Had lunch during the week with a high school friend. The décor was very classy inside & comfortable outside. Beautiful day so we chose outside dining. The menu had some fun descriptions for our favorite lunch items. My wife & school friend had the chicken club & I had the pork sandwich. My wife's first comment was "taste this Chibadda bread"! I had the same experience with my sandwich roll. Our lunch was unquestionably one of the best we have had. The owner, Jessica, visited our table & the servers were great also. We will be back again to try dinner. Parking was a bit of a challenge but it is worth any inconvenience. This place is a hidden gem for the out of town crowd but apparently well known by the Carpenterian's.

Went for a little adult time with our son and wife. Each of us got a different flight of wine to try. We shared several of their tapas style plates, of which the Ahi tuna was outstanding.

We stopped in here to get a salad to take back to others that were at the hotel. Great salads. A few days later 12 of us ate there for lunch on Sunday. Lobster Mac and Cheese was good. Others in our party said the other salads were great and the soup was good too.

Often stay in Santa Barbara and love visiting Carpenteria but never had a meal there. Decided to try Corktree Cellars for lunch and so glad we did. We sat in the outside patio which is small but lovely and shady. Nice views if you are facing the street. Shared the artichoke and kale dip - outstanding flavour and plenty enough for two. I had the Chicken sandwich and my husband had the Lobster roll, both of which were extremely tasty. Didn't leave enough room for dessert. There is a good, varied wine list and very good coffee. The service was friendly and attentive. Will definitely return next time we are in SB.

Per the title says, big fan of their lobster dishes as well as their pretty decent happy hour menu offering a fare variety of light bites, local beers and wines. Always friendly staff and available seating inside or out. Thanks for always taking care of us over the years Cork Tree team!

Best,
