If you want to go on a gorgeous drive and visit a beautiful one-of-a-kind location AND have amazing tri-tip sandwiches and ribs you HAVE to visit Cold Springs Tavern.
Cold Spring Tavern is a former stagecoach stop dating back to 1886 that has been in the Ovington- Wilson family since 1941. We are located between Santa Barbara and Santa Ynez in the beautiful mountains on the San Marcos Pass off Highway 154. Here you can appreciate the true history of the old stagecoach days.
We serve traditional American fare made with fresh local ingredients accompanied by our famous home-baked molasses bread. Our dinners feature game inspired entrees, steaks, and ribs and are enjoyed by the glimmer of gas lanterns. Lunch is more casual and includes our famous Cold Spring Chili among other soups, sandwiches, and salads. We also serve a hearty breakfast with home-made biscuits on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Be sure and visit us in the winter to enjoy our three warm glowing fireplaces.
