more of a sports bar than a fish place

this was our third visit in 2 years and this time we ended up there because other restaurant/bars on the pier were all full. I remembered some good fish and fries a year ago, but... read more

Read in the paper that Fat Face Fenner's was to close on October 1st. I haven't walked by in the two days since, but call ahead if that's your destination. I'll go by today to confirm and post another review if I'm wrong (or remove this one). Apparently there was a dispute with the landlord. FFFF will be missed.

One of the Best Happy Hour's in Hermosa. Fish Taco's are some of the best in Hermosa. The 2nd story open air view of Pier Ave comes in second, right behind Hennessey's. Great place to people watch.

Went to watch USA soccer game. Place was very busy as we expected. Ordered appetizers of wings and artichoke/spinach dip. Wings were tasteless and came out of the kitchen without being sauced. Sent artichoke dip back it was so bad. Was promised it would come off our bill. Ordered our food and after an hour was told they were working... More

this was our third visit in 2 years and this time we ended up there because other restaurant/bars on the pier were all full. I remembered some good fish and fries a year ago, but this time, the fish turned out mushy and greasy. Beer selection was also limited, only one IPA on tap. Place looked more run down than... More

I found this bar/restaurant by accident, but I'm glad I did. Being originally from Boston, I was glad to find a place like this in California. The atmosphere reminded me of Sports Bars back home with Bruins, Red Sox on the big T.V.'s which were easily seen from any corner of the place. Food was Excellent and Beer was Ice... More

The reason we left the bar across the street was because it was so crowded and had NO dance floor! This was a nice little place with great drinks, good music and a dance floor. It wasnt too crowded, although it got busier as the night went on! Great place to meet new people!!

Been going to this bar for years and sorry to say, the food has turned into a total nightmare. Just awful and cheap...Frozen vegetables, uncooked fried fish, half cooked calimari, uncooked chicken, greasy burgers....And they use the cheapest of all cheapest mixes for drinks. They must have some new cooks in the kitchen. Well, can't really call them cooks...To bad... More

So it wasn't a terrible place, by any means, there was just nothing to make it special either. I'd recently gotten into this whole foursquare thing, as it's kinda fun to use when traveling. Shows your friends where you've been, what you're up to, etc. So when I saw FFFF had a Special on draft beer, I thought "what the... More

i wasn't going to post anything, but after reading the negative post i figured i would.i have been there a few times at different times of the year. it is a pretty low key place when i was there. no lines, not a lot of people, decent food. the best thing about it is outdoor seating and an elevated view....
