Good location in downtown Ventura with immense nearby free parking. A must when bar-hopping. Beer, beer, beer, but also renowned for great burgers. Stay for the music.

Went here for a beer, stayed for a fantastic burger and really good entertainment. Not sure if this was a weekly thing, but there was a band there on this particular Sunday afternoon called "Mid Life Crisis". Cool name and they played quite a lot of my favorite classic rock songs and had the crowd up on their feet dancing.... More

If you are going to eat a burger, Bombay's is the absolute best. I rarely indulge in s burger. When I do, it is usually disappointing because I famous for my cowboy burgers at home. I simply cannot outdo the burgers from Bombays. Go! You will love it!

On a Wednesday night, a very good jazz band played, and the drinks were good and reasonably priced. Did not try the food,mal though it looked good.

I ate here with a large group of people and it was a super fun and delicious night. The burgers were unbelievable...I had the Bombay burger with fries. The fries were good, non-greasy and perfectly seasoned. Everyone loved their choice. I really wish I lived nearby cause I would go often. Seriously a good burger!

Just had a great night at the Bombay Bar and Grill. They cater to all ages with different bands coming in at different times of the night. We were there to catch Shaky Feelin'. The music was good for dancing and dance we did. We got a stamp at the door and wandered up to Main Street to check out... More

We had an over night stay in Ventura and by pure chance we called in. The atmosphere was vibrant as it was a blues night. We ordered the Buffalo wings at 50 cents and onion rings at their regular price,they were absolutely delicious and massive portions. The waitress was really great she gave us local directions to the local mall... More

For evening entertainment (especially their blues nights) are fun. The food and drink selections are very good, but the service is not always good. Sometimes it takes a while for their servers to clear the tables. Prices are OK.

We ate here on a Saturday for lunch, its only open during the evenings on weekdays so if you want lunch here you must come over a weekend. The burgers are very good, ginormous in fact! I loved the BBQ burger with onion rings and lots of toppings. Also had the fried pickles which were very good, if unusual! Frankly... More
