Great place for food and Beer. Food is great and has amazing flavor. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is due to the poor kid seating issue. Need to make sure to cater to families more in a beach town.

Family friendly local restaurant walking distance to the beach. We were a party of 7 in an age range from 8-78. They promptly seated us on a Saturday night and were very patient with all of the kids questions and requests. The food was nice and service was fine.

Good service and fair prices. Fun place to hangout if you are at the beach or meeting friends. Good selection of Draft beer and happy hour has some good items and drinks at good prices.

While I've only been once my relatives from Ventura have been many times. The fact they go back so often is more than a hint that they like this beachfront establishment. I went on Trivia Night & the place was packed. I had a major fail on the trivia contest but it was fun huddling with my kinfolk laughing &... More

We decided to check out Social Tap during our Ventura visit and we were very pleased! We were there for brunch and the bloody mary's were great as were the mimosa's. The food was good too. Our staff (yes more than one stopped by to check on us - three did) were attentive and made sure that we didn't go... More

I asked for a non-fat or reduced fat dressing for the salad I wanted to order. No such thing. I asked if they had a veggie burger, no such thing. I asked if they had multi grain or wheat bread or tortillas, no such thing. I ended up with a veggie taco and a side of guacamole. It was good.... More

This was a great find and once found we keep coming back. Lively with a good crowd, great beer on tap and excellent fish sandwich. This is so Ventura laid back and welcoming. Can't wait for my next trip.

So happy to try this place for Breakfast.. and if I did not have to work on Sunday.. those Bloody Marys sure looked good. Ordered breakfast sandwich with bacon, home potatoes and a waffle on the side- everything was fresh, and tasty! Waffle was nice and light with some berries on it! Seating outside was clean and service came by... More

This place was great! We had been looking for a really good IPA and found it here, Green Flash Double IPA. We had gone to 3 other places and they were too loud and the beer not great.
