230 STEARNS WHARF
SANTA BARBARA, CA 93101
Hungry patrons crowd the casual and eventful restaurant where hefty crab and lobster are dropped into boiling cauldrons while award-winning chefs frantically work the open kitchen serving up signature dishes that rival any four star restaurant. The postcard views of the glistening Pacific and nearby Channel Islands are equally intoxicating. The Shellfish Company’s extraordinary menu includes luscious crab cakes – one of their specialties that has been sought after and until now a well kept family secret; New England style clam chowder and a hearty Italian Cioppino served in fresh bread bowls; jumbo shrimp, mussels, scallops and market squid sautéed in white wine, garlic and herbs; marvelous lobster tacos served with homemade salsa; and a kaleidoscope of spectacular oyster dishes from the best cold water oysters served on the half shell, to Oyster Luckyfeller (their version of the timeless favorite Oyster Rockefeller) and mouth watering colossal-size Oyster Poor Boys.
