“Situated in the heart of Mid-Town Ventura, this charming restaurant is situated in a 1920's Spanish style bungalow. It has an award winning wine list, but is also has great Country Fried Steak! Parking is limited, but there is public parking across the street from the restaurant.”

“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.”

“Panaromic waterfront view dining on the beach in Malibu? Yes, please. Franco Simplicio's gorgeous restaurant is mere steps from the sand and offers an "eclectic seafood twist on classic Californian cuisine." But that view though...”
