Ate there both mornings while staying in Ventura. Great service, great breakfast at a reasonable price. Location is good for a lot of places in Ventura by the harbor and the beaches.

This is just a simple cafe but the food is quite good and excellent value. We've visited several times when we wanted a light-ish dinner while traveling. Will return.

Used to eat here quite a bit. It is a coffee shop, and it has gone down hill a little. The food was okay - the portions were pretty big... No complaints there. The service was so so. The waitress wasn't really attentive to us...More

Walked in to a funky smell. Like sewage smell. Huge menu, everything looked so good. We've never eaten at one of these before. Hubs got the prime rib and lobster dinner. I ordered bbq ribs & crispy chicken dinner, but got ribs & bbq chicken....More

Carrows is a feel good chain restaurant, a little bit better than Dennys (and a little more expensive, too). This place was quite pleasant, food was good, nice choices, and pleasant people serving.
