Beach Grill at
3765 Santa Claus Lane
Rating: 40 feet
The Beach Grill is in a very unique setting - it has nearly half an acre of grass, chairs & tables for you to enjoy the sun while you eat. I have spent all afternoon at times enjoying the weather after lunch.
For kids, there is huge sandbox full of toys. This is a VERY kid-friendly restaurant with plenty of room to run around. The actual beach and grill are divided by train tracks, so you can't walk directly to the sand from your table. It is fun to watch the train speed by a few feet from your table (see the video below). Kids love it!
The menu is extensive and delicious with a variety of meat, poultry and vegetarian choices. My favorite is the Beach Burger though sometimes I go for the turkey sandwich.
The Beach Grill at Padaro is located
off of Highway 101, between Summerland and Carpinteria. Coming from
either direction, take the Santa Claus Lane/Padaro Lane Exit.
