Pier lunch

Wonderful fresh fish, cooked in any style you pick, with salad, sides, etc. My grilled salmon on a ceasar salad was excellent.

Right on the Ventura Pier. Choose your fish and have it cooked any way you like. So many choices. Great place for families groups, just about anyone. Great atmosphere too.

We have visited Ventura twice and walked on the pier before, but this was the first time we ate at the fish restraint at the pier. We walked from our main street hotel and strolled along the beach and out onto the pier. We stopped for happy hour at the restaurant and ended up having a great fish fry and... More

It's very difficult to find a place to eat "on the beach" in Southern California. This is one of those places. Fabulous views from almost anywhere in the restaurant of the pier and ocean. Perfect for watching the sun go down. Great fresh fish offerings and nice happy hour pricing.

Inside - outside, you will be "on the beach". A great location with relaxed atmosphere, great food and simple service. Order from a great line-up of choices, pick a seat and wait for your buzzer to go off to retrieve your meal. A full bar is available too. I had the seared ahi taco. Fantastic tacos, however, a bit skimpy... More

Pick a fish, how do you want it? On pasta, like a taco, burrito, on a salad. Pick a side dish. On a visit to Ventura, I stopped at Eric Ericsons Fish on the Pier. It has been in Ventura for over 30 years, they may have changed the way to order off their menu, but the food was amazing.... More

This is a FUN dining experience on the Ventura Pier. (This restaurant is different from the Taco House (also on the pier)). We sat upstairs on the open-air portion of the deck over looking the Pacific. The area is partially shielded from winds by see-through partitions and what gentle-breeze reached us was just-right. We drank mango-jalapeno margaritas and icy-cold draft... More

This longtime fixture on the popular Ventura Pier continues to offer good seafood fare; it also has a happy hour menu upstairs. The venue offers good views of the Ventura Pier area including the local beach and promenade. Nice place at sunset.

Visit here every time we venture to Ventura. Great location at the entrance to the pier. Alway have a nice view of the beach and ocean. The fish tacos are a favorite.

Great spot for a snack and cocktail. We had the fried fish tacos in jalapeño batter and it was delish and the perfect amount for lunch. Service was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable of the area and very personable.
