We had a group of 9 business folks and asked for the party room - I was so surprised it wasn't taken already. We had excellent service and the food was great! My fish was cooked to perfection! The cocktails were interesting and very tasty!

Lure is amazing. My best friend and I went while shopping downtown. The Cosmo with Grey Goose was amazing. My friend had trout with rice and spinach. I had a vegetarian salad.

Lure reminds me of a true east coast fish house. The decor is lovely, the servers are educated and attentive and the food is fantastic!!!!!! They have great side dishes and the sand dabs were amazing. 50/50 clam chowder was the best I have ever had and of course with their sourdough bread it's pretty much a meal in itself.... More

Lure can always be counted on for an excellent seafood experience. If for any reason you dislike or are disappointed in your meal ask to have it corrected and they will. Both of their homemade clam chowders are fabulous. Ask for a bowl of 50/50 chowder!

Lure is our favorite seafood place in the area but we think the new kid in Camarillo is giving this one a run for its money. In our case, the oysters and strawberry salad were excellent as always but both of our fishes (local halibut and red snapper in the fish tacos) we're overcooked and dry today. Not going to... More

Excellent food, good service, good sized portions for the price. We enjoyed our appetizer, all of our entrees were delicious, and the blueberry cobbler we shared was also excellent.

I've eaten dinner twice here within the last month or so. The service is over the top from the bartender and bar staff to our waiter, Darryl and the bus boys. The happy hour is priced right for drinks and appetizers. The food is top notch. I've had Salmon both times which was amazing and my daughter and girlfriend both... More

Great food and service. Love the raw oysters. My husband and I like the Ventura location and we think the service is way better than the Camarillo location. They have a great happy hour menu. We highly recommend Lure Fish House in Ventura.
