I'm a local and a fan of good barbecue. Unfortunately, the barbecue here is just "meh". Have been here a couple times, both for happy hour, and was not impressed with the food quality either time. There just wasn't any zing or pow to the...More

He ruined our experience! He was rude, unprofessional and antagonizing of all things! We will never go back! Spread the word its not a true Venturian feel!

The tri tip here is amazing and they have a decent beer selection. We enjoy the patio over inside seating, it's a great spot to sit if you enjoy people watching.

Stopped in for dinner and sat in the patio. Great people watching. Had the Chardonnay chicken, very good with a nice sauce. Hubby enjoyed his steak also. Nice service, friendly staff. Not too expensive, will go back.

Thanks so much for the review and kind words. That Chardonnay Chicken is one of our newer items on the menu, and it's been getting a great response! Hope to see you in again sometime. All the best, JR

We are locals and love sitting outside on the front patio right on our beautiful Ventura Main Street. Saturday night is fun because the classic cars come cruising by and there are always a few motorcycles driving by, which for us, adds to the ambience!!!...More

More than just a great steakhouse, Winchesters serves up the freshest seafood, succulent chicken, and even some exotic meats like venison, buffalo, and elk. But don’t forget about those Certified Angus Beef™ steaks. Whether it’s the massive Rib-Eye, the petite Top Sirloin, the New York or Tri-Tip they’re always thick and juicy and grilled to perfection. Lighter fare includes great burgers, salads and grilled sandwiches. Their forty draft beers along with extensive Wine and Martini lists will round out a truly memorable meal. Two heated patios and ample parking available.
