Whether or not you decide to go have some fun at The Players Casino in Oxnard, make sure you check out the The Patio, which is a fabulous restaurant within. The relatively new restaurant offers a laidback vibe that makes it a great place to eat no matter the time of day. Whether you work up an appetite playing slots or you are just looking for a bite to eat, The Patio has plenty of tasty dishes to offer.
The restaurant’s Vietnamese menu offers items like the basil appetizer plate, samba grilled shrimp and chicken cabbage salad. If you are in the mood for some vegetarian, try the pho vegetarian with noodles, broccoli, mushroom broth, tofu, carrots, soy protein, zucchini and vegetarian ham. Stop in at The Patio for some deliciously soothing and flavorful foods.
Our entry was sketchy. Parking was hard to find, but we did get a spot. Very busy on Saturday night! We entered the side patio and found ourselves in the middle of the dining room (oops!). Check in is next to the bar (I think)... It was total chaos getting checked in. We were in the middle of everyone and everything and even now I'm STILL not sure where check-in was...
There were bouncers passing us back and forth from casino to restaurant.
We were seated in the back, very busy place. I guess another server gave away our table lol so we had to wait a bit.
All was forgiven when we got served... Our waiter was awesome, adorable and attentive. He was the nicest guy! Not sure his name, he had plug stretchers in his ears.
Food was fantastic. I had raw beef pho soup and my husband had grilled chicken sammich with fries.
We will be back, as soon as we figure out where the restaurant entrance is.
We went here for dinner because we had heard great things. The food was excellent, but the service was amazing! There was even live band. Great evening!
You cannot beat the Friday Night Prime Rib Special for $14.99. Super quality beef cooked perfectly with a delicious au jus and horseradish cream, mashed potatoes and perfectly cooked and seasoned veggies. AND, there is entertainment on the patio with comfy seating, warmers and cool fire feature at the entrance on the parking lot side of Players Casino.
Do not miss out on dessert! Peach crisp is hands-down your grandmothers comfort food but a touch better! Served hot with a scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream....MMMMMMM! Other items on the dessert tray are excellent, as well so save room. Then, enjoy some live music on the patio and dance off some of those calories. On the 4 Friday's I have been, Hubby and I enjoyed all the musicians that played. We are so glad we found out about this hidden gem, and have added it to our short list of regular dinners out!
Went here with my husband on our Jury Duty break. Christina took care of us. She had far too many tables, but she handled it all with a smile on her face. Very happy with the service, and the food was good enough. I've been looking for a Jury Duty lunch spot and I'm happy with what we found at The Patio.
Each bite was better than the next. From the ciabatta roll to the side of fruit, someone in that kitchen has high standards! The dessert was delicious! We didn't order the most adventurous choices on the menu but the basics are definitely done right. The sandwich rolls and fruit were very fresh and the meats were tender and flavorful. I wouldn't have changed a thing!
I was unaware of this restaurant until I saw it on Open Table, so wanted to give it a try. Unlike previous reviewers, I went for dinner, not brunch. Menu is fairly generic, although they do have a surprising separate Vietnamese menu. My husband had a chicken sandwich, which he declared 'ok', I had the spring rolls from the Vietnamese menu. There were 3 large spring rolls at a very reasonable $6.95. I filled up on 2, and took one home. They were good, but a little bland, and could have used more 'heat' in the dipping sauce. Ambience is so-so, as is the service. There were only 2 other parties in the restaurant. Several large TV screens on the walls, all tuned to different sports channels. Thankfully, the sound was off.
It's kind of dumpy, but I enjoyed myself immensely! The brunch was great with unlimited champagne. The music group was fabulous, altho- after next week they will not be playing any more because of football. Don't know why they can't have both.
My son and his family had dinner on fathers day and the food was great. Service was good and the atmosphere friendly. Will definitely recommend to everyone.
This place is a gem. We went for Father's Day and had a great breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised that there was live jazz, too.
This was chosen as a nearby location while in Oxnard on Business. This restaurant is in the back of a casino that was converted from an auto dealer show room. Not what I would call the caliber of a restaurant you would find in a Casino / Resort. Food was what I would rate as good but nothing to travel out of the way for. Its off the Freeway and like a Denny's convenient to grab a bite to eat
