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.

Some exotic stuff on the menu, including Buffalo. Unfortunately, the ostrich burgers are gone, but they try new offerings pretty frequently. And it's hard to name a beer they don't have. Excellent, friendly service. Crowded on weekends.

Hey Dan~
Thanks so much for the kind words. Yes, we're bummed that we can no longer get the ostrich as well, but we've added elk, and a few other new things in it's place. We hope we can look forward to seeing you again soon! Cheers!

Love the steak salad at Winchesters. It's smaller than it used to be but just as delicious. A great spot for dinnerafter a downtown movie. We like to eat indoors, but there is plenty of outdoor seating as well.

We keep going back for the Winchester Burger! It's the best biggest juiciest burger I have ever had. I always order a baked sweet potato with my burger but their fries are excellent too! I have tried their Buffalo meat burger and the Kobe which both cost a few bucks more. They are both excellent but I can't taste that big of a difference compared to the Winchester Burger cooked medium rare.

They have booths inside that are OK but the lighting is too limited for our taste. We prefer to sit outside facing Main Street and look at the beautiful City of Ventura. You can always count on at least a few motorcycles driving by as they rev up their engines. It's part of the charm! They also have a side covered patio for bigger parties. There are heaters outside to take the chill off. There is parking on Main Street, on the side streets and in back of the restaurant. You need to enter the rear lot on Chestnut Street so Google the location first. After going there you'll see what I mean.

They only take reservations for parties of 8 but we rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to be seated. ALWAYS ask for your burger to be served on a BIG plate. I don't know why they normally use such small plates. Again, it's part of the charm.

Got an Amazon deal to this place and went to dinner. They only open after 4pm. This is a great local little place with an "cool" menu, exotic meats like venison and buffalo. Service was out of this world, the waitress made my daughter feel so special and went out of the way to give my daughter her own "salad" always asking if it was ok with us. The service is what really gives this place a reason to come back.
