If you have not tried Spencer's, you need too. Great fish tacos, ahi pockets and other fresh delectables. Good variety, always fresh and tasty. Very reasonable priced, quick and convenient.

One of our favorite family owned seafood dine in or outside restaurant. Food is always tasty and service great. Walking distance to the Ventura pier or downtown. Several Spencer McKenzie hot sauces to choose. A local favorite.

We are die hard fans of their fish tacos and ahi pockets. Indoor and outside seating available and very casual. Beer selection good, wine selection not so much. Friendly staff!

Best Fish Taco's in Town. Good atmosphere. Friendly Service. They have a fish and shrimp burrito that is truly off the charts good so if I can recommend anything, that would be it
