The food was very good, the ambiance is nice and service was decent. Girls at front door were very accommodating and friendly. Don't get there too late on a weekend or you will wait a while

I really enjoyed this restaurant. The restaurant has an awesome patio and 805 beer on draft (you will love it!). The taco's are fantastic with a great variety of meat options. I was told that the owner is a little bit of a celebrity and was on the Gordon Ramsay show. Great food and patio!!

Social tap is a high quality structure located right at the beach at offers good bear on tap and better than normal bar food. You can get a nice piece of fish on a salad for a reasonable price or healthy chicken tacos. They also have the standards...burgers and fries. It is always crowded. Lots of big screens. When the weather is warm, it is a great place to have a beer because the whole place opens up so you can enjoy e breeze.

I came here because of their "famous chef" Adrien Nieto and I was disappointed, Nachos were bland, and Tacos tasted like a day or 2 old. Good selection of beer but not enough to keep me here

If you happen to find yourself in Ventura and craving the comfortable beach hangout scene of San Diego then you're in luck. Social Tap offers great, though not vast, selection of beer, wine & spirits and a great social scene. Watch out going to early on Friday or else you'll get I tangled with one of the local over-the-hill land sharks. Food was decent and reasonably priced.

If you're on the waiting list watch out! The duo of peroxide blondes took our number down, stating that it would be 25min. After 30min, having heard nothing and upon looking over to the hostess stand they were seating a larger party as they walked through the door who didn't have a reservation. After asking where we were on the list they replied that we were still on the list and as soon as a table opened we would be seated. Little flustered, I had to point out three tables that were empty and cleaned. The beach blond simply giggled and apologize in the form of "Oops!" Before seating us at one of the available tables. Over the place is great but keep an eye on the waiting list.
