Santa Barbara Shellfish Company

“That great little crab place on the wharf”

Initially established in 1979 as a buying station for local lobster and abalone, Santa Barbara Shellfish has evolved into the area expert when it comes to local crustaceans, shrimp, and other seafood specialties. A very special dining experience—it doesn’t get any fresher!

Also please visit our premium restaurant, the FisHouse, located 500 meters east of Stearns Wharf on Cabrillo Blvd. There we serve all varieties of fish and seafoods, and have a wider choice of regional wines.
