High Sierra Grill Airplane Patio

Santa Barbara, California, United States


Elephant Bar, a basic sports bar restaurant, has a patio outside with a close-up view of the airport! Inside, it's gorgeous with mirrors and glass and brass everywhere. Outside, on sunny days and warm evenings, it's even better, with tropical plants and palms and gothic lampposts. Because the back patio is south-facing, it's often warm (which is important if you want to sit outside in Santa Barbara). Kids especially have fun because they can watch the private planes taking off from Santa Barbara Airport while sitting on grassy hills by the tables. After your meal, kids love to run around on the grassy hills in front of the restaurant too. Sunsets are super nice here, with the pink light catching the mountain views. It's more for the pretty atmosphere that you go because the food, while tasty, is not very high quality. There is live music on the patio Saturdays 7-10pm and Sundays 3-6pm in spring, summer, and early fall. After your meal, go for a stroll or a play on the playground by the large musical chimes at Goleta Beach Park.
