Moby Dick has been a Santa Barbara tradition for at least 40 years. Our goal is to provide fresh food, great service and spectacular views. We have a wonderful banquet room that accommodates up to 80 people for meetings, parties, etc. We also have an outdoor cocktail patio and the Sunset Room which is a perfect setting for an evening meal. Here at Moby Dick there is always something exciting going on – big waves, surfers, sailboat races, visiting whales, and dolphins. If you are a local and you’ve never been here before, please give us a try. It’s our pleasure to welcome you to a fun and friendly dining experience that will keep you coming back for years to come.

Stearns Wharf was completed in 1872. Over the next 100 years, the wharf went through many phases. Storms and economic disasters buffeted the wharf, but it survived. A plan developed in 1979 by the city of Santa Barbara resulted in the Wharf and waterfront transformation into a people oriented park with lots of open space for do-it-yourself entertainment, fishing, strolling, and a beautiful ocean view.
