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.

I love looking out onto the boats in the marina while having lunch. We are local so we go fairly often. Always good!

This place came recommended and didn't disappoint. Ate here 2 days running and the atmosphere and quality couldn't be beaten. The waiters were attentive and knowledgable about the wines on offer. They worked the bar well!! The shrimp and scallop pasta was amazing, go early to avoid a wait for a table and sit either outside or at the bar

This place serves great seafood in a second floor setting overlooking the Ventura Harbor. Like its sister location in Santa Barbara, you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant. However, you are rewarded with really good food and service and a wonderful harbor view. Try the chowder. It is incredible!

Enjoy the sunset, view of the harbor, good server and food. Of course the seafood.
This is on the 2nd floor, affording a nice view of the marina and sunset. Usually fills up by 7pm, but there were several alternatives just downstairs.

Food was great and server attentive. Not much atmosphere outside of the view.

Stopped here by chance on a roadtrip. We were very glad we did! We chose to be seated on the outdoor patio and enjoyed the marina view. We were all very pleased with our selections. 2 of us chose the shrimp/crab salad and I must say it was the best seafood salad I have ever had. The presentation and the freshness made the choice worthwhile. Our other friends chose the Brophy burgers and were not disappointed. We were all very pleased with our experience.
