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.
