Visit Garmans at least once a year. Love the food and atmosphere. Service is always top notch. If you're ever out near Santa Paula Garmans is the place for great food and good times.

The building used to be a pool hall on historic Main Street. The building is at it was and much of that atmosphere has been preserved ,but it's a lot nicer now. Have been there to eat as a couple and to several group events. Only once has the service been too slow. We've always been pleased with the food.... More

Santa Paula's version of TV's "Cheers"... It has a wonderful variety of food, including inventive mixes of Irish food with the local culture such a Irish Tacos (high-quality corned beef & cabbage on tacos with cilantro dressing --YUM!). Love the Shepherd's Pie and the Dublin Stew served with fresh bread. Also have fish (great Fish n Chips), salads & boxties.... More

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!
