Great spot

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.

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.

Really lovely Fish Restaurant of which I am biased as my friend Anna works there! We visited whilst on a trip to Ventura from the UK. The food was fabulous and so was the service, and you couldn't ask for a better location - right at the beginning of the pier.

This restaurant has some of the best seafood we ate in Ventura, but they open only after 3:00 pm but there other restaurant downstairs was very good also but you have to wait on yourself as they have no waiters on the lower level.

We have come to Eric Ericsson's Fish Co for years and always enjoy the food and the view. The vibe is great being on the pier and depending on the weather you can dine in our outside. The food is priced great and the seafood is always fresh and delicious. Good assortment of drinks and beers. Faves are Tuna on... More

Excellent fish taco! You order and then pick up and take it to you table which is fine but the indoor seating was a bit disappointing because all of tables are high tops (short people don't do well on a stool with their feet dangling) except along the sides where you are lined up in a row. There were six... More

We loved the idea of eating at the ocean. If only the food had been more memorable. For what we paid we thought the portions were on the small side. Coconut shrimp was just too greasy. It could have been great, and maybe it is sometimes, but not the evening we were there.

We eat at the bar upstairs, same great food, although now it is known as Beach House Fish. Amazing happy hour choices every week day, and until close on Tuesdays. I am addicted to their shrimp sliders, their ahi tacos, and crispy calimari. Happy hour drinks offer quite a few choices. I have never been disappointed, and the sunset views... More
