Ventura Beach Dining Options

For a brief, shining moment last month, in-house dining returned to Ventura County. Unfortunately, Governor Newsom ordered a temporary halt on July 1st due to a spike in Coronavirus cases. What does this mean for Ventura beach dining options?

Restaurant dining reverted back to outdoor or takeout on July 1st. But there are options to how you enjoy Ventura beach dining at Ventura Harbor Village.

Ventura Beach Dining

Search Ventura County homes for saleVentura Harbor Village offers outdoor dining and takeout options for all of its restaurants. This includes the 805 Bar & Grilled Cheese, Baja Bay Surf ‘N Taco, Margarita Villa, The Parlor, and Water’s Edge, among others. All restaurants and bars offering outdoor dining must keep a six foot distance between tables. Only members living in the same household may sit together. Patrons must limit their dining time to between one and one and a half hours before the table gets turned over. Bars and pubs now close between 10 pm and 5 am.

What About Ventura Bars and Pubs?

As of July 16th, the Ventura County Health Officer ordered bars and pubs to close their inside service to the public. However, if these bars serve food, they may do so on their outdoor patios. Alcohol may also be ordered and served at the same time that food is requested. Wineries and wine tasting rooms may continue to operate as long as they adhere to strict guidelines.

Alternatives to Outdoor Dining

Ventura beach dining at Harbor Village offers a few alternatives to sit-down dining. First, order your food to go. Just about every restaurant at Ventura Harbor Village allows you to call in an order for pick-up. Then, take your food to the Seaside Takeout Zone at the village. Bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs for a nice, comfortable picnic at the harbor. Or rent an electric boat for a ride around the harbor and enjoy your food on the water. Yet another option is to go across the road and take it out on the beach for a lovely beach picnic. Just make sure you always pick up after yourself and throw trash away in the appointed receptacles. We want to make sure everyone gets a chance to enjoy the beaches for decades to come.

Main Street Moves Ventura

Just today, Governor Newsom ordered a second shutdown of indoor businesses amid concerns over the spread of COVID-19. That includes indoor dining at restaurants. However, he still allows outdoor dining and shopping to continue. Why? This facilitates social distancing much easier than the confines of indoors. So, the local experiment known as Main Street Moves Ventura appears to continue through until its end date of July 16th.

Even though Governor Newsom again announced closures of indoor dining at local restaurants, Main Street Moves Ventura allows you to eat and shop outside over five blocks in the downtown area until July 16th, 2020.

What: Main Street Moves Ventura
Where: Downtown Ventura, Main St between Fir & Palm and California St between Santa Clara & Poli
When: 7 am to 10 pm every day between now and July 16th, 2020

Main Street Moves Ventura

Search Ventura County homes for saleOn June 16th, five blocks in the downtown Ventura area shut down their streets to vehicular traffic. This allowed businesses in the area to expand out onto the sidewalks and streets in an effort to accommodate customers while still allowing for social distancing requirements. These blocks allow for foot and bicycle traffic from 7 am to 10 pm daily.

In addition to shopping at your favorite stores outdoors, restaurants allow dining al fresco. Of course, takeout is still available at many places if you feel more comfortable doing that instead.

Health and Safety

Restaurants and shops must adhere to state, federal, and CDC guidelines during this time to remain open. That means that employees and guests must always wear a mask. The only exceptions to that rule are if you have a medical or mental condition that prevents you from wearing a mask. Also, hearing-impaired people or anyone who needs to communicate with a hearing-impaired person does not need to wear a mask. Basically, if a person must be able to see another person’s mouth in order to communicate, they do not need to wear a mask at that time.

Of course, when you eat or drink at a restaurant, you don’t need to wear a mask either. But that’s where a six foot distance from others becomes necessary. Outdoor activities such as swimming, running, hiking, bicycling, etc., do not require the use of masks. Again, maintain that six foot distance from others in your vicinity while engaged in outdoor activities.
