Just a few short steps off State Street lies a piece of Santa Barbara history. For over 25 years The Palace Grill has given Santa Barbara an authentic New Orleans dining experience. The Palace specializes in Cajun and Creole cuisine, from Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffée, Gumbo, Catfish, Oysters and much more. Experience live jazz on the weekends or mardi gras beads on Tuesdays for everyone. The owners routinely fly their entire staff to New Orleans so they can experience the magic and maintain the authenticity of a restaurant in the French Quarter. The Palace Grill offers you a trip to the French Quarter District – minus the long flight.
The Palace Grill became a part of Santa Barbara history when the White House Press Corps made it one of their favorite restaurants during the Reagan Era. Catering the dedication ceremony for the Reagan Presidential Library cemented the Palace Grill’s place in Santa Barbara history.
Besides being world famous for their food, the Palace Grill also offers world class service. Their “team” approach makes the entire staff available to you at all times.
Los Angeles Magazine rates the Palace Grill “best on the west coast for Cajun-Creole cooking.” Gourmet Magazine describes it “as though suddenly the Bayou country had dropped into the Santa Barbara beach-front.”
