Been here several times in the past. The ceviche was some of the best we've had. We ordered the steamed seafood sampler platter which included the ceviche. It can be crowded and you may have to wait for a table. But don't worry it will probably be 15 to 20 minutes before you get your order. Plenty of time for a table to open up. The oysters were fresh and tasty and the shrimp was cooked just right. The steamed clams were over cooked. It was like chewing a rubber band. The 2 small crab claws were also over cooked and tasteless. The ceviche was not the same. It was minced up "stuff" and over powered by lemon. We could only gag down half of it. The platter was not worth $35.00. There are better seafood restaurants in Oxnard.

Iconic. Great location. Perhaps they could invest in proper bathroom facilities instead of the porta potties. Eating there once was enough.

This is a nice place to get some fresh seafood in a super casual atmosphere. One side of the restaurant is steamed seafood, the other side is fried. Pick up your drinks before placing your order.

It was packed here on a Thursday... seating was a little hard to find.

I came in the evening and ran across the street to catch an AMAZING view of the sun set.

I ordered the Neptune's net sampler: fish, shrimp, scallop, clam strips, crab cake, calamari, fries. Everything was lightly seasoned. The shrimp, scallops, and fish were crunchy outside and moist/tender inside. The texture of the crab cake was a little off putting and wasn't very good to me. Overall, it was good with a lively atmosphere.

I was there in March 2014 for a quick bite while I drove from Oxnard to LAX. I had the ceviche which I would not recommend. Great views of the ocean if you can get a table on the patio outside, but these are the first to go. I will try this place again when passing through the area.
