The wait for a table was just a bit longer, but most likely because of the day. The service was excellent and food was great! Family friendly and sitting outside you got a view of the harbor. With this time of year, it’s light out...More

Only if you were on the corner of the patio closest to the ocean. The sun sets over the ocean so if you have an ocean view from the patio, you will see it.

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.
