We had an extremely upsetting experience with one of the bartenders at this establishment. I had written out a detailed description of what happened, but unfortunately I am unable to fit it all in the allotted space. He overcharged our card and then was adamant that we were lying about it. He was rude, condescending, and insulting. If that is the vibe the owners want to give off, then by all means they should keep him there. I would be happy to have the owners contact me for a detailed account of what happened. We would love to return to Uptown Lounge, but while he is employed there, we most likely will not.

Great pizza. The dough was light and crispy, and wasn't salty and cheesy.

Good selection of draft beer. Pizza is great. Gabi who caters Mexican food on NFL Sundays is also a master! Hope they never stop inviting him. Vast array of screens to catch all of the games!

The first time we went, their cook had gone home early so we were unable to order food (which was included with the Groupin). The next time we visited, they were out of all fruit for cocktails, the bar tender was pretty slow, though the customers at the bar were rude and giving her a hard time, they don't serve pitchers (beer), the keg of beer we wanted to order ran out and they didn't change the keg the entire time we were there. I order a second beer and they needed to change the keg, so I left the bar, assuming they would bring it over to me - it never arrived. The food was actually quite good, and the ambiance is very nice.

Took a very long time for the pizza, possibly only enough room in the oven for one pizza. The pizza was very good though. Our server left very abruptly, I think she thought we wouldn't tip because we had a groupon. But nice atmosphere and decor.

The pizza crust was undercooked....doughy tasting and the bottom of it had a heavy coat of a very finely powdery flour. I tried to brush it off but still had that flour taste.

The chicken strips were amazing although the pizza was a little bland. The "large" pizzas were a little smallish, but the beer and atmosphere were great.

From Our Editors

An ideal place for anybody looking for a slower-paced atmosphere that still offers plenty to do, Uptown Bar & Lounge seeks to serve as a neighborhood bar for all types. The recently renovated lounge is divided into distinct sections. A gleaming granite bar supports 12 taps and shelves full of high-end spirits, and visitors perched on leather chairs at high-top tables gaze at 13 flat-screen TVs broadcasting sporting events. Classy touches—an old-fashioned cash register here, a piano there—elevate the space from the typical sports bar.

Elsewhere, two red-felted pool tables are an outlet for the casually competitive, while a seating area appointed with sofas provides a refuge for guests who can't watch a shot clock count down without turning into a pumpkin at the buzzer. Also, parts of the bar are converted into a rousing music venue to host open-mic nights, DJ sessions, and live bands. The back patio, with its couches, fire pits, and additional TV, is a pleasant spot to enjoy a cool Santa Barbara evening, especially when you include a pizza cooked in the outdoor oven.
