To our valued guest:


The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, which owns and operates Root 246, has announced that its Chumash Casino Resort will reopen on Wednesday, June 10 under strict safety measures and cleaning procedures that have been implemented with the health and well-being of its employees and guests in mind.

While the resort is reopening, our Root 246 restaurant will remain closed at this time. We will post further updates here regarding Root 246’s status in the coming weeks.

Thank you for your continued support of our restaurant.

Tribal Chairman, Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians


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.
