Description: 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.

An extra extra plus is the chocolate store is right across the the street it has fabulous home made chocolates. Back to Winchesters, Wife and I had the ribeye steak. It was cooked perfectly and very flavorful. My wife has celiac and our... More

We find the restaurant to be a coveniently located downtown Ventura restaurant with easy parking, better than average food, a nice outdoor eating area, rustic decor. The prices are a bit high , in our opinion, for the quality--but not terribly so.

I would classify the food at Winchesters as just OK. The fish did not look or taste fresh. The steak did not appear to be the best cuts. Wine is a little overpriced but it was a good size pour. On the plus side, service was excellent.

As an example, all of our beef is either Choice or Prime, and the local seafood broker we use is down at the L.A.... More

From Illinois and stopped to eat here last night to meet with friends. Service was great, food and prices were good. Somewhat typical bar type dining, but would recommend to others. It was quiet, which I believe was only due to it being a Monday. Would go back and definitely recommend others. Nice open viewing since they slide the doors... More

Good food, great beer selection, indoor or outdoor eating available right on Main Street Ventura. Love to drive up from Los Angeles to eat their tri tip sandwich and dessert. Love the ecletic décor.
