Had lunch and a beer first then returned at night and had a great steak. The dishes are large and we are small eaters so they happily split one meal onto two plates for us. Great atmosphere and staff.

Caveat. I have been there once. I also can't wait to go back. The location is great. You can sit outside which is lovely. The service is excellent. EVERY staff person says hello when you walk by them. And they are attentive with refills. We split the egg sandwich for breakfast and it was so, so, so good. Pepper jack... More

A decent new entry to the Ventura scene "The Tap" is fast becoming a local favorite. The "near the beach" vibe is cool, the building and patio well done and the staff seems well trained and professional. The food is average and drinks are decently priced at Happy Hour but get a little pricey after that. Located less than a... More

This place has potential, parking is horrible though and food is just ok. After 20 minutes of looking for a parking spot, we entered into this fancy place, service was ok, we tried the street Tacos and they were good but expensive, Ceviche was disappointing though and plate was small

Great place for drinks and a bite to eat. Just a block up from the beach with outdoor seating, this place has good food, reasonably priced. We can't wait to go back again.

We have been to this restaurant 3 times and enjoyed it every time. They are known for their wide selection of beers. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun. The menu has some very unusual choices. We have tried something different every time and we were never disappointed. They have a great outdoor patio. The service is excellent and very helpful... More
