    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

    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

    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

    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!!!

    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.

    Didn't find a difference between alcohol and non alcohol cocktail. Water with a lime! Overpriced, parking is a joke, you should "validate" it or it will cost 40$, but noone told this. Avoid this place

    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 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.
