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.

Local Favorite

This place has always been a local favorite. It has a great happy hour and a wide variety of beer on tap. Get the tri tip salad its huge and delicious. There is a covered patio with heaters when it is chilly out, and an outdoor area for the warmer days and nights.

We love this place! This was probably the best sirloin steak I've had in years, both for flavor and quality of the meat! My husband had the pork chops and raved about those too. Everything tasted great, from the wedge salad to the beans. Nice, relaxed indoor dining atmosphere with outdoor dining available and even with dogs welcome on the... More

I think it was about 9pm and downtown Ventura was already a ghost town. Most places had just stopped serving dinner, so one of the only choices left was Winchesters. The fare was so "you can get this food anywhere" that I only vaguely remember what we ordered. It wasn't at all bad, just blah. Maybe everyone at Winchesters just... More

Hi Jim, Thanks for taking the time to review. I'm sorry that you found our food "blah". We certainly strive for excellence in all we do. I can commiserate with the fact that downtown Ventura is not as vibrant as it once was, especially during the week. Nonetheless, while others have shortened their hours, we always keep our kitchen open... More

This is our third or fourth time at Winchesters, and their food is consistently good. We've enjoyed their Kobe beef burger and Winchester burger before. For the first time, I tried their petite tri-tip steak, and it was superb. The seasoning was perfect and it was cooked just as I'd ordered. The house beans were good, but a little spicy... More

Our last night in Ventura we were excited to have stumbled on this restaurant at the end of the street. The food was delicious, but the cheese cake was AMAZING! One of the best I've had anywhere. The only downside was it was difficult to find parking.

Great atmosphere fun food and drink. I love their buffalo burgers! It's a bit noisy but that's to be expected in this western style steak house/ watering hole.
