Enjoyed the food though he menu is a little sparse but my biggest problem is the noisiness. My husband and I had to sit quietly because neither could hear the other!

First off, our server was absolutely delightful and very accommodating. I ordered the clam chowder to start. It was DELICIOUS! One of the best chowders I've had in a long time! With that said, I expected my salmon to be spectacular too. Sadly, it was...More

Only if you were on the corner of the patio closest to the ocean. The sun sets over the ocean so if you have an ocean view from the patio, you will see it.

We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Ventura & Santa Barbara Harbor. You'll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at these true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the "small" menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the "long" menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals' favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.
