After driving 2 hours we stopped for a flight of beers to taste. I enjoyed the variety of beers. I thought the place had a cool vibe. Old building turned brewery /restaurant in the heart of Ventura. Only one fall, once we were served we never really saw the server again...no interaction about the beer... so this is really just... More

I think I've tried them all and for my money, this is the best sandwich place on Main St The pulled pork sandwich is large, juicy and very popular, but the turkey and brie is to die for. They add a touch of some kind of jam that enhances the tangy taste of the brie and the result is womderful

Stopped in for lunch while visiting Ventura for the day. Tried their Seaward Golden Ale which is an American blonde. Good flavor for a light beer. I also enjoyed the The San Buenaventura burger which was quite tasty. We dined on the sidewalk patio with our dog and enjoyed a lovely day in Ventura.

Went for a dinner date with friends and loved this little jem. We sat on the patio and sipped fabulous beer and all shared plates. We had the jalapeño poppers. the mac n cheese pizza, the fried chicken and waffles, and the fish tacos. We loved everything. We will be back for sure. This is a lively place to meet... More

Tried all the beers on tap. Sat at the bar area, didn't try any food. Nothing jumped out at us. Service was super pleasant, and friendly but really didn't have a good working knowledge of the beers.

Really enjoyed the quinoa and veg soup- a little spicy and very tasty. Lovely friendly and knowledgable staff. Great music and tasty beer especially the Frenchys Cove Saison similar to blue moon but with strength!

We have been on holiday in the USA for 5 weeks and this was the best meal my wife and I had. The steak meals were perfection. Cooked how we asked and the beer was the perfect compliment to the food. Highly reccomend if you are in this area!!
