Years ago I really looked forward to my MC visit, especially the desserts. Over the past few years, well "yuck." Wilted salad greens and over salted food have become the norm. Desserts are still ok, but the price makes it more of a question of value. Ventura desperately needs better restaurants and MC is one of the reasons why. Skip... More

My wife and I were seated and we placed an order for lunch -- nothing fancy, a chicken sandwich and a couple of chicken tacos. We waited about 40 minutes and the food still wasn't delivered to our table. Yet, two separate couples came in about 10 to 15 minutes after we were seated, ordered their hot entrees (from a... More

This location is about average for Marie Callender's. The service is pretty good. The special $6-$9 menu has lots of options for not a lot of money. Their salad/soup bar seems a little overpriced, but it does have a good variety of ingredients, including at least a couple of kinds of meat, so you can make a meal of it.

Great dinner. The grandkids loaded up on the salad bar and I had the salmon. Very tender and the broccoli was perfect. Not too hard. The French apple pie with ice cream topped it off.

Following a meeting with a potential customer, we stopped here for a quick lunch before the long drive back down to Orange County. The great feature of the Marie Callender's chain is the level of consistency from one restaurant to another. You know exactly what you are getting and it is always good. I appreciate that. My business partner had... More
