Delicious, fresh seafood

Great lunch here, enjoying sitting outside on the covered patio. Perfectly cooked Captain's Platter had fish, shrimp and calamari @$15 per person. Breading was great: tempura style on the fish and shrimp, not excessive and not over-cooked. Calamari was also not over-breaded, and was nicely... read more

A little disappointed based on comments from others. The staff was good and they accommodated our dog, but the food was just so so.

Ok, to be fair. We didn't eat there. My husband and I were looking for a nice relaxing place to eat lunch before a little wine tasting. We stopped by thinking the outdoor seating is just what we were looking for, but it was just the wrong vibe. We got seated and didn't get any service for quite a while.... More

We were in town for one night and ate here: $20 shrimp & crab louie salad had a unpleasant fishy smell to me but my husb insisted it was OK and ate it, and I had his local halibut fish n' chips, which I thought were a little dry and average (you pay $5 *extra* for local halibut, so not... More

What it lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in a big way with everything else. The food and service are terrific. It's reasonably priced for what you're getting and the menu is extensive and wonderfully varied, whatever protein you're looking for. We ordered shrimp cocktail and tuna sushi rolls to start. Both were delightfully generous in portion and perfectly... More

After biking the Ojai Trail my daughter & I were ready for a meal. We found Sea Fresh Seafood conveniently located on the main street of Ojai. We choose to eat in the open air & it was the perfect day for al fresco eating. I had Fish & Chips ($11) & my daughter had the Sea Fresh Cobb salad... More

Our server, Liz, was exceptional with both us and the table of twelve adjoining. She was flawlessly professional. We found the meals well proportioned and prepared with care my sanddabs werE sautéed in butter with capers, a lot of them too, and not over cooked. My husband had a halibut in a nut crusted coating. He enjoyed it but later... More

Very large covered outdoor patio that allows dogs! Yay! This location also hosts a seafood market which was cool. Halibut was cooked to perfection...garlic mash was yummy! Had the coconut shrimp as suggested by our server. It was good just not as flavorful as I had hoped. Good draft beer...great pricing on pitchers! Very pleasant server that gave us excellent... More
