Award-winning fish taco eatery second location now open

Ventura favorite Spencer Makenzie’s Fish Co. has opened their long-anticipated second location in Camarillo. The original is a beloved Ventura institution racking up national accolades from FiveThirtyEight, Business Insider, the Chive and Foursquare, amongst others, for their delicious, hand-crafted fish tacos, burritos, ‘sushi grade’ ahi tuna burgers, and more.

The new location is at 311 Carmen Drive, Camarillo. The new location features a large outdoor patio. Sporting the same beachy-themed decor of the original, but with more square-footage, the main dining room will feature a variety of seating arrangements.

Spencer Makenzie’s is also nationally famous for its annual End of Summer Block Party and “Throw Down” cornhole tournament.

Originally founded in 2007 by John Karayan and his wife Jennifer as a festival concession, the Karayan’s named their award-winning restaurant after two of their children – their son Spencer and their daughter Makenzie.

During that time, they perfected such signature dishes as Giant Fish Tacos, Clam Chowder, and Shrimp & Fish Ceviche and into unique recipes that provide a tastier, healthier and delicious alternative to typical “Fast Food”. Everything is made to order, they only use sushi grade fish, produce is purchased from local vendors and 100% of their famous sauces are homemade.

The original Spencer Makenzie’s Fish Co. is located at 806 East Thompson Blvd. The Camarillo location is at 311 Carmen Drive. For more information, please visit
