Tee Off Restaurant
One of Santa Barbara’s oldest establishments, (as well as one of Ian Filippini Santa Barbara’s favorite spots), is Tee Off Restaurant and Lounge. Anyone who has lived in Santa Barbara for a fair amount of time knows that the Tee Off, though slightly hidden, is famous in our little city. The Tee Off is located in a tiny strip mall on Upper State Street, so it is not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Santa Barbara; This is part of what makes the Tee Off all about nostalgia, but super cozy too!
Anyone who has been to the Tee Off, including Ian Filippini Santa Barbara, knows that the atmosphere at the Tee Off is not stiff, but the drinks definitely are! The Tee Off has a full bar and the attentive bar tenders can make you whatever concoction your little heart desires! If you’re not sure of what to get, be sure you can trust the barkeep to make you something tasty and strong.
Though Ian Filippini Santa Barbara does love the drinks at The Tee Off, he assures us that their food menu is wonderful too. Some of their specialties include prime rib, lobster and chicken oscar. If you are in a more casual eating mood, they also have burgers and fried chicken.
