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.

“So-So”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

Came here on a Sunday afternoon with family. Staff was very friendly however service was average. Food was average at best. The view of the harbor and the surrounding mountains was spectacular.

“Are Fish & Chips your thing? Here's a Ventura must.”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

Beer batter fish and chips were served piping hot. The had a light, tasty crust and firm, delicate fish inside. The cole slaw was sweet, fresh and hand-tossed. The local beer that was recommended was also a great fit.

This is a place with a harbor view that serves up local brews and wines, and seems to attract locals. Knowledgeable servers, Great view, quick service. I'm definitely coming back.

“Excellent seafood and a nice view of Ventura Harbor!”
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!
