It’s Day Three of Santa Cruz Restaurant Examiner/Santa Cruz Foodie’s “12 Days of Christmas Giveaway.” See end of article for how to win a Shadowbrook gift card.

Capitola restaurant Shadowbrook has been serving customers for more than 65 years. It attracts both locals and tourists, and the setting is conducive to a range of occasions including big family gatherings and romantic dates. Shadowbrook is known for excellent food including seafood, steak, and prime rib. Their desserts include a famous “Chocolate Meltdown” (molten cake served with vanilla bean ice cream).

Shadowbrook is a great spot for special occasions and holidays including Christmas; the historic venue is beautifully decorated this time of year. However, they are very busy during the season and are actually almost all booked for the holiday itself. Owner Ted Burke recommends booking a weekday dinner to relax during a meal with a more leisurely pace, while still getting to enjoy Shadowbrook all decked out for Xmas. Holiday decorations will be up until at least Dec. 30. By the way, Wednesdays tend to be the slowest night at the restaurant.

Shadowbrook gift cards make a fun gift if you have foodies to shop for. If you order cards online, they can be for any amount starting at $25 and they will be mailed to you. You can also buy gift cards by phone (831-475-1511) or in person at the restaurant (1750 Wharf Rd., Capitola). Either way, they never expire.
