Santa Cruz - Seeking Bar/Restaurant with T.V.

cocktailqueen77 Sep 11, 2012 05:48 PM


The fiancé and I will be in Santa Cruz this upcoming Sunday for the Skimbash event and we are looking for a restaurant/bar that has a television (49er game at 5pm). Now, I'm sure there are plenty of places with a rowdy scene, but I am looking for something more subdued and the number one priority (besides the game, of course) is great food.

The one option I have come across is Aquarius in The Dream Inn, but I'm slightly skeptical on hotel restaurants (but have been proven wrong on some amazing occasions!). Any input?

Thanks in advanced!

    The Crow's Nest, Ideal Bar & Grill, and Seabright Brewery come to my mind. Crow's Nest has a separate bar, and restaurant menu. The seafood is equal to any places on the wharf IMO. In nearby Aptos is Bittersweet Bistro which is nice, and a little more upscale.
