Good atmosphere

Love going to Santa Paula - it's such a pretty place with lots going on and this our favourite watering hole. The decor is striking, the staff friendly, the choice of beer is great and the food is good and reasonably priced.

Stopped for lunch while driving through area based on other reviews of this restaurant. Glad we did its a great little pub with tasty food. I had the Strawberry Goat Cheese Greens salad and it was fresh and very very good. Highly recommend.

We were camping at Ventura Ranch KOA and went to Garman's to watch the Panthers/Seahawks game with the locals. Our waitress was so wonderful, and the food was AMAZING! Potato Leek Soup, Fish and Chips, (homemade chips) and the Peach Blueberry Cobbler with ice cream were fantastic, and we will be back, just for dinner, as we live in Simi... More

As other reviewers have noted, Garman's Irish Pub has both good food and a good selection of beers, but I think it's rather pricey for a small town cafe.

I don't usually frequent Irish Pubs, but Garman's food rocks! The menu has lots of great selections including salads, but my favorite is their Portabello Mushroom Sandwich. I order it with a grilled breast of chicken inside -juicy, flavorful...perhaps the best Portabello sandwich I've ever had, and right in my home town! Go figure. My wife's 'go-to' is the potato...

The friendly staff, good cook and real pub feeling makes this a great place for lunch, cocktails or dinner. Add to that great beer on tap and you can't ask for more in a pub.

We've been fans since the opened! Great place to unwind over beer and dinner. Attentive staff and engaged ownership really place an emphasis on good service. My favorites are the Fish and Chips, Fish Tacos, Irish Tacos and Steak wrap. Irish Nachos are a great bet for a app, and the "special night" choice is the ribeye. I rarely have... More

Drink prices are out of line. 2 domestic 12 Oz drafts were $15. While I expect them to charge a price that makes them money, this is way over the top. My wife and I drank our beers and left. We do not expect to ever go back.

Dano - Thanks for writing review. We only serve 20 oz draft beers at $7.00 + tax at the pub. We do not serve 12 oz drafts, only 12 oz bottles. Sorry if there was a mixup but would love to make it right in your eyes. Please give me a call Monday in the afternoon at 805.933.4600. Appreciate it.... More

The title says it all. :). Had the Irish Cobb salad & then took the bread pudding back to the hotel, was too full to have there. Wine selection could be much better.
