Description: We are a casual seafood house that is located right on the dock in the Ventura & Santa Barbara Harbor. You'll find a bustling scene of fisherman, young professionals and sand-sprinkled beach-goers nearly every night of the week at these true-blue waterfront institution. Dungeness crab cocktail, oysters on the half-shell and fried shrimp round out the "small" menu offerings. Fresh fish specials, such as grilled white sea bass from local waters, mahi mahi dusted in Cajun spices and pan-blackened local yellowtail, are highlights on the "long" menu. No matter what, libations are always in order at this locals' favorite gathering place. Everyone is welcome at Brophy's, hope to see you soon.

“Excellent seafood and a nice view of Ventura Harbor!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

We were visiting from the midwest and met California friends at Brophy Bros. for a good Saturday afternoon lunch with a view. The four of us had Sea Bass, Swordfish (two of us), and Ahi Tuna and all reported very good meals. The area is nice with shops around the harbor, so its a nice destination for an afternoon visit. We will definitely return when we're in the area!

“Night-Time Dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

Came here with the family on a Friday evening.

We were greeted and seated in a friendly and speedy way. Ordered the fish and chips, good to me, but not ahhmazing. But then it could just be me.

I am guessing that it may have been a busy night because we had a difficult time trying to locate our server. He took our orders and we never saw him until he dropped off our drinks after we received our food. And then once more when we asked for the check and he got us refills.

I *may* try this place again, but then I may just as easily visit another place. Nothing special that drew me in. But it wasn't bad.

“Excellant Seafood Dining- Harbor View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Met with business associates for a little R&R. Atmosphere was excellant, service excellant, food excellant! Beautiful view of Ventura harbor, probably one of the best available, if not THE best. Pricing was good and expected for what we got. I would call this an outstanding value!
