“When I first came to Ojai I really wanted to go to the Deer Lodge. It’s an old 1930s roadhouse. Inside is dark with overstuffed arm chairs, very lodge like. Weekends, there are tons of bikers there, not the gang type, more the middle aged execs from LA riding their Harleys. If you stick to appetisers or burgers you should be ok, otherwise the food is a disaster. However, it is an Ojai legend, should visit.”

“Very popular Meiners Oaks eatery. Pizza, Pasta and sandwiches at very reasonable prices. Outside patio. I like it but in all honesty the pasta is one step up from Chef Boyardinis but cheap!”

Park
“This is a few blocks from us. The Ojai Land Conservancy saved this land from becoming a shopping center and today it is a birder's paradise - many types of ducks in the pond and several types of Owls in the Eucalyptus grove - an all around great place to take a stroll. From the meadow you can also connect to The Saddle trail, great views and a great way to get in a little cardio. ”
