We were visiting the Pirate Festival at the Ventura Harbor Village and needed to stop for lunch. The Parlor in nestled in the shops and eateries in Ventura Harbor Village and looked liked a great lunch stop. The place is small and decorated very nice, looks like a 50's soda shop. They serve burgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese at a very reasonable price especially for the location. They have outside dining with a good view of the harbor. The Bacon Cheese Burger was perfect, the bacon cooked just right not burnt and the beef patty was done but not dried out, priced at under $5.00 it is a great deal. The fries are average and the onion rings are frozen but they are real onion rings not the pressed stuff a lot of places serve and cooked to a golden crisp brown without being greasy. They have a large selection of drinks to choose from. The place was packed when we were there due to the Pirate Festival but the line moved quickly the service friendly and helpful, this is the only reasonable priced place to eat in the village which added to the line, the high priced restaurants did not appear to be very busy. The kids seamed to really like the grilled cheese sandwiches they were putting out.
The Parlor is cash only but they do have an ATM machine on site.
I recommend the Parlor if you are in the Ventura Harbor Village area and want a great hamburger.
