There was a big, pub-style menu but there were lots of healthy choices and the salads were fantastic. A nice selection of beers and enough screens if you popped in to watch the game. The staff was attentive and friendly.

We had the pleasure of returning to Ventura recently (had been here several years prior) and enjoyed a beautiful day exploring the downtown area. When in one of the shops, we asked the employees for a recommendation, and they said Anacapa, without any hesitation. We took their recommendation and were certainly glad we did. We enjoyed sitting outside and thoroughly... More

This is a great place for good beer in Ventura. The food is also really good, Ahi egg roles and fried calamari being my favorite. The staff is very helpful and nice.

Great place to relax and get a bite. Easy, friendly patrons at the bar and at the tables, and the staff was relaxed but attentive to everyone. We liked the freshness of both our salads and the fish. Overall and nice place to duck in and out of, even if you don't get a beer.

Stopped here for an early dinner one evening while on a business trip and had a fantastic dinner. Not only were the servers very knowledgeable about their menu they were very interested in helping as well. I chose the Hamburger with fig preserves, bacon, blue cheese...it was amazing! Maybe one of the top 3 burgers that I have eaten in... More

Anacapa serves very good craft beer, also really nice happy hour fish tacos and tamales. Outdoor seating. Smells a bit bad inside! I wonder why? Worth visiting!

I've been here with my husband and daughters a few times and we've always had a good experience. Seating is a little tight but we always have great service, my husband is always happy with his beer recommendations and we are always happy with our food choices, our service and overall experience. I have always had the Teriyaki Salmon Salad... More

We went to dinner there on Saturday around 5:30pm. An hour later they were packed. Server was friendly and knowlegable of food and brews. I had the special which was a Tritip. It was great.

Good food, good service and a fabulous magician. What a surprise, just after we ordered a magician came to our table to entertain us. Still can't figure out how he did it. We recommend the house brewed rootbeer.

Burger was super greasy, calamari was rubbery, fish and chips have no flavor, and beer was tasteless. Service was good but food terrible. Would not recommend this place to anyone.
