When in the mood for something different and comforting, I head to Dargan's. Try the Mushroom soup and the Shepard's Pie! And of coarse a pint of Irish Beer!

Music is the main reason to visit Dargan's. Thurs night group is the best. The food is not the reason for a visit. The service is outstanding and of course, the Guinness is cold and good. Yes, please visit.

I went to Dargan's for the UCSB band's concert and a few drinks. Great atmosphere and great Irish beer! The bartenders were quick and friendly. I would recommend this for a late night bar.

The menu never changes.Typical Irish Bar food. Usually tasty, but the quality and freshness of the food can be problematic. The restaurant should be commended for teaming up with the Museum of Natural History for the Science Pub, a monthly in-restaurant lecture series that usually...More
