Nice little restaurant with a full bar in the Ventura Marina. I love their lobster bisque, but due to the economy, they only serve it during the peak months between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Thecrab dip was fantastic, the clam chowder was pretty good, but that's the end of the positives. The shrimp in the stew was heavily overcooked, the fettuccine alfredo came out as chicken instead of shrimp, the seafood skewers were cold, and the salad was brought out late enough to be dessert. The food was way overpriced for the quality, and... More

We should have known when all the other restaurants had long lines and this one only had a few customers. Its a nice looking place except the bathroom isn't inside its in the outside mall. We were waited on immediately but then waited about 40 minutes for our food. We had already finished our drinks before the food came out... More

Be sure to come here if you want a fun meal. Good bar and nice folks. Atmosphere a bunch. Great place to spend a couple hours with a friend or 5.

First time in my life I returned a meal was at the Spinnaker. The Spinnaker is in the Ventura Harbor which is usually quiet even on the weekends. We were not planning on eating at the Spinnaker but every other restaurant had a long wait due to a local prom. It should have been a red flag that the Spinnaker... More

Lots of mediocre food and untrained workers.... nothing like the old Spinnaker. Menu looks like it was put together by someone who wanted to serve a wide variety of chain style food. Do not waste your time or money.

Wish I would have read the reviews before we went there! Old piece of chicken next to our table. The waitress was terrible. Brought out all the food separately and kept forgetting things. Maybe if she would stop chatting so much with her friend. The cheese steak was totally soggy. Yeck! The calamari was just overcooked stringy, rubbery rings. Yeck!,... More

The service was terrible and hard to understand when there was only one other table with four people. Forgetful waitress!!!!!! Terrible crab cakes had to send them back. Part of order was forgotten. Everything was wrong! Too many excuses from waitress. Nothing else could go wrong as it was all wrong!!!
