Stopped in for lunch while visiting Ventura for the day. Tried their Seaward Golden Ale which is an American blonde. Good flavor for a light beer. I also enjoyed the The San Buenaventura burger which was quite tasty. We dined on the sidewalk patio with our dog and enjoyed a lovely day in Ventura.

Went for a dinner date with friends and loved this little jem. We sat on the patio and sipped fabulous beer and all shared plates. We had the jalapeño poppers. the mac n cheese pizza, the fried chicken and waffles, and the fish tacos. We loved everything. We will be back for sure. This is a lively place to meet... More

Tried all the beers on tap. Sat at the bar area, didn't try any food. Nothing jumped out at us. Service was super pleasant, and friendly but really didn't have a good working knowledge of the beers.

Really enjoyed the quinoa and veg soup- a little spicy and very tasty. Lovely friendly and knowledgable staff. Great music and tasty beer especially the Frenchys Cove Saison similar to blue moon but with strength!

We have been on holiday in the USA for 5 weeks and this was the best meal my wife and I had. The steak meals were perfection. Cooked how we asked and the beer was the perfect compliment to the food. Highly reccomend if you are in this area!!

Yes, we came back after a 2 year break but we do live in the UK so it wasn't anticipated that we'd come back earlier. Once again we found top service, great beer & wine, nice food and excellent service. Wonder if it'll be another 2 years until we're back again. Who knows? Would like to think so!

There was a big, pub-style menu but there were lots of healthy choices and the salads were fantastic. A nice selection of beers and enough screens if you popped in to watch the game. The staff was attentive and friendly.

We had the pleasure of returning to Ventura recently (had been here several years prior) and enjoyed a beautiful day exploring the downtown area. When in one of the shops, we asked the employees for a recommendation, and they said Anacapa, without any hesitation. We took their recommendation and were certainly glad we did. We enjoyed sitting outside and thoroughly... More

This is a great place for good beer in Ventura. The food is also really good, Ahi egg roles and fried calamari being my favorite. The staff is very helpful and nice.
