Good brews, great service, fantastic food

Went here for a late lunch with two friends. The waitress was at our table within two minutes. I requested a taste of two brews - no problem. Chose one of the IPA's - the red was a bit heavy for me - for lunch anyway. Between the three of us, we ordered a vegie sandwich, BLT and ahi flautas.... read more

We love this place for a relaxing meal. The outside tables are great for people watching. I always love their salad selections and wine while my partner always enjoys their excellent beers and Happy Hour.

Ideal for casual relaxing meal and beer tasting. The staff was very friendly and helpful with beer samples and their knowledge of the brew. Food was good and it has a very comfortable atmosphere. We will return.

Every time I go to ABC, I try to order something else, but I always get the turkey, Brie and cranberry relish sandwich. It's that good. This restaurant is in a good location on Main Street in downtown Ventura and they have covered outdoor dining out front. They also have onsite brewed and local beers.

If you want some solid food, try this place. Their steaks are great and so are their sandwiches. The service is excellent and the seats are soft.

A really nice place with good food and a friendly, knowledgeable bartender. Although they have a few tables outside, inside is the place to be. It's an old building with great character and the huge serving vats behind the bar add to the setting. The wings were delicious and they have some very good beers. As with most breweries, the...

I loved their IPA, but moreover, their food is delicious! We were not expecting a great meal - just a nice variety of beers brewed on premises. Service was good, prices right - but worth many more trips to this restaurant/brewery!

After burning a thousand or so calories cycling we were thirsty and hungry so this restaurant was perfect for our needs. We were with friends who had dogs with them and we were lucky to get an outside table (note the outside seating is limited to about 12 -14 people). The Wet Hop Blonde beer was perfect to start with... More

It was a Friday night and we were tired & hungry. Luckily for us Anacapa had a solitary free "high" table and, so, we went for it. We were not to be disappointed and enjoyed a lovely meal with fish for my wife and a sea food pasta for myself. The latter, of which, was a struggle to finish. The... More

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
