Reviews by the General Public

I love it
Reviewer: jman from Santa Barbara, CA
Sad to see such venom in these reviews. Really, Sam is life that bad for you? You have my sympathy.. As for me, I always try to find a reason to stop and get a Stacky's burger and I always get decent food and service.

They really need to close
Reviewer: Sam from Santa Barbara, CA
What was once a decent place is now a remnant of the past. Whether its the tired, incredibly dirty interior, or the horrible food, Stacky's is just plain terrible. The food is neither fresh nor delicious. It tastes like something you'd find in a cafeteria in some wayward college dorm... Sysco type of canned and processed everything. Heck, they cant even make a decent breakfast sandwich let a lone a good burger. (go across the street or to Tinkers) It would do Summerland and the rest of the area a great service if Stacky's simply closed. I know the oldtimers like this place but that's due to nostalgia, not taste. Avoid it and help accelerate the demise of a place 10 years past its expiration date.

Nice Campy Fish and Chips place
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
The theme is campy fish and chips. Food is not bad in fact everything I sampled was good including fish(three different varieties you can get for the fish n chips), pork pulled sandwich and burger. Only issue was it seemed expensive, never really saw the price of my drink, maybe that was it but you are in touristy Summerland. Good place to take kids for the themes too. Server was nice there. I can't really recommend over Summerland Beach Café but can over Tinker's. I have yet to try Nugget across the street but have been underwhelmed at their Goleta one. Maybe the Summerland(original one) is better.

Stay away from Stacky's, it's not good!
Reviewer: Brent from Santa Barbara, CA
I read the reviews here that said the Fish and Chips were good. Let me tell you the were the WORST fish/chips I've ever had. I ordered the 3 piece Cod. Super greesy, and very small. Couldn't eat it. Next they couldn't even serve fresh made fries. The entire meal was CRAP. Never ever will I set foot in that CRAPPY place.

YUMMY! YUMMY! This is the place for food & service.

The 'fish & chips' were delicious!!! Squeeze on the lemon, splash on the malt vinegar and your mouth will thank you...but beware-you'll be hungry for them again and again and if you don't live in the area you'll have a long trip over and over....this was our first time and we now have a problem! The inside is decorated very appropriately-fishing gear here and there and everywhere. The service was impeccable because the people who work there are caring and concerned about their clientele.

Fun place . Fast service . Saw Steve Martin an drew berymore
Reviewer: Jessica a Smith from Santa Barbara, CA
Just really fun after the beach . Dogs outside. Just all around fun place to be . Owner Mikey is a cool guy . Will come back.

Cute Place to Take the Kids
Reviewer: Dee from Southwest, AZ
Stacky's is a nice little restaurant for a quick bite. Can eat indoors or outside. Ordered the halibut sandwich which I found to be very good and tasty, but the choc malt was flat. Perhaps it was an off day for that? Spouse ordered a different kind of fish sandwich than mine and found it to be awful. Fun place to take the kids, cute outdoorsy whimsey decorated in fish nets, boat and oars. You get the picture.

Reviewer: Katie from Santa Barbara, CA
Very large menu! everything is very good so it makes it even harder to choose! Friendly service. Cold Beer. Feels like your in the ocean! layed back, Great food! Fast and has great ice cream! my favorite is the "Griller." which is onion, mushroom, bell-peppers, turkey and ham all grilled together on sourdough bread. Delicious! they can also substitute the bun/bread for a lettuce wrap for people who are gluten intollerant! my dads favorite is the "Rib Tips n Chips" also the "Fish n Chips" are very very good! ok priced. good location! lived in summerland for 13 years and still my favorite place to go!!

I love this place
Reviewer: Scot from Los Angeles, CA
I attended school in Santa Barbara from 1994 to 1997. That was when I discovered Stacky's. My friends and I frequented the place. I used to take family there when they came for a visit. Now I'm in L.A. but every time I visit S.B. I stop by Stacky's. Wow, I guess it's been 15 years now. The food is always consistent, always good. My favorite is the Top O' Valencia sandwich with an order of fries.

over it
Reviewer: Jimmy Blanks from Summerland, CA
I haven't had anything decent from this place except the breakfast burritos. The burritos aren't even that great. Pretty expensive. I guess this place is still in business because of the tourists. They seem to use a lot of costco premade food. The hamburgers are definitely from costco.

Returning for seconds
Reviewer: Elizabeth from SB
Tried the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and it was pretty good. Fun place for a fast lunch. Like the fries too.

perhaps they should try harder
Reviewer: Michael G from Santa Barbara, CA
Considering how long this place has been in business, I would think they could get a burger right. The burgers were over cooked and the cheese was wrong. When I informed them of this issue, they removed the melted cheese and replaced it with a cold slice. Again, back to the counter for a fix. By the time we got our burgers, they were destroyed with torn bread, sloppy toppings and the knowledge that these burgers went from kitchen to table and back 3 times. The final straw was the kid tossing our food on the table with a look of contempt on his face as if we were the problem, not their inability to take simple orders. With Tinkers and The Nugget right there, we will probably not go back.
