My wife and I went on date night to Winchesters. Not a place that you would normally think of as a date night place in Ventura but I wanted beer and she wanted a hamburger. We both wanted a place that offered outside seating. There are many beers on tap. The food was delicious. The hostess was very helpful: she... More

We stopped in for dinner before a movie on a recent Friday night. The tri-tip was not a good cut and did not have any flavor (sort of insult to injury). The iceberg wedge salad was decent as was the baked potato. We didn't order drinks so I can't comment on the bar. Service was friendly and prompt.

Stopped off here on a PCH roadtrip, the resteraunt is in a nice little street of other bars & other diners. The food (steak) was great and the waitress recommended a perfect wine to go with it. Well worth a visit!

There were no complaints from our table. The food was great. The Bloody Mary's were good. I recommend the Winchester Original burger. It was a nice and relaxing lunch. The waitresses are very kind and helpful.

Enjoyed dinner here with 3 friends. They have lots of variety on their menu. One of my friend had the bison burger. She really enjoyed it. They also have a huge beer and ale selection. Service was excellent.

On a recent trip to Ventura to celebrate my birthday, we stumbled on this late night gem. We got on to a late start that evening--we had first taken a stroll on the Promenade, near the Ventura Pier. By the time we were ready for dinner it was 8 pm. We went first to Ventura Harbor Village and we struck... More

Husband had read about the tri tip steak and was looking forward to ordering that. I ordered the lamb leg chop. We both had the baked potato with sour cream and chives which were very tasty. Husband found the tri tip lsteak a little tough and disappointing. My lamb chop was okay. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Had a business lunch here and was very happy with the food and service. They specialize in burgers and have a few items such as elk and bison burgers that you don't usually see. I had the turkey burger and enjoyed it very much. The feel of the restaurant is very welcoming and friendly and many people were sitting outside... More

This quaint eatery is in the heart of downtown Ventura. Parking is always an issue in the downtown area, but once done there are plenty of places to "hang out" or dine out. We visited Winchesters midweek for dinner, arriving just as happy hour was ending. Our server winked as she slipped our drinks in just in time. They have... More

Description
More than just a great steakhouse, Winchesters serves up the freshest seafood, succulent chicken, and even some exotic meats like venison, buffalo, and elk. But don’t forget about those Certified Angus Beef™ steaks. Whether it’s the massive Rib-Eye, the petite Top Sirloin, the New York or Tri-Tip they’re always thick and juicy and grilled to perfection. Lighter fare includes great burgers, salads and grilled sandwiches. Their forty draft beers along with extensive Wine and Martini lists will round out a truly memorable meal. Two heated patios and ample parking available.
