After a successful day of shopping the 4th of July weekend sales up and down State St. (bought my first fedora at Urban AND my first designer purchase – flats from Betsey!!), my parents and I decided to fuel up at Brophy Bros located right on the Santa Barbara harbor.
Coming from the San Francisco Bay Area, you could say we are sort of seafood snobs. We were quite dissapointed that they had run out of oysters. Like really? The ceviche was OK – the fish was not chunky and its greyish hue was a little off putting.
I will say that the rest of the dishes were excellent. Super creamy clam chowdah. Plump shrimp with hearty portions.
I tend to only eat half my meal when I go out (I love me some leftovers!) but unfortunately our hotel room did not have a mini fridge. I hate wasting food. I did bring it to go but seafood, especially shrimp spoils fast. If you’re in town I’d definitely recommend coming here to dine by the sea. See Brophy Bros on Yelp.
