Great place on the Ventura Harbor. Super location in the shopping center with a great view. Indoor, patio, bar and window seating. All great. Primarily seafood and burger options; all very good. Full bar and great cocktail menu.

Went to Brophy Bros on our last night in Ventura for Happy Hour and had a spectacular view of the marina and some shrimp and clams that were out of this world. Tasty and cooked just right and the bread they supplied was great for sopping up the juices from them both!!

We had a family birthday diner. Things we ordered were of good taste and there was more then enough. Staff was very helpful and came by on a reguarly base. Although it was very busy they took the time to listen and answering questions we had.

Broody Bros was recommended to us for good seafood. I had the Sea Bass & my wife had the Mahi Mahi. The Sea Bass was tasty but the Mahi Mahi was bland. The service was good and the view of the harbor was also good. Sour dough bread was overrated. Good not spectacular as we were told. Nice place to... More

We have loved Brophy Bros. for years! Clam Chowder is always great, Fried Calamari, Mahi Mahi Dinner, Hot Combo, Ceviche... I could go on! If you sit outside, you have a nice view of the harbor. If you go anytime after 5 on a Friday or Saturday, definitely make a reservation! They get VERY busy! Enjoy!

My wife and I came here for our birthday lunch. Great food and wonderful service! Nice views of the marina with the boats coming and going. We sat out side on a sunny July day. We both bought shirts from this place. We will be back! Yummy!

We went to Brophy Bros for lunch, you could smell grease walking up the sidewalk. Inside it was dark (patio seating full at the time), and incredibly noisy with plates clattering and kitchen doings as the kitchen is open to the dining room. The hostess looked like she just got out of bed and never once smiled in greeting. We... More

My son took me here for my birthday. Ironically, I had never been to this local Seafood Restaurant. I was impressed that they could make fish and chips out of Salmon, my favorite fish, and it was yummy! But...the Sourdough Bread was mouth watering delicious, and I loved their whipped butter. My meal was relaxing overlooking the Ventura Harbor and... More

Good fish restaurant on Ventura's harbour. We had a cold crab and shellfish mix as appetizer, a bit too spicy. As main dish we had a crab cake (very original taste), a grilled piece of swordfish (not particularly tasty) and a Ahi fish. Waiters have to slow down in serving: they brought the entreès while we were still eating our... More

We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Ventura & Santa Barbara Harbor. You'll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at these true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the "small" menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the "long" menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals' favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.
