''BEST SEAFOOD RESTAURANT IN OJAI'

Sea Fresh Restaurant is my favorite place in Ojai and I have eaten at many. The food is consistently good, the atmosphere is wonderful, inside and out. The new sushi bar, with great happy hour prices, along with the full alcohol bar and outdoor patio seating right along Ojai Avenue are all great... read more

I read about Sea Fresh and was intrigued that the owners were actually fishermen. It was a chilly night, however, the hostess thoughtfully gave us a table near the heater. I was looking forward to some good seafood, it was not to be. My wife had her reservations given the fact that the menu had so many options, her theory... More

We love this place, it felt very welcoming and a place the locals hang out. They made a killer martini just what I needed and the food was fresh and delicious

Before their big remodel, this was my absolute favorite place to eat in Ojai, but since then the quality of food and service has gone way down. I gave it a fighting chance..went there 4 or 5 times and allowed a few months to go by to make sure they had their ducks in a row after such a big... More

we had lunch here and it was delicious. I could have eaten the Green Dragon sushi roll three times over. Really good menu comprising seafood, sushi and other meat dishes. Great cocktails and a really nice ambiance. We would move to this town if we could!

Friendly service and really good food. I had an excellent steak. The bleu cheese dressing on the salad was really good. The server responded well to all our special requests.

Convenient outdoor location in the heart of Ojai. Value-priced, quality fresh fish. My wife and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I love their fresh fish and their steaks! Their clam chowder is to die for, but my favorites are their grilled prawns and their calamari. We've been going here for more than 10 years, and their remodeling really made the outdoor eating area better than ever with its fire pit and beautiful view of the Topa Topa bluffs, especially when...

Yum! Visited for dinner and it was delicious. We didn't have our dogs with us, but the patio is dog friendly. They even have a dog menu. I had chargrilled shrimp and it was sooooo good. Green beans with garlic. It probably doesn't matter what you order here, you probably can't go wrong.

We pulled into town and noticed the lovely patio. Decided to give it a try. My husband ordered the macadamia crusted halibut and I had the parmesan scallops. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful as well. Prices were very reasonable!
