On scenic Ventura Highway, about halfway between busy Los Angeles and picturesque Santa Barbara, lies the growing city of Camarillo. Nestled between the beautiful Santa Susana Mountains to the north and the western reaches of the Santa Monica Mountains to the south, this Central California Coastal town contains a wee bit of Ireland that no visitor should miss: Brendan’s Irish Pub and Restaurant.
A mere 15 minutes from Point Mugu, Brendan’s is the perfect place to treat yourself to a traditional Irish meal or a frothy pint of Guinness. Watch football with friends, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or just relax after a hectic day of surfing along the sandy coastline or bargain-hunting at the nearby Camarillo Premium Outlet center.
Cozy, Charming, and Friendly
From the stunning stonework to the mahogany paneling to the intricate lacy design of the shimmering Rosewood Antique Copper ceiling tiles, Brendan’s exudes an atmosphere of warmth and friendliness.
To add to this friendly ambiance, Brendan’s proudly displays its Alcohol Safety Program, which shows that they care enough about their customers to provide rides home for anyone who might otherwise be unable to make it home safely.
Authentic, Yet Modern
Owners Brendan Searls and Jonathan Siegel seamlessly blend the old-world charm of Brendan’s native County Cork with the state-of-the-art facilities of Jonathan’s trendy home state of California. Traditional Irish food, drink, and games are melded with modern technology such as an online reservation system, free wifi, and enough high-definition TVs to make any sports fan cheer.
Brendan’s has even been cited by Inc. magazine as having one of the “Top 20 Most Awesome Facebook Pages”. See for yourself!
Fun and Games
If you like dancing, you’ll love Brendan’s lighted dance floor, with music from 9 pm to closing.
Brendan’s “Gobshite Night Thursdays” feature $4 pints of Brendan’s own Gobshite Ale and Newcastle Brown Ale and $6 Blarney Burgers and Irish Nachos.
What pub visit wouldn’t be complete without a friendly game of darts? Brendan’s has both public and private rooms where friends can enjoy a lively round of Cricket or 301. There’s even a shuffleboard!
Food or Drink
At Brendan’s you won’t have to choose between a round or a meal. But with 14 beers on tap, over 220 available whiskeys, and a full menu of favorite Irish dishes—such as bangers and mash, corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, Irish nachos, and curry fries—the only choice you’ll have to make is which beverage and dish to enjoy!
