I may be wrong but I believe Lure is a seafood chain with several locations in SoCal. We were next door shopping and stumbled on this location. We were craving fish, seafood. First, kudos for management in training all of the staff. Everyone from the young hosts, and our server was fantastic. The very good menu of many different fish,... More

Our group of nine were greeted by Jonathan and escorted to a patio table after a fairly lengthy wait (no reservations available at this very popular spot, so you take your chances with seating). We are willing to to endure the time, however, because the Lure never disappoints. From the kids fish & chips to the Sand Dabs, halibut and... More

When traveling up the coast we always stop here and eat at oyster bar. The guys behind the oyster bar are friendly, funny and know their menu very well. They know what beverage pairs well with whatever you decide to order. The customer service is outstanding! The prices are fair for what you get and the atmosphere is very relaxing.... More

I thought I would never review a restaurant for anything but the food. Hence the two stars over one. We have been dining here since they opened nearly a decade ago. But I must say how disappointment I had become today when I learned that our reservation of the private room was canceled. We were in the restaurant on February... More

The bar area is light and bright, fun and loud. This is a local hang out for Happy Hour. Wait staff give good service and are always friendly. If you like fish and fun you will love the food here. It is a good place to meet with friends, family and couples. If you come Solo you will make a... More

I was hoping that this place would be better. The menu looked good, but the preparation was average at best. When I order ceviche I expect the main component to be fish; this one was mostly cucumber and cabbage. The halibut was a good piece of fish, but the preparation was uninspired. I paid a premium for the side of... More

Great fresh seafood, helpful staff and prompt service. They have a nice variety of grilled or broiled entrees as well as a good selection of lighter fare.

The service and food was very good. It is an open restaurant, so it can be a bit noisy at times. Suggest you make reservations on the weekends.

Excellent seafood, excellent service, excellent 'happy hour', both restaurants conveniently located! One is near the Premium Outlets in Camarillo and the other is located in downtown Ventura. Everyone has a favorite dish. Grilled oysters, crab cakes, ceviche, clam chowder, you name it, they've got it!
