Pier Perfect Cocktail Hour

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... read 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.

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

Love this place! They have a fine selection of craft beers in bottle and on tap as well as wine. The fancy menu drinks are NOT worth it! The servers are great. We tried The Stuffed chilies and they were wonderful. Great place to relax and look at the ocean!

This seafood restaurant benefits from an awesome view of the ocean and the Ventura pier it's on. This alone makes it worth visiting. The food is ok. Not really great but good enough. My wife and I both ordered the cod fish and chips. The fish was really fresh but the batter was oily and a bit over fried. The... More

After a pleasant stroll along Ventura Pier we picked this place for lunch - and certainly were not disappointed. Freshly prepared food, piping hot, served on paper lined metal dishes. Interesting potatoes with crunchy deep fried garlic pieces ensured everyone kept a wide berth from us, but tasted amazing. We sat at front, enjoying the pier and sea views, quaffing... More

We were staying just next door at the Crowne Plaza and wanted to catch the sunset and get something to eat, so this place was perfect. We were fortunate that it was a Monday night so it wasn't busy and we had the choice of sitting upstairs in the restaurant or ordering at the counter. We chose the counter service... More
