More than just a great steakhouse, Winchesters serves up the freshest seafood, succulent chicken, and even some exotic meats like venison, buffalo, and elk. But don’t forget about those Certified Angus Beef™ steaks. Whether it’s the massive Rib-Eye, the petite Top Sirloin, the New York or Tri-Tip they’re always thick and juicy and grilled to perfection. Lighter fare includes great burgers, salads and grilled sandwiches. Their forty draft beers along with extensive Wine and Martini lists will round out a truly memorable meal. Two heated patios and ample parking available.

Winchesters not only provides you with a good place to stop and eat, it also maintains over 50 different kinds on beer on tap. Order their sampler plank which will allow you to try 20 different shots of beers. Parking is slightly limited and is located behind the facility.

I got the petite steak and it was cooked to perfection. The beans are delightful and the garlic mashed potatoes were just the perfect amount of garlic. Washed it down with a good smoked porter. Perfect meal to end my day

I've been here a few times, a lot of people really like it. This last visit it was nearly impossible to find a place to park, the lot next door is not for the restaurant. I've found the food to be tasty, most any kind of alcohol you might fancy is available. I think the place is pricey, but I... More

There are European countries smaller than the ribeye I ordered here not too recently. Did not think I would be able to finish it. It was so good I did. Crowd was rowdy and in many cases drunk. Service was good -for Ventura.

This is a meat/barbeque joint with draft beer and the like. Fries are good here. On Friday/Saturday/Sunday nights, the bar scene is good if you are looking to find someone. The décor is a la Tommy's Joint in San Francisco. You can come here earlier with family, no problem. This place is fun! Cost is only $$. If you thought... More
