This is a great place for good beer in Ventura. The food is also really good, Ahi egg roles and fried calamari being my favorite. The staff is very helpful and nice.

Great place to relax and get a bite. Easy, friendly patrons at the bar and at the tables, and the staff was relaxed but attentive to everyone. We liked the freshness of both our salads and the fish. Overall and nice place to duck in and out of, even if you don't get a beer.

Stopped here for an early dinner one evening while on a business trip and had a fantastic dinner. Not only were the servers very knowledgeable about their menu they were very interested in helping as well. I chose the Hamburger with fig preserves, bacon, blue cheese...it was amazing! Maybe one of the top 3 burgers that I have eaten in... More

Anacapa serves very good craft beer, also really nice happy hour fish tacos and tamales. Outdoor seating. Smells a bit bad inside! I wonder why? Worth visiting!

I've been here with my husband and daughters a few times and we've always had a good experience. Seating is a little tight but we always have great service, my husband is always happy with his beer recommendations and we are always happy with our food choices, our service and overall experience. I have always had the Teriyaki Salmon Salad... More

Good food, good service and a fabulous magician. What a surprise, just after we ordered a magician came to our table to entertain us. Still can't figure out how he did it. We recommend the house brewed rootbeer.

Burger was super greasy, calamari was rubbery, fish and chips have no flavor, and beer was tasteless. Service was good but food terrible. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

The Santa Rosa Red is the best beer they have but the rest are solid beers. We didn't eat here but the food looked & smelled really good. Wonderful service, the girls were awesome.

When we first looked in looked packed but once inside realised it was much bigger than it looked. There's seating at the bar if you just want drinks plus a larger eating area. Craft beers were good choice of food excellent and not to pricey. Great friendly service too.

Thank Alan T
