This was my 5th visit to Zookers and it is consistent good and never disappoints. The menu is varied so those who want fish, meat, Mexican or vegetarian will all be satisfied. The ingredients are absolutely fresh and the preparation is creative. The wine list is small but carefully chosen and moderately priced. The wait staff is very friendly and... More

Zookers is always a friendly and fun place to dine in Carpinteria...and the Cobb salad is definitely the best around! There is a fun and interesting menu, with a number of locally grown items...and the wait staff is cheerful and helpful...Very popular locally, Zookers is one of those nice restaurants where you can dress casually and enjoy a lovely lunch...

My mom loves this place and so do I. She lives down the street and eats here often. She is 85 years of feisty and this place is a wonderful way to celebrate having such a person in my life. Their chef is incredible. My daughter was able to also share a meal with my mom this past week and... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a Carp local, unfortunately it was a little disappointing. My first impression was it looked a little like a refurbished Denny's. No problem, but when I ordered my Martini I was told it was beer and wine only. I was led to believe this was kind of an upscale restaurant, nope. We had... More

I heard great things about the food here. It was lunch time when a gf and I went in. I ordered a salmon salad and my friend ordered an asian shrimp salad. The table next to us got serviced after we did and they were there before us. Our lunch entrees took as long as if we had been in... More

Delicious food in a casual setting filled with orchids. The fish specials are always good, and the turkey meatloaf is also a favorite. There is something for everybody at Zookers, which never fails to satisfy.

I have never set foot in Zookers but I've had lunches catered by them and the food is always top notch as is the service. From the ease of ordering, efficient delivery, to the fresh quality food, you don't get a better deal than this place I will use them for client lunches whenever I can. The sandwiches are unique...

Stopped in today for lunch and had a great experience. I ordered a small cobb salad and a cup of the daily soup. The flavors were unique and the food was fresh and delicious. The atmosphere and staff were professional but inviting. Highly recommend!

I have eaten lunch here about three times. I haven't been able to move past their fantastic chicken curry salad. The presentation is beautiful with the curried chicken, toasted almonds, celery, onion and apricot in the center on a lovely bed of spring greens complete with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing on the greens, lovely slices of cucumber and seasoned pita...
