Went for a Happy Hour. The menu is $5 for 6-7 selections. We ordered some and all were very good. Friendly stuff.

We stopped there by chance, on our way to Santa Barbara. We had a very nice lunch. I ordered the salmon club sandwich and found it delicious. The beer was great as well. There are plenty of other menu options I would have tried. Very friendly staff.

We ate here for dinner while visiting family in Ventura. All of us thought our dinner was great. Unfortunately when we were there they were out of a few of their beers we wanted to try, but I realize this is a smaller brewery so it was understandable.

I had a wonderful salad with several grains including quinoa & avocados. Really yummy & very filling. My husband had the pulled pork sandwich which he really enjoyed. Anacapa has an extensive...

With so much to chose from on Main st. It can be difficult to find the right spot. Having been here a few times I can safely say that we like this establishment. The food is very good pub style and the beverage are brewed on the premises.

The Staff are very friendly and attentive. I love getting their shirts and glasses around St. Patrick's Day for my husband. They are... More

I assume the beer selection changes as the run through them. They only sell pints and flights so if you want to sample you have to take everything they have. I prefer being able to get a single taster instead of the flight because there are usually one or two I don't have an intrest in. And the flight I... More

Anacapa Brewing Company, 472 E. Main Street, Ventura, CA 93001 This is a relatively small restaurant and bar with real, functional brewing equipment as they brew their own ales here on site!!! Anacapa Brewing Company brew around 30 different beers and I have to say it is nice to come into and taste the wares of a micro-brewery. The owner,... More

Went to this place for chicken and waffles, and the waffles, were cold and tasteless. The chicken that came with the meal was great. The waitress exchanged the waffles for fries, that were good. The Service people here are really on top of things, we wanted to sit outside and she made sure the heater was on, and got everything... More
