“Solid quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We had lunch at The Lure Fish House and everything was quality from the sourdough rolls that came with the meal, to the organic black bean side to the nautically themed ambiance. I loved my seared ahi that was encrusted with a mixture of herbs. They were also very attentive to my dairy allergy. I would go back in a heart beat.

“Surprised by technique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I love oysters. I usually order them raw but the server was so passionate about their charbroiled oysters I had to try them. I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of flavor this technique brought to them. To be clear, they are not thoroughly cooked. They are hot but certainly very rare. I ordered a variety of 6 different oysters and I was able to distinguish the different flavors of each kind. They come with sauteed spinach and it was an absolutely delicious lunch.

“Great service and ambience = food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Really great staff and fun bar. Roomy booths and dining room. Good place to hang out. Appetizers were good, but entrees were smallish, not special. Plus they charge you for "upgraded" sides like brussel sprouts. Kinda expensive for the quality you get.

“You Can't Go Wrong!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Visit any of the Lure Fish Houses in Ventura, Camarillo or Thousand Oaks and you are sure to enjoy a great seafood meal at a reasonable price. Go for it!
I love the Happy Hour discounts and the Crab Cakes are amazing. Their bread is good and the service good. But there can be a wait as all of these restaurants are very popular.
Anything you order is a hit!
