Welcome to Ventura's Greenhouse!
EXECUTIVE CHEF. STEVEN B. BENNARD
The history of the Greenhouse goes back approximately 100 years.
In the early 1900's it began as a six room apartment house.
In 1932 during prohibition it was known as a speakeasy. In the late 30's and early 40's it became a tavern serving patrons on occasion such as the notorious Dillinger and friends. From the 1950's to present day it has been the most popular summer spot in town with the attraction of a beer garden facing the ocean. The Greenhouse has survived three major storms in 1944,1962 and most recently Hurricane Irene this year (2011). Even though we've given the building a facelift, the personality of the original house still remains.
We serve lunch daily on the outside deck and dinners nightly in our ocean view dining room.
