Happy Hour - busy as usual. I hardly ever complain about a meal, but this time I just had to make a comment. Yesterday I ordered "Fried Clam Strips". It sounded good and I was real hungry having had little to eat all day. Then...More

We stopped in for lunch. The service was not quite what we were looking for. Our server did not have much time for us. The food was good but we have had better.

I've been very happy with the fish and chips here. The best time to visit is when it's warm enough to sit outside on the patio. The scenery is fabulous with the goings-on at the harbor.

This place was dirty. Attention to detail. Definitely a local scene, and the locals obviously do not care. Not a great tourist stop unless you like substandard everything. Took 10 minutes to get addressed, another 8 to get seated, and another 5 to get asked...More

Location, location, location. The view is worth the trip. Food is pretty good too. Steamed clams are a winner. Also good for drinks and appetizers. The Santa Barbara location has a more upscale vibe but often features long waits for a table.

Frankly the food, as much food in marina's tends to be is middle of the road. Not excellent, not bad. The location of this place makes it extra nice. We always wait for an outside table. Give them your number and they will text you...More

Excellent happy hour. Try to get a seat at the bar or table outside to enjoy the wonderful harbor view. All the food we ordered was great. Clam chowder, fish and chips, calamari and steamed clams. Service was fast and smiling.

Brophi Brothers’ terrace overlooking Ventura harbor is a nice hang out after a long day on the Channel Islands or the boat. The location is super casual and the beer and food selection decent. I highly recommend the Cioppino if you prefer a lighter fare...More

Only if you were on the corner of the patio closest to the ocean. The sun sets over the ocean so if you have an ocean view from the patio, you will see it.

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.
