Beachfront + Affordable Al Fresco Dining {Padaro Beach Grill}

This weekend, we went beach camping with Brett’s parents — they drove their vintage trailer on its “maiden voyage” from Tahoe, and will be spending a total of 14 days camping in various locations across the 805!


We met up with them in Carpinteria, which immediately made me crave fish and chips from Padaro Beach Grill.  This preggo woman was appeased (thanks, guys!) and we decided to have dinner there Saturday night.


Guys, if you’re looking for your new favorite place, THIS IS IT.

Fast-casual dining with an ocean view, local brews, killer fish and chips, juicy hamburgers, and a place for your kids to stay occupied while you breathe in the ocean air… that’s what I’m talking about.



While I couldn’t partake in the wonderful selection of local beer (wah wahhh), I did have a delicious Piña Colada!  We also highly recommend the pretzel burger and Hawaiian burger, yum!


Located on Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria (3 doors down from where Brett and I got married!), Padaro Beach Grill is a great place to let the week roll off, relax, and grab a great bite to eat!

We will definitely be taking our little Schussel Sprout here — loving how family friendly this place is!


What’s your favorite thing about this central coast gem?  Let us know!
