Great view

You can't beat the view on the outside patio of Eric Ericsson's. We have been there several times and always enjoy it. Nice for lunch or happy hour. Good happy hour prices. Food is very good. Service is usually good but we have had a few slow servers.

well things change, and sometimes for the worse. Eric C clearly did need an upgrade but they blew it. they should have stayed their course as a table service dining restaurant and instead took the lead by complementing beach house tacos informal walk up experience. we were expecting a lure fish house experience - table service and fresh fish and...

For me it has been hit and miss as far as food quality and service.. It is on Ventura Pier and has wall to wall windows, so the location and view does not get much better.... been there 10 or more times over the past 3 years and about half the time it is great and the other half it... More

The civiche is wonderful!! They have a great happy hour with $2.50 premium draft beers and a great selection of bottled beers. Always look forward to coming here when I'm in Ventura.

Eric Ericsson's use to be a nice restaurant on the pier. I didn't go there frequently but it was a nice place to take out of town guests. Now, the restaurant has Beach House Fish, it's fast casual downstairs with limited table service on the upper deck. The upper deck part has an even more limited menu that's more like... More

The restaurant is set on the Ventura pier over the sandy beach. They serve the best fresh fish around in a great atmosphere. The food, drinks and service are all what you would hope for.

Stopped here to watch a beautiful sunset from the upper deck while having some appetizers and drinks. View can't be beat as you watch the waves come in and off in the distance the Channel Islands on the horizon. Fun to watch the kiteboarders and surfers. The appetizer offering was a "build your own boat" of various small dishes which... More

Beautiful weather in November with the freshest fish. Delicious options from cod to lobster, ahi, swordfish, and more. You can choose your fish, then turn it into a sandwich, a salad, a burrito, and even pasta. Has a great little bar and the view of the ocean is unbeatable.

This place has really gone downhill. Last visit the food was just plain awful and the service was soso. Can't beat the view though!

My Wife and I live in walking distance from this restaurant and frequent it often. A favorite thing to do is go there for a bowl of clam chowder and bread with a glass of wine and watch the sunset from their outdoor protected patio upstairs. You can get a nice light meal with tip for about $ 25. Surfers... More
