To our valued guests:

We elected to close our doors back in March to help combat the spread of COVID-19.  As Santa Barbara County continues to grapple with the effects of the pandemic, we will remain closed at this time. 
Though we are not currently open for business, please know that we wish you Safe + Well during these uncertain times.

Thank you for your continued support of our restaurant.

The backbone of Root 246’s menu is a commitment to American cuisine that is farm-fresh, delightfully simple, and above all...delicious. This mission is made easier by geography. Root 246 is located in the heart of Santa Barbara County, with its thousands of acres of farmland and vineyards, and proximity to the Pacific Ocean.

Each day, the chefs at Root 246 take full advantage of all the region has to offer. The menu is a daily nod to the growing movement toward sustainable agriculture - a way of raising food that is healthy for consumers and animals, and does not harm the environment. With the focus on fresh, inviting, and comfortable cuisine, Root 246’s modern, state-of-the-art design and a knowledgeable and accommodating staff truly complement the menu. Guests will feel like they’re at home, whether they’re eating a burger, or indulging in a prime rib eye steak and a glass of wine.

The finest ingredients. 
Unmistakably Root 246.
