I've read and searched here for more info on this place. I'm coming up with real love, or real hate for this place in Santa Barbara.
My mother wants to eat here for her b-day on July 11th. Mainly for the view, as she has very fond memories of eating here with her best friend. My Mom is not a foodie. She likes simple, but good food. (i'm the family weirdo who eats sushi! *gasp!*)
I called the Harbor restaurant today to inquire about "catch of the day" specials, and the hostess told me "We actually don't serve specials like that, but ALL of our fish is fresh"
WHAT? Can anyone confirm this, who has eaten there? I'm not a food snob, but it seems really counter-intuative to eat fish that's not caught locally, while eating on a pier!? As long as the food is decent to good, i'll be great, as this is all about making Mom happy.
I've read horrid things about the service there, and that's making me a bit wary.
