I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about the dining room at Ventura's greenhouse. The drinks are always wonderful and made by Kenny! The hostess Erica always treats us like family and the wait staff, especially Andrew, Tori and Tara are the best and always know what we want! Our all time favorite place while at the shore for sure!

We ate at the inside restaurant. Great that they now take reservations. Can't go wrong with the Caesar salad and veal Ventura. It's veal medallions with shrimp. Always tasty.

We had the best meal at Venturas! From start to finish it was excellent. The Lobster bisque soup was a perfect starter with lumps of lobster. A must place to eat!

Enjoyed a good lunch here on a very hot day. Food and service were exactly what is expected on a busy beach day. Most seating is outside with much under cover. Great ocean views from many tables

We grabbed a quick bite late on a Thursday and the place was nearly full. Service was good. Staff was nice and accommodating. Burger, crab cakes, and regular slices of pizza were all pretty good. Nothing that was so good that I'd make a trip back, but nothing bad either.

I am pretty picky about my pizza, however the greenhouse makes a consistantly good one. Eat in or take out both good. I also like their chic Cesar salads.. Great drinks on the deck. Great place to hang out with friends and or family.
