The sea has much to teach us: its tides foretell the lunar cycle, its salt treats us to delicious shark jerky, and its colorful creatures prove that nature looks better in Blu-ray. Celebrate the big salty puddle's sagacity with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of sea fare and drinks at Coast Restaurant, located in Santa Barbara's Canary Hotel.

Upscale yet unpretentious, like a hood ornament in the shape of Morgan Freeman, Coast Restaurant offers landlubbers a comfort food menu that avails itself of Santa Barbara’s aquatic adjacency. Local farms and wharfs supply ingredients, and a raw bar stocks recently netted oysters, clams, crabs, and shrimp. Dip a toe into the local rock fish, pan-roasted with brussel sprouts and roasted onions ($25), or dive delicately into the crab cakes, with poquillo peppers, local citrus salad, and a smoked paprika vinaigrette ($14). Sea-shunners can shimmy toward the popular tortilla soup, with avocado, chicken, poblano chiles, and cheddar cheese ($9), letting Coast’s warm wooden furniture and soft lighting belly-dance captivatingly across pleasure receptors.

  • It was a great way to wind down my evening, but this is also available at lunchtime. And the elegant atmosphere is a nice change up to hole-in-the-wall taquerias. – Yelp, lemonjelly l.
  • The food was amazing. The attention to detail by the chef was impeccable. The wine list was very thorough without being overbearing. – OpenTable.com user who dined on 12/04/2010
