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.

Some may disagree but I think Anacapa serves the best burger at a Ventura sit-down restaurant (I'm still debating if it's better than The Habit). Also has good pizzas and sandwiches, though, I'd stay away from the steak. Cute, smaller spot with exposed brick walls and a selection of about 8-10 local microbrews. Very small wine selection. Great Main Street... More

Our server, Chantal, was awesome. She made great recommendations, was very attentive, but not intrusive, polite, friendly, accurate, and delivered the check at the end of the meal without a wait. The food was pretty good for a pub. I had the Cobb salad and my friend had the Filet Medallions. Both were very good. The atmosphere was predictably loud,... More

My husband and I came in for dinner last Saturday night. Main Street was less crowded than we'd expected for a Saturday night in July but the place we wanted had a huge wait, so we ended up here. Great find! My husband loved the beer selection, and we both really enjoyed our dinner (I had pulled pork, which was... More

My family had an early dinner here last weekend. We tried the beer flights and enjoyed tasting several of the house brewed beers. (Did not care for the sour beer!) Our table had three burgers and one salad. All of the food was very good, just fairly predictable. My salad was called a Louisiana Chicken Salad. I enjoyed it very... More

A local cop recommended this place. It's a small brewery and cafe. The beer was excellent. They'll describe all the selections in detail for you. The food was also great and the prices were really good. Very friendly atmosphere.

We stopped by for lunch knowing that our husbands would love the beer (and they did)! My sister and I both had the salmon teriyaki salad and our husbands had the pulled pork. Both were very good, but the salad was a bit salty. The portion of salmon was really large and cooked perfectly. The pulled pork was good, especially... More

12 people, Friday night, no reservation and within minutes, we were all seated and served. The Staff was on top of it. Very courteous girls working the hostess desk and our group. Apps and brews were top notch. I recommend the sampler flight of brews. Great job A.B.C.!!

This is your typical brewery with the typical menu. Only reason why I didn't review it higher. It was definitely a good meal but just wasn't anything out of this world. Good beer however so really no complaints. Would definitely go back there!

Fish tacos were amAzing, and customizable. Service was excellent and dog-friendly. Great beer even though I discovered an allergy to the rye pale ale.
