Posted: Updated:

More than 750-thousand people have viewed two you-tube videos of a big wave crashing through windows of Moby dick's restaurant Saturday morning...The big wave smashed the glass and sent soaked diners screaming and rushing for the doors.

Swells up to 12 feet added a bit too much ocean ambiance to the popular restaurant.

Remarkably, there were no reports of injuries, according to the Santa Barbara office of Emergency Management

Officials in Santa Barbara closed the waterfront area, according to emergency manager Yolanda McGlinchey. Two boats also washed ashore and a pair of pilings was lost from Stearns wharf early Saturday afternoon.
