Industrial Eats is a quality-centered dining experience tucked away in a re-purposed warehouse on Industrial Way in Buellton, California.

It’s tattooed with produce and grocery graffiti on its exterior wall and boasts a craft butcher counter filled with house made treats and extensive indulgences. Two wood fired ovens churn out thousands of seasonal dishes every year, all sourced from sustainable farms and food pioneers. The restaurant is filled with knick knacks and books lining the walls – collected from years of odd hobbies and cultivated impulse buying – and rows of communal tables full of patrons chatting and eyeing their neighbor’s meals.

The owners, Jeff and Janet Olsson, along with their expert crew, value bringing people together through a shared feasting environment by serving respectfully honest great food.top salivating and come visit us in the Santa Ynez Valley.

Riverbench Vineyard was established in 1973, when the first Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes were planted on the bank of the Sisquoc River, known as the Santa Maria Bench. For decades since then, local winemakers have purchased Riverbench fruit for their wines.

In 2004, Riverbench Winery was founded to produce their own Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and sparkling wines in limited quantities. Most wines are available exclusively through their wine tasting room, set in a 1920's craftsman-style house located along the Foxen Wine Trail - a beautiful rural drive from Los Alamos or Los Olivos.
