Eating Over the Ocean.

A few years ago Ericsson's was located at the end of Seaward Ave.Ventura. Now it's on the Ocean itself. On a pier out over the water. The view at sunset is without compare. Ask for a table with a veiw. They have a counter in the entrance with a display of all the day's fresh catch. Charcoal... read more

Great views, even better food. We sat on the first floor and ordered coconut shrimp as an appetizer and they were amazing. Huge shrimp! Then my husband had a burrito and seafood mac and cheese; the mac was unbelievably good. I had seared ahi and jalapeño fritters and both were great. I highly recommend this place.

Chose this restaurant to be able to watch the ocean. Walked into this place from the pier. I wish we would have gone to the Taco Stand across the way. Expected a sit down place. Had to stand and figure out the complicated menu. Finally walked up and asked for help. The lady helped us choose our fish, then how... More

This restaurant has changed, not sure it's for the good. We have been coming to this restaurant for many years The highlight about this place is that it is on the pier in Ventura. Their menu has changed and their prices have gone up. Service was slow even on a Tuesday evening. If they were anywhere else other than the... More

Where is it Now? I loved going there for 10 years for their awesome Bloody Marys, fabulous beach views and cool breezes...

Gorgeous location and environment right on the Ventura pier. I go anyway just to sit outside on a summer day for drinks and frenchfries. The restaurant always smells fishy and I've had bad clams and crab there. Eat outside on the pier and stick to basics and a draft!

Back for a visit, this used to be our favorite restaurant, i guess the new owner decided to churn things up a bit, and it went from fine dining to modern yuck fare...we used to love the California clam bake bowl (now called steamer), not what it used to be, on a scale of 1-10, it went from ten to...

Beautiful view right on the pier, clean, variety of food and drink - fish is obviously awesome. Even picky kids like it.

Stopped in after a 5 mile hike for a sunset cocktail and discovered it was Happy Hour. You will need to pay attention to what floor you are on, what day it is and what time the Happy Hour starts...but hey that means it's always Happy Hour. The husband and I went up to the 2nd floor and sat at... More

We had been coming here for years, family birthdays and celebrations, when the restaurant was more upscale. It is now casual, which took us by surprise at first. But we have adjusted, and enjoy the new casual atmosphere. I can't remember the new name, but we LOVE eating here. We travel from the North end of the SFV to eat... More
