I have been eating in this restaurant as I am in loved with their pulled pork. Very mouth watering and you would always come back for it. But lately, with the change of management or owner, the portion has reduced and the quality has been not as good as it was before. I will try it again a couple of... More

This is the only restaurant where I order beer, and it's the sampler served on a plank. Delicious. Also, great prime rib and burgers, which they will actually serve rare!

Sweet potatoes and onion rings were good, and I had the best sandwich I've ever had in my life, they call it the "Ojai". It was absolutely amazing. If you're into beer, it is only available there, they don't bottle it. My wife had the Brewhouse Chicken Stack, it was good too. Service was excellent, as were the people around... More

Steak was generous but tasteless but at least the beer washed it down nicely. Next time I'll skip the food.

Their outdoor eating area is very small, but we were able to get a table outdoors. Service was good, food was excellent. I would go again.

We had a very pleasant dinner at the Anacapa, with food much better than we would have anticipated in a pub. I had the vegetable muffalletta, which was spectacular, and my husband had the "brewhouse chicken stack," which he also enjoyed.

My wife and I were out shopping in downtown Ventura the other day and she wanted to take me here for lunch. She has been here several times with our daughter and friends but it was my first time. I liked the design, sort of like an old time tavern, with a long bar on one side and tables on... More

Had never been to the Ventura area before so checked out reviews here on ta and made the stop. Great tasting burger as well as Cuban Sandwich. Loved the spice on the fries. Beer was just as good as was the service.

The fish tacos at Happy Hour are one of the best buys in tow, Couple that with a handcrafter beer and you have an excellent early dinner at a fantastic price.

Although it has been awhile since my previous visit. Although the food was good, the beer and the service were suspect. Once one of the front runners of the craft beer movement, they have been passed by better breweries.
