Shepherds pie, chicken pot pie, corned beef and cabbage, potato croquettes. It's all good- just don't get a burger. Their ground beef tastes fine but their buns are flimsy and fall apart. If you're looking for a night-time bar scene, make Dargans one of your stops. If you want a quiet meal on the weekend and it's after 8:00, choose... More

Husband and I spent a few days down at Ventura Beach for vacation. He found this place using TripAdvisor. We got there, and it was like being in the pubs back in Dublin or in York, England. Loved it. We just missed the 'big dinner crowd,' as we got there about 830pm at night. Tim ordered the Shephards pie, (which... More

We had an excellent meal and it was reasonably priced. Wait staff was excellent and the atmosphere loud and noisy with everyone have a great time. Probably the best fish and chips I have had recently. My wife had a fish stew that was outstanding. We really like the pub atmosphere, loud but fun. If you want quiet go elsewhere.

The food and atmosphere are very good. The waitress was efficient and knowledgeable of the menu. They have a good variety of Irish and regional brews as well as interesting cocktails with an Irish theme. The fish and chips battered in Harp are among the best found stateside.

Been here many times, and will continue to frequent. The food is absolutely amazing!! It is consistent, large portions and fair pricing. Bar has a wide variety of drink options and the service is always friendly. Would highly recommend Dargan's in Ventura to anyone!

If you like Irish food you will probably like this place. Located in Downtown Ventura on Main St. A great location while shopping or just walking the downtown area. My favorites are Bangers and Mash and Shepard's Pie. My wife is from England so I have been enjoying good Irish and English food for years. Don't know about the spirits,... More

Just happened by this Pub and we were happily surprised by how good the food was. They have all sorts of different beer and ale. Also, there own whiskey. The Irish stew was so good. It was great fun.

Great Irish pub food. Happy hour also gives you half price apps! Definitely great food and at a good value. And the location in the centre of the downtown area is perfect.

I think Dargan's is the best for top notch bar pub food. The clams are a favorite of mine. The Shepard's Pie is grubbelicous the pot pies, roast beef dinner, I ate the bangers and mash one time even though I don't like pig. My GF really likes the pear and brie salad. The Guiness is always poured correctly with... More
