“BRUNCH- a great surprise”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Went to Saturday brunch which we didn't know they had. Mainly couples and families.

Some interesting breakfast offerings including some things we had never seen. perfect sized portions of well made, great tasting food. Good, strong coffee-- the staff never let our cups get close to empty before they refilled them..

Service is great- they have trained their staff well & they work as a team, so several servers refilled coffee and took away plates. Wait staff seemed to be the standard micro brewery/sports bar servers--- nice looking, shapely early 20's girls in tight t-shirts and shorts-- with personality and who care about customer service..

We will not miss this next time: We did find out until we were finishing our meal, but a big brunch draw is the "Bloody Mary Bar": they give you a glass of vodka and ice-- and you make your own Bloody Mary choosing from the many "fixins": they have in their "Bloody bar"

“Can't Go Wrong”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

This spot has a really great selection of beers along with good food to match. I would strongly recommend going here (by foot) if staying in the hotels on this side of the park.

“Good Sports Bar at the Beach”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Social Tap is a good sports bar within walking distance of the ocean. The staff is particularly excellent. A good place for the game or nighttime drinking and eating on the outdoor patio. The food is fine and drinks are good. A real addition to the Ventura scene.

“Awesome in every way”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

1. Great "upscale street food". Can't beat their tacos;
2. Great craft cocktails;
3. Nice outdoor patio, with heaters to warm you when the desert night turns cold;
4. Beautiful, friendly waitresses on two different occasions.
5. You know a restaurant is good when its staff comes back when they're off duty to eat, drink, and hang out with friends. On my second visit there, saw our waitress from a prior visit sitting with her friends, having a great time. Good sign.
