Eat downstairs

We ended up going two nights in a row. First night was upstairs a la carte - the menu seems restrictive when you consider the can cook your fish however you like on the ground floor. Atmosphere was a lot more subdued too. Second night age downstairs. Good food, some portions were large and others... read more

The Happy Hour is a great value! We enjoyed $5.00 cocktails & $3.00 beers. Our cocktails were amazing! The happy hour menu included delicious fish & chips and a platter of oysters. Both plates were generous. The location is perfect...overlooking the ocean. What a wonderful way to spend a late afternoon. Afterwards, we walked on the pleasant boardwalk to our... More

I had the fish and chips (of coarse) and it was some of the best I've had. My son had a salmon burrito and couldn't stop raving about it. Local beer on tap and delicious appetizers. If you haven't been, you gotta try it out.

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
