There were no complaints from our table. The food was great. The Bloody Mary's were good. I recommend the Winchester Original burger. It was a nice and relaxing lunch. The waitresses are very kind and helpful.

Enjoyed dinner here with 3 friends. They have lots of variety on their menu. One of my friend had the bison burger. She really enjoyed it. They also have a huge beer and ale selection. Service was excellent.

On a recent trip to Ventura to celebrate my birthday, we stumbled on this late night gem. We got on to a late start that evening--we had first taken a stroll on the Promenade, near the Ventura Pier. By the time we were ready for dinner it was 8 pm. We went first to Ventura Harbor Village and we struck... More

Husband had read about the tri tip steak and was looking forward to ordering that. I ordered the lamb leg chop. We both had the baked potato with sour cream and chives which were very tasty. Husband found the tri tip lsteak a little tough and disappointing. My lamb chop was okay. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Had a business lunch here and was very happy with the food and service. They specialize in burgers and have a few items such as elk and bison burgers that you don't usually see. I had the turkey burger and enjoyed it very much. The feel of the restaurant is very welcoming and friendly and many people were sitting outside... More

This quaint eatery is in the heart of downtown Ventura. Parking is always an issue in the downtown area, but once done there are plenty of places to "hang out" or dine out. We visited Winchesters midweek for dinner, arriving just as happy hour was ending. Our server winked as she slipped our drinks in just in time. They have... More

I'm a burger enthusiast. I search for great burgers everywhere I travel. I had the Outlaw Burger with a 50/50 patty and it was nothing short of incredible. One of the best burgers I've ever had. Great bar selection, great staff and the owner walks around and personally checks on the guests. This was my third trip to Winchester's and... More

This is my go to in Ventura for my Ribeye. Service is always great and food is excellent. This was probably my close to 100th steak in their close to 20 years in business. Always a great place....

We went here for the first time on July 3 and were blown away with how good the meal was. With only a week in the Ventura area, we decided to make a second trip...which turned out to be a completely different experience. Medium rare steak was brought out cold in the center, no one bothered to ask until very... More

Hi Dennis~ I'm sorry to hear your 2nd visit was not up to our usual standards. We certainly always aim higher, and are disappointed when we miss the mark. I hope the rest of your visit was great, and that we might get another chance if you are ever out this way again. All the best, JR More

More than just a great steakhouse, Winchesters serves up the freshest seafood, succulent chicken, and even some exotic meats like venison, buffalo, and elk. But don’t forget about those Certified Angus Beef™ steaks. Whether it’s the massive Rib-Eye, the petite Top Sirloin, the New York or Tri-Tip they’re always thick and juicy and grilled to perfection. Lighter fare includes great burgers, salads and grilled sandwiches. Their forty draft beers along with extensive Wine and Martini lists will round out a truly memorable meal. Two heated patios and ample parking available.
