Description: We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Ventura & Santa Barbara Harbor. You'll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at these true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the "small" menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the "long" menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals' favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.

Friendly staff, reasonable pricing and good food. The fish is cooked to perfection. Not crazy about their rice. Side dishes are not special but most of their seafood choices are excellent and that is why I go to a seafood restaurant.

“Nice atmostphere”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

Love the simple tastes of fresh seafood. The view is fabulous at the harbor. Bring a light jacket, it can get cold down by the water. We are locals, and this is one of our go-to places.

“Fun on a Sunday afternoon at the bar”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Went in with my girlfriend and we sat up at the bar which looks right onto the harbor (beyond the outdoor dining area). They have the ability to open up the windows behind the bar so you get nice fresh air and never fel like you are some place stuffy. Had and shared oyster shooters, fried clams, beer shrimp boil and the salmon salad. Overall food was not spectacular but good. Also had three pretty well made spicy bloody marys. The bartender was upbeat and his service was very good. Pretty busy on a Sunday afternoon but you couldnt tell from our vantage point facing the hills of Ventura in the background and the harbor down below. Have been here several times before. They also have worthy clam chowda. :) Prices are a little steep but you should expect that from a seafood place by the water. By the way if you celebrate a birthday here they give the birthday boy/girl a shot of their choice (If they are over 21 of course).
