    Hands down one of best spots around & far enough from the tourist madness of Santa Monica. Food is good and comes in large quantities, you can't beat the view, cost is low, and parking gets validated

    Minimum order needs to be $30 to get your parking validated but luckily the portions are absolutely huge. Highly recommend the chowder in the bread bowl, just as good as what I've had in Cape Cod

    As they say, a little paradise on the beach. Be prepared to eat in the sand and enjoy some great seafood and crazy cocktails!But book a table before, or you'll wait for several hours.

    I came here with my whole family and we all loved the place. It's really beautiful! As for the food, gotta try the clam chowder, the crispy calamari, the crab cakes and the prime steak!!!

    Its a great place to eat, play or chill out for families, couples or anyone really. The food portions are too generous so think about sharing :).

    One way around the 'no alcohol permitted outside’ signs is to buy a sealed bottle of beer and open it yourself on the outdoor patio. Then just sit back and people-watch under the sun. Read more

    Go for the outside seating to enjoy great food and drinks while watching the sunset. The shrimp balague and soups are delicious.

    Screw waiting for seating. Go out onto the beach and snap a few seats or beach bed. You can order from their outside food bar, grab some eats, drink and rays. Plus run your feet through the sand.

    Great location on the beach. Perfect spot for cocktails on the beach. Service was very friendly and really great. Food however is mediocre at best.

    Amazing beach with a great little pier. A perfect place to get some champagne and have a toast for New Years.

    Expensive but the portions are huge. Seagulls are a pain and I kept getting bit by bugs. Beautiful view.

    My favorite new place to bring visiting friends. Good, reasonably priced food with a beach that can't be beat...or overcrowded. Loves it!

    Cool patio on the beach with the sand :-) the food is so so, but portions are really huge. Guacamole was really enough as a meal on its own :)

    For breakfast the Leo is quite good. I like fruit in lieu of the hashbrowns though as it is already a heavy/rich dish.
  • Shinjini B.
    One of my favorites! Great place to come with visitors. Loved the tortilla soup!

    If you want to dine on the water, this places gives you that ultimate experience. Especially with the tables that are on the sand (on the patio). Food is fair. Kinda pricey.

    Don't forget to ask what the market price is on the raw platter before you go all out...gets pricey!

    Don't try to walk in. It's $20 a person to walk in or $6 a car to park. I guess you have to be Eco-friendly some other day.

    Super touristy and crowded. But sand in your toes while you have a cocktail. Glad I saw it but wouldn't go out of my way to return.
