If you don't mind the noise its a great spot with a fireplace, sports on TV and some great fried chicken! Also the salmon is terrific a is the chicken pot pie ...so there you have it. But the place fills up on weekends so be prepared for the noise level...or get a table near the fireplace!

Stopped here on a weekend and we were lucky to get a table for six in a short amount of time. There were many choices on the menu. I had the Guiness and Steak pie. It was yummy. The leek soup was terrific too. All six of us were thrilled with our choices. We shared two desserts, the Irish Cream... More

You can never go wrong with an Irish pub! But this was an authentic Irish pub. We went after the normal lunch hour, so it wasn't busy but our server said it gets a great crowd. She was so sweet and made our visit there a memorable one. Great food, great service and the drinks were made perfectly. All three... More

Dinner with family the other night was a special treat! I haven't had such good Irish food since my last visit to Ireland. Great beer selection - they even have Murphy's. I had the Irish stew. Other family members had the Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner and the Salmon dinner. Food was prepared well, served hot and tasted great. I... More

Went to Dargans after a day at Highland Games. The food was great, and the drinks were too. Great prices for the quality. Would definitely go there again. Was a fun place for the evening.

Just back from a trip to Ireland and Scotland, I was craving a hearty pot pie. Dargan's did not disappoint. That they had a seafood pot pie was a nice surprise, as you can't always find these. It was rich! And it was delicious. And it felt like I was back in the UK. We actually had intentions of having... More

Dragon's Irish pub is a great place for dinner in downtown Ventura. I loved their homemade chicken pot pie. I went with my Irish friend who had never been there and she loved the Irish appetizers. The service and atmosphere were great.

If you love Reuben sandwiches, look no further. To die for! Corned beef melts in your mouth. Excellent fish and chips. Everything was great. Guinness on tap. Try the light and dark.

Very busy venue, hence noisy. Service was speedy and efficient, prices reasonable. I had corned beef and cabbage which I thought was grand. Salads and other items my husband and our friends had also had a good review. A lively place and a happy experience.
