Description: More than just a great steakhouse, Winchesters serves up the freshest seafood, succulent chicken, and even some exotic meats like venison, buffalo, and elk. But don’t forget about those Certified Angus Beef™ steaks. Whether it’s the massive Rib-Eye, the petite Top Sirloin, the New York or Tri-Tip they’re always thick and juicy and grilled to perfection. Lighter fare includes great burgers, salads and grilled sandwiches. Their forty draft beers along with extensive Wine and Martini lists will round out a truly memorable meal. Two heated patios and ample parking available.

I like their steak salad, but they changed it recently. They added red peppers and spinach. It doesn't add to the flavor, I'd rather have the old one back. Their ranch dressing is GREAT! I think their fries are good, too. So crunchy!

I went here for lunch on a Sunday with my husband. The atmosphere looked really interesting with a western theme, so we decided to try it. The cheapest thing on the menu was the Angus burger w/fries. The burger was ok, but it was over $10 and not that great. The fries were blah, and the ranch dressing was watery. Our waitress was horrible. We were served iced water in tiny juice glasses filled mostly with ice. She didn't bring us ranch or any refills on water until my husband went to track her down after 10 minutes of waiting. The only positive about this place is the cool atmosphere and nice patio. It's a bit crowded on the patio though. I would not recommend this place, try some of the other restaurants and grills, there's plenty to choose from.

Consistently good food. I LOVE their perfectly grilled and seasoned Buffalo burger or the WInchester's Burger with a baked sweet potato and a glass of La Terre Cabernet or a glass of beer! They have great French fries too. The hamburgers are so juicy you might as well just ask for extra napkins in the beginning because you will need them.
I always ask for a large plate because they serve their food on such small plates that there is no room to cut the hamburger in half if you want to.

Inside is a very cowboy/western atmosphere with nice booths. We like to sit outside looking out at Main Street. They have very effective hanging heaters outside. Downtown Ventura is a fun place to be on a Saturday night. Lots of motorcycles cruising down Main Street. We either walk up and down Main Street after dinner or time it right to walk across the street and catch a movie. Winchesters is not open for lunch during the week but it is on the weekends. Give it a try. It's addicting.

We have never had a bad experience here. We have been going here for years. The atmosphere is great, the food is great and the people are great. this place has become a staple for us whenever make a last minute decision to eat out.
poppers are great witht he fries, salad(so very fresh) with blue cheese dressing, and the petite top sirloin. MMMMM. the grilled shees sandwich is awsome.
