this is a go-to spot in Carpinteria just up Highway 101 from Ventura or a ten minute ride south from Santa Barbara. Great food, casual atmosphere, good service. my favorite is the Chicken Curry salad or sandwich.

4 of us had dinner, early around 6:00, not that busy then but very quickly the restaurant was full. Halibut and Salmon were excellent. Waiter Scott took very good care of us. We would go back...it's pricey but fresh

I have never had a bad meal at Zookers. New Year's Eve was no different. The lobster special was simply delicious.

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
