This is a great restaurant for family and friends to eat lots of burritos and chat together, as well as watch surfing movies.

Followed a recommendation from a family member for really good fish tacos and this was the place. We ordered the 2 shrimp taco combo and it was awesome! Choice of corn or flour tortillas and either soft or fried. The best seafood tacos ever!

So good! My husband (who has eaten allot of fish tacos in his life) said these were the best ever. I had shrimp veggies and rice - super fresh to die for! Good people watching

Small, cozy, comfortable, not fancy restaurant in downtown Ventura. Reasonably priced. Nice place to just hang out and enjoy your food with a beer. The tacos were so good that I came back the next night to try a burrito.

Both the fish and shrimp tacos were delicious and the special sauce really added great flavor. They have a lot of salsas to choose from at the salsa bar. Their menu is really extensive - worth a quick stop and... More

I try not to write bad reviews. I will often try a place multiple times if something is off the first time. This story is the opposite. Snapper Jacks started out great. My first trip a few yeas ago yielded fresh hot grilled fish, cabbage and a crispy shell. The last two visits the food was almost inedible. On my... More

Their crunchy steak tacos are the best! If you're trying to eat a bit healthier, their quinoa bowl is amazing. & everything only gets better with their shack sauce.

First time having fish tacos. The staff was friendly and the food was fresh. They played some pretty good oldies and the decor was nice

Took the hair to the guy at the counter he said "okay". I was not upset about it but the Okay is not okay . I'm sorry about that would've worked
