Fun place, nice interior and good food

I've eaten here several times, and always enjoy their salmon boxty, their homemade mashed potatoes, and their onion rings. My husband enjoyed his corned beef and cabbage, and our friend's shepherd's pie was excellent and huge-more than enough to share. Be hungry when you come here. There's a nice... read more

I've eaten here several times, and always enjoy their salmon boxty, their homemade mashed potatoes, and their onion rings. My husband enjoyed his corned beef and cabbage, and our friend's shepherd's pie was excellent and huge-more than enough to share. Be hungry when you come here. There's a nice selection of beers and wine, and a full bar.

Great bar. New and improved menu since it first opened. Huge choice of beers. Super popular on St. Patrick's Day, but equally as fun on any given weekend with a group of friends. Trivia night is also a blast!

Had dinner here on a weeknight. Ate near the front on the restaurant side (though this is fairly open to the bar side). Reasonably busy ( we did get seated right away) and variety of TV's on with different sports made the place quite noisy. Food was good (husband had fish & chips; I had Caesar salad with chicken), but... More

A great atmosphere, great food, good beer. Very unique and cool restaurant inside, Clint took advantage of the cool old building space and kept some great features of the architecture. Great hang out, a bit loud for intimate conversation.

If you want someplace to knock back a shot -- or two -- or three -- of Jameson's, listen to live music, or just hang out and indulge in decent pub fare in Santa Paula's historic downtown district, Garman's is the place. "Pub Grub" ranges from killer plates of nachos to buffalo wings. Sit-down meals include standard sandwiches such as... More

Garman's is our go to place! We love the food, drinks and atmosphere. We are locals and take friends there for the relaxed vibe. My favorite meals are the Cobb salad and shepherds pie. I always have leftovers for the next day. Keep up the great work!!! We are happy to support a really great local business! - Kim

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.
