A co-worker recommended Brophy Bros. for dinner while I was in town on business. Nine of us went to dinner and they easily accommodated us. The food was very good and there was a nice view over the water. If you go, be sure to have the clam chowder. I had a cup and wished I had ordered a bowl.... More

I love to come here. The views over the harbor are lovely. The food is also top class. The restaurant is very busy on weekends, so you will have to wait. My solution is to come on weekdays.

Visited with my cousin. We were told we had a 10-15 min wait but were seated before we climb into a chair at the bar. Service was prompt, and the food was great. We wanted just something to take the edge off since we had dinner plans later in the evening. They had no problem allowing us to split an... More

Went here for a special occasion. We were sat promptly on a Thursday afternoon. We were given bread but found a hair in it): bread was also cold. No good. The waitress was nice, we ordered fish and chips and chowder. Chowder was delicious but fish and chips were lacking flavor. We will be coming back for chowder probably to... More

We went to Brophy Bros for our favorite lunch on the patio. Service and food are great here! Had been a few times for dinner, very nice. I wouldn't plan a quiet romantic dinner as the noise level is a bit on the loud side.

When we want some fresh delicious seafood we head to Brophy Bros. in Ventura. We love enjoying the view from the patio while sipping a Mai Tai or a beer and having some steamed clams or some of their delicious New England Clam Chowder. The last time we were there I tried their Shrimp Scampi and that was delicious as... More

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.
