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.

The best parts of my meal there were the view and the clam chowder. From the deck you have an lovely view of the harbor with some visiting tall sailing ships. Their clam chowder serving is generous and tasty.

After a very long and hard day we decided to treat ourselves to diner at Brophy Bros. in the marina. The staff was able to seat our party immediately (in spite of our group's large number-14 people). The wait staff quickly setup our tables, took our drink orders, provided bread and took our appetizer orders. The appetizers were very tasty, well presented and the right size. The menu isn't large but what they do have is all excellent. Our party ordered everything from simple salads, soup, seafood and steaks - there wasn't a disappointed person in our party. The next time we are in Ventura on business we will make this establishmnet a priority stop.

We were at this restaurant on Saturday, 1.19.13. There were a lot of people there. The atmosphere was nice. 60's music was nice. The view was exceptional over the harbor. The service was very attentive and friendly. The food was average. I had the swordfish which was not that great. The fries were some of the worst I have tasted. The cole slaw was average.My wife had a seafood pasta plate. She thought it was fine.
I do not believe I will return to this restaurant.

This my favorite seafood restaurant in the Ventura area. The prices are very good and the view of the harbor is great. My friend from Australia loves this restaurant!
Try the salmon or shrimp salad for a healthy, inexpensive meal

Seven of us wanted to get in on the happy hour deal because of their food menu and decent prices. We have friends and family in Ventura so they had all eaten there many times before. We had the experience of eating lunch there and again for their happy hour. It is a bit noisy but the food and service is fabulous! My only complaint is they only have happy hour at the actual bar and two other small tables which made it hard for us to all visit one another sitting lined up there. Wish they would expand it to the bar area!
