You get what you pay for, and Brophy’s is on the expensive side. However, the view and the ambiance are excellent. The food is very good and always consistent. Try the oysters! Try the bloody mary’s! Fresh seafood at its best right in Ventura Harbor....More

The best thing about this place is the super cool location to sit and eat and watch the boats go in and out of the harbor. The food was OK but nothing amazing.

Brophy Bros. Ventura is probably one of the best places in Ventura to enjoy lunch or dinner with a beautiful view in the background. I find this location to be a lot better than the one in Santa Barbara because it is a lot bigger,...More

I have had dinner here a few times over the last few years. The food is good and the service is very good as well. At the cost, you can not go wrong. I will come back next time I am in the area.

Upper level but elevator available. Great view of the harbor from outside tables. Enjoyed the lunch special of clam chowder and salad accompanied by sourdough bread. Service efficient but hurried and very impersonal, server didn't engage and simply presented the check without even asking if...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.
