    Fish Tacos are amazing! Gigantic portions. Great place.

    The Works is not to be taken lightly. A foot of chocolate cake plus three scoops of ice cream and hot fudge.

    It may not be the best food in the world... but it is the most expensive.

    This is a great restaurant that resembles a little resort with private beach. Read more

    Look out for the hostesses... Their bitch-o-meter soars through the roof!

    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

    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.

    One word to describe is Paradise☀️🌊🌺🌴

    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

    Pina colada tasted neither of pineapple nor of coconut.

    So good to eat there not very expensive

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

    Order the Clam Chowder! Is the best I've ever had. Be prepared to be full! =) The chocolate chip cheesecake (say that fast!) is SO yum!

    Seafood and the views from the outdoor adirondack chairs on the beach!

    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

    Portions are HUGE!! Order carefully! Delicious chowder, though. (Coming from a New Englander)

    Most expensive touristy place I have ever been. The food was over priced and mediocre at best, and it cost $30 dollars to park! I don't think I'll be coming back.

    Service is not that great, food is overpriced and nothing special. Only reason to come here is the beach and outdoor seating.
