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

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.
