Best Bloody Mary in Ventura on Sundays

Wikipedia says,

A Bloody Mary is a popular cocktail containing vodka, tomato juice, and combinations of other spices and flavorings including Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, piri piri sauce, beef consommé or bouillon, horseradish, celery, olives, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and celery salt. It has been called “the world’s most complex cocktail”.

It’s just not a Sunday without a zesty Bloody Mary here in Ventura.

It’s not on Happy Hour but try the pickled Bloody. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Upstairs you can choose your own toppings to somewhat build your own. Add Crab Legs to yours.

Or get the standard $5 Bloody which is just perfect.

Lure

A classic bloody Mary with an extra dash of horseradish.

Boatyard Café at the Harbor – $3

Brophy Bros Bloody MaryBrophy Bros

One of the stiffest Bloody Mary’s out there. It has an herbal flavor. I am guessing there are some extra celery seeds in the mixture.

The Greek

This Bloody make me happy because it’s only $4 in the bar and patio

Peiranos

Classic in a Tumbler but cheap

Winchesters

Get here early. There is good reason for the wait.

Nonas Café

The courtyard is something out of a storybook.

The Vagabond

I have heard lots of good stuff about. Though I haven’t been there. And it’s the cheapest menu I’ve seen so I thought I’d mention it.

Social Tap street tacos $2.50 each. Wine and local drafts are $3.50. Mixed review.

Maybe it was an off day but our experience wasn’t the best. We ordered Hot Wings (B-) and the expediter dropped them without  napkins! It’s really hard to get me to complain and the expediter might have been new, but it’s one of my peeves.  If your going to bring some food to a table, save yourself and the customer some frustration by BRINGING EVERYTHING THAT ONE NEEDS to eat the dish. Hot wings… Hello? at the very  least napkins? Not to mention Hot Wings are traditionally served with Bleu Cheese not Ranch dressing. The other thing that was slightly annoying were the flies, being that the bar is open air, which is nice on one hand, being so close to the beach. It’s probably not something I can complain about, we could have probably moved to a better spot. A ceiling fan would have helped.

If your a Coors Light or Bud Light draft drinker, know that they do not serve that here. We were told that they were not trying to attract that crowd. WOW… Shame that the level of service does not match the ego of the establishment.

On the other hand it was a good value. We ordered Hot Wings and 2 Street Tacos ($2.50 ea.) and was fully fed for dinner.

I’ve had breakfast here and it was really good for $10. I’m really trying to like this place. Maybe it was just an off day.
