The salads, pizzas and sandwiches are exceptional for the price. And the courtyard setting is delightful. Plenty of room for kids and pets. And the music is delightful. While usually its a solo singer/guitar player singing songs from the 60's and 70's, I was blessed to be there when these descendants of the Lennon Sisters had an extended family reunion... More

Yesterday afternoon we ate at Papa Lennon's. My wife had a chicken and brie panini and I had a house salad and garlic fries. The food was fine - nice portion size - served hot and fresh and the price was fine ($24.67 food & one iced tea + one soda). If the food, price ambiance (we sat on the... More

Standing in line to place an order is not my favorite thing to do, but once we were seated in the relaxed patio of this place, everything was great. I had the caesar salad and my husband had a chicken panini. Both were excellent, and we enjoyed a slow conversation over local beer.

Papa Lennon's is a must if you're in Ojai. Simple & fresh atmosphere & food with very pleasant service. We got the Mediterranean pizza & pasta primavera & mm'd & ah'd our way thru every bite. & though we ate inside, the garden area outside was cute!

We had heard about this place from the locals. Since we were meeting friends later in the evening we ordered pizza to go and were very happy with the pizza, but thought it was a little pricey for the size.

Staying nearby, and Papa Lennon's was suggested. Pepperoni pizza was fine. Angel hair pomodoro was so watery and oily that after draining the plate and showing it to the server, I asked for a refund. Try the pizza, that was fine.

Went here with my mother in law for a late dinner. Ordered BBQ chicken pizza and foccacia bread with sangrias. Service friendly. Ordered at counter. Got our food super fast. It was delicious! Loved the outdoor dining area, nice atmosphere at night. I would definitely eat here again!
