Great beer, which of course you would expect, but the food and service is the greatest! There are probably 100 restaurants we could choose on Main Street, but the we love the food, service and of course the beer here. We always get the Buenaventura Rolls, and this time I had a salad (can't remember the name), but it had... More

This is a great place to go that's fun with it's Ventura County theme. The food is awesome and fairly priced too. With a good variety, it's an easy match for a large group, portions are generous and the service is top notch. Also, it's located right downtown so it's a good spot to meet up or jump off from....

Had a nice dinner here on a Monday night. Food was good, had a vegetable muffaletta with a side of Mac n cheese that was to die for! Creamy, cheesy and delicious! Service wasn't the best, couldn't split the check, which was frustrating, but all in all a good experience.

My father in-law and his brother were visiting from Oklahoma. His brother in-law has never been to California before so we wanted to take him to some of our favorite places. We talked them into taking the hour and a half drive to Ventura (along with my step-daughter and her boyfriend) to have lunch and drinks at Anacapa Brewing. My... More

Anacapa Brewing is one of those places where you can eat outdoors and watch the people right in front of you. We had the White Cap beer along with napa salad and Margherita Pizza, Both excellent for a kick back saturday afternoon! The dessert was White Choc Bread Pudding. And if you like your beer this is the place for... More

Plenty of parking downtown with easy access to a number of places. Lots of local options on the brewlist with good options from around the area. The filet slices were good, as was the fish n chips. The service was fantastic.

I wasn't expecting much from a brewery as I'm not much of a beer drinker and am also a vegetarian, but my boyfriend had been in the mood for a burger and beer so we chose Anacapa. Our server was fantastic. She was very nice, very professional, and when I ordered the Cobb salad sans bacon and turkey, she immediately... More
