Watch a Giant Wave Ruin Everyone’s Brunch at a Santa Barbara Restaurant

A large wave collided with a waterfront restaurant in Santa Barbara on Saturday morning, bursting windows and sending glass into the dining room. The same winter storm that hit the region over the weekend created the swell directly outside of Moby Dick restaurant at Stearns Wharf, which boasts a “million-dollar view at every table.” It’s not clear if there were any serious injuries, but at least three people captured the moment of impact with their phones. On one hand, the footage is pretty incredible. On the other, if it seems like 12-foot wave is going to hit you, it probably will. Or, as one diner yells out to warn the brunchtime crowd: “Here comes another one — duck!”
