Great margaritas, wonderful place to enjoy friends, drinks and snacks. Food is traditional Mexican, OK. But go for the fun, the drinks & camaraderie! It's a fun atmosphere! Enjoy you friends.... you won't care about the food.

The last several months the service has been deplorable. I have been coming here for years (30 or more) and now I won't return anytime soon. The food is the same, but by the time you receive it, it is cold. I go up to the bar to get my own drinks, as the waitress never brings it. Many of... More

There were six of us, and we were celebrating a birthday dinner for my brother. Everyone was excited to have a meal as we had been there so many times before. The server had a bit of an attitude when the gals wanted a stirring straw for their half n half margarita. Jessica said they only give one straw per... More

This was my only second trip this year to Ventura's (previously once per week or so) due to poor service. This month it was by far the worst service I ever had anywhere. It was so bad that one of my friends left after getting the first drink. The rest of us made through. The margarita mix was changed -... More

This place is busy whenever you go. Plan on having a hard time to park or a long way to walk from your car. We enjoy sitting at the bar which can be really hard to do sometimes. The service is not great or fast but they are very friendly. They are known for their marg's and make a lot... More

Ventura's is a northwestern ohio jewel. The mexican food is awesome, the service with Marilyn was outstanding, and the cajun chicken nachos were the best in the world! Another secret to this place is their ribs. Their ribs are so tender and delicious, they could easily win awards. If you haven't tried them...you should.
