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.

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.

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.

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

Whether you are a local looking for some good eats or a traveller passing through town, if you are on the hunt for a great grill, this is it. First off, the service was phenomenal. Every server and the manager made it their personal business to ensure that everyone was taken care of. Seriously: if we raised our heads and... More

Food selection was varied and tasted great. Some not so usual selection included a elk or buffalo burger, fried duck strips encrusted with almonds, freshly made non greasy sweet potato chips, a huge selection of beers and the list goes on! Atmosphere was great with lot's of TV but low/no sound allowing you to talk with friends and quiet country... 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.

I came here with coworkers recently. The service was fantastic and attentive. The food was very good. We were all happy with this restaurant. Next time I'm in Ventura I'll have dinner here again.

Wanted a distinctive spot for dinner and found this restaurant. Free parking along side the restaurant was handy. This restaurant has both inside and outside areas and along Main Street adds to it attractiveness. From the menu we chose the mushroom appy with a glass of merlot and the elk burger with a nice dark ale. Plenty to eat and... More

We came here with our friends from England straight from LAX. We just came for a quick drink and snack on our drive up north. Of course being English, they wanted to taste the local beers and stuffed potatoes. The beer was cold, the potatoes were delicious, and the servers were very friendly and nice. We wandered inside and enjoyed... More
