Blackhawk Limo | Cold Spring Tavern

For us at Blackhawk Limousine Santa Barbara, we get tons of calls from locals, celebrities, and tourists using our LA limo service. From all the VIP transportation we do in the Santa Barbara region, we learn about many of the great hidden gems. One of them is the Cold Spring Tavern. This great restaurant on Stagecoach Road in Santa Barbara has been a popular tavern since it was built in the 1880’s as a stagecoach stop for wagons traveling the mountains to reach Santa Barbara. It is secluded and rustic, located in a smaller canyon in the mountains of Santa Barbara County. While it was previously most visited by horse and wagons, it’s now mostly visited by cars, tons of Harley Davidson’s, as well as numerous clients utilizing our limousine service in Santa Barbara or Ventura Limo Service. The tavern is nestled in a gorgeous narrow and shady canyon among huge pine trees and oaks close to Los Olivos in the Santa Ynez Valley. A large amount of our Santa Barbara wine tour customers choose to stop here on the way to or from the great wineries of the Santa Ynez Valley. It is fairly difficult to find, on San Marcos Pass, which is north of Highway 154, you really have to be on the look out to see the sign for Stagecoach Road Inn. Turn left here, then follow the relatively poorly marked road to the right and down to the canyon. However, customers utilizing our limousine service Santa Barbara have absolutely nothing to fear. We are well versed on the area because this is a tremendously popular location for LA limo customers looking for an intimate and romantic setting.


The Cold Spring Tavern has definitely changed a lot since the times of the late 1880’s when the restaurant functioned as a relay station for stagecoaches that came here to the top of the San Marcos Pass to experience a traditional Old West meal. Much has changed since then, while other things have not. You can in fact still see the steps of the old stagecoaches here and the building is as rustic as secluded as it was in 1886. Well, sort of. It does host live musical performances every Friday, Saturday and Sunday now. And it might be more of the rich and famous of Beverly Hills, Malibu, and Hollywood using Ventura limo or limousine Santa Barbara that come here. Well, and the menu has changed. Well, sort of anyway's. They offer really great steaks such as sautéed elk steak, rabbit, traditional buffalo burgers, wild boar, venison home-made sausage, and more modern options, as ribs, steaks, filets, and much more, all with their own fabulous BBQ-sauce. The Cold Spring Tavern is also home to a gift shop and a bar, which is also visited by motorcyclists and is a popular hang out spot from many celebrities in the region, including many using our Limousine Santa Barbara services. The bar is available for dancing both inside and outside and is a tremendously popular limo Santa Barbara destination. The Cold Spring Tavern Restaurant is open seven days a week and is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For a date, snuggle up to the wood burning fire place and dine underneath the romantic lamplight. Our humble lunch suggestions would be to check out their sausage burger, steak sandwich or traditional buffalo burger. For dinner, baby ribs, steak, grilled chicken, pasta and seafood are great choices. For the more adventurous Santa Barbara limo customers, try out their wild game or maybe their wild boar tenderloin? Many like to round off with a great dessert such as their apple cobbler or pecan pie.
