and fries. Everything is made-to-order.

The sourdough bread is delivered to the table piping hot. We used it to mop up the rest of the clam chowder.

The hot combo appetizer plate includes baked clams, steamed clams, steamed mussels, oysters Rockefeller, and beer-boiled shrimp. Everything is fresh and delicious.

The view from Brophy Brothers shows the marina with the mountains in the background.
