"Who'd a thunk it?" Here we were in the middle of the worlds citrus production center and here is this dynamic Irish Pub. With most of the population appearing to be Latino and a lot of the signs being in Spanish, I didn't think it could much - WOW! what mistake I made. This was kind of THE IRISH PUB... More

Chose Garman's for a meeting with an old flame to explore the possibilities of reuniting; proved to be a great choice! The ample portion of Guinness Stout served to put me in a good mood to consider the situation, and the exemplary serving of fish and chips warmed me considerably. Service was friendly, swift and attentive, and the atmosphere was... More

Visit Garmans at least once a year. Love the food and atmosphere. Service is always top notch. If you're ever out near Santa Paula Garmans is the place for great food and good times.

The building used to be a pool hall on historic Main Street. The building is at it was and much of that atmosphere has been preserved ,but it's a lot nicer now. Have been there to eat as a couple and to several group events. Only once has the service been too slow. We've always been pleased with the food.... More

Santa Paula's version of TV's "Cheers"... It has a wonderful variety of food, including inventive mixes of Irish food with the local culture such a Irish Tacos (high-quality corned beef & cabbage on tacos with cilantro dressing --YUM!). Love the Shepherd's Pie and the Dublin Stew served with fresh bread. Also have fish (great Fish n Chips), salads & boxties.... More

I had the special, my friend had a burger. The service was great and also the food. But what I liked the most was the bar: old fashioned and comfy.

Santa Paula closes their Main St. on the first Friday each month and there is a car show on the street. Garmin's is a convenient & yummy place to eat after viewing the cars. They have a good menu, prompt/friendly service and the food is good. We were visiting from out of town, but would eat there again.
