“Good Family Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

My kids love this place so much, they beg me to make the same foods for them when we eat at home. No joke. GREAT spot, good simple menu, and good beer on tap. One tip, do NOT get the creme brulee to go - we made that mistake once. doesnt work. But this place is great food, and value. Fries are kick a*s. [no profanity on this site]. :)

“What a delightful find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

At Yelp's suggestion, we found this restaurant on our first evening. Salads were great. Hubby's Chicken Alfredo was rich, creamy. More than anything I loved the atmosphere: sitting outside on the brick patio, under a canopy of trees with the twinkling of lights in the trees and the stars beyond. (Sigh!)

“My new favorite place to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Went to Papa Lennon's on Saturday night for the first time. It's very casual and a great atmosphere if you sit outside. Salads, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, beer and wine. The salads looked big. Sandwiches were all good and our friend really liked his pizza. The music was a 60s guy playing great acoustic music (from the 60s). Papa Lennon's is not in "downtown" Ojai. Love the place.

“Funky lil place to eat near Ojai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Some outside dining, order and find a table but great food and lots of locals. Not touristy at all. It offers sort of Italian fare but the Garlic Fries should not be missed. Bring your breath mints.

“Great pizza and salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

We went here mid afternoon on a Saturday and it was very easy to order and our food was prepared right away, excellent flavors and great salads (all fresh ingredients), they also have beer on tap (I had one with a great apricot taste), so refreshing and perfect with our food. We will visit again when in the area; also prices were very good for the quality of food that we were served.
