I had the special, my friend had a burger. The service was great and also the food. But what I liked the most was the bar: old fashioned and comfy.

Santa Paula closes their Main St. on the first Friday each month and there is a car show on the street. Garmin's is a convenient & yummy place to eat after viewing the cars. They have a good menu, prompt/friendly service and the food is good. We were visiting from out of town, but would eat there again.

over rated, over priced, 15 dollar fish tacos and greasy fish and chips, lots of movie star pics and sports tv's on walls, most people go to drink alcohol and yell at the sports teams, i guess its all about choice and selection but do not plan return there.

Thanks for taking the time to review but I believe you have our placed mixed up with next door. They have movie later pics and Tv's playing loud sports, not my place. Plus our fish n chips are $12.95. Bout environment is set for families in the old style of European pubs, hence we close early not for alcohol and... More

This is not so much an authentic Irish Pub; it's more of an Irish-American fusion, but the food is absolutely delicious! AND they have Guinness on tap! I also love how it's a family friendly atmosphere, yet feels like a bar, without having to hit a corporate chain like TGIF. The staff is fast, friendly and helpful. If you get... More

We stumbled into this pub on our recent trip to Santa Paula. Great drink selection! Nice atmosphere with sports TV. Good service and some really awesome food. Try the bread pudding it is fabulous, but you will need to share it is so huge!

I always enjoy having a meal (& a pint) at Garman's. Everything on the menu, I've enjoyed. The staff is great and the imported ales go down smooth.

This place is fantastic. As soon as you walk in you get that warming pub feel that you would see in movies after someone went to the same pub for 20 years. The aesthetics, food, service and beer are top notch. The have plenty of seating, live music, billiards and of course.... great beer.

But ^^^ they were just average. Heavy on cabbage but light on fish. Onion rings hand battered, pretty tasty. Brother said burger was great. We are shared warm, fresh Bread Pudding; enough for table of 8 to all get 2-3 bites. Large festive atmosphere on Main Street in downtown Santa Paula.

I've eaten here several times and always had a good meal. Tonight we did take out, a burger and chicken wrap. Well the burger was fine , not perfection but the chicken wrap was no more than a chopped salad on a overdone grilled wrap. Yes grilled! The chicken was dry, cheese could barely see or taste, no guacamole (as... More
