Touristy, but fun.

Go knowing this area is geared toward tourists. It is a nice place to sit outside, enjoy a cocktail & watch the sea lions frolic.

Fisherman's Village is like a little oasis in the city. It is not as busy as it was 20 or so years ago. Back then, it was bustling with shops and restaurants. Today, there are a few restaurants and shops. The best entertainment there is the live bands on the weekends. They perform year round, and they range from country,... More

Great selection and wonderful views. It has a real family feel and children are welcome. It is very dated and old fashioned but I think that is part of its charm. Brunch is a bit pricey but selection is good.

Stop by Fisherman's Village any Saturday or Sunday for great free music. The cost of parking is minimal and if you buy a coffee or ice cream or a nice lunch at the restaurants they validate for 2 free hours. The music is awesome varies from great R&B Bands to Country, Bosa Nova, etc. Each Sat and Sunday the free... More

Park in the nearby Dock 52 area which is free. Take a walk down to this very small marina which includes a few shops and restaurants. Rent a pedal bike and ride over to Venice Beach/Santa Monica Pier on the bike trail.

My husband and I stopped by the Fisherman's Village last week while in Marina Del Rey. Unfortunately, this tourist area is pretty worn and showing its age. There were only a few shops and restaurants and they didn't look appealing. The best thing in the village are the bike rentals and the ice cream shop. The view was also very... More

Fisherman's Village offers a variety of restaurant, shop and boat rental options in a lovely waterside setting. It is fun to simply sit on one of the benches and watch the fishing boats come in and watch the sea lions. The free weekend concerts are a nice plus.

This place was somebody's brainstorm for a trouts attraction - probably 50 years ago. As far as I can tell, it never really caught on. On the jetty though, so you can see the boats come in and out of the marina!

Went here today, and were very disappointed in what was actually there...almost nothing. Lots of boats, but only a handful of tiny shops that were full of used items, for the most part, and very few restaurants. One shop, however, did ask if they could validate our parking, which was very nice...thank you Pammy!
