Great spot to people watch

We use to go here when it was located down the street. Now it's on the second floor, over looking pier avenue. We went mainly for the people watching but were pleasantly surprised by the food. I had the ribs and they were tender and juicy. My wife had the turkey burger and said it was very good... read more

An older pub that is in need of a face lift. Washrooms were disgusting and no one seemed to care. Old TV's with poor picture this place doesn't compete with the pubs street level.

We took grilled fish Mahi Mahi and pasta Marinara. The fish filet was dry and nearly cold, quite small. The pastas were much too cooked. Avoid those plates or go somewhere else. The terrace is not even pleasant.

Worst margarita I've ever had in my life - 90% water - but that's probably my own fault for ordering a margarita on the rocks at a non-Mexican place, my husband's beer looked like a better order. Fish tacos were okay - I've had better but definitely had worse too. Service was good and it was a nice place to... More

My husband and I went here two times while visiting on vacation. Excellent service from the two beautiful female bartenders. The fish tacos were outstanding. The manager Gary was so awesome because he shipped back the tablet we left at the restaurant. We look forward to going back their when we return in Sept. Great food, Great service, and excellent...

I went to Hermosa Beach for business meeting and a training in Redondo Beach. A colleague and I from Texas parked in the area were this restaurant is located in the middle of the afternoon. We read several menus from different restaurants and were attracted to this one and ventured to go in. We were a little skeptic because at... More

Great little sports bar with good burgers and cold beer. My son and I stopped in FFFF after walking The Strand to Manhattan Beach and back. Hit the spot on all levels....and we caught the baseball All-Star Game (bonus).

IF you eat here, be prepared for the worst fish and fries EVER... I ordered the fish and fries combo (lunch portion but it was dinner time), the fish was soggy and slimy, the menu stated beer battered but it was more like wrapped in paper. The fries were not fresh (frostbitten) and seasoned as stated in the menu, The... More

I went on St. Patrick's day right after the parade so the place was packed. I had the lobster chowder. It was good. Everyone around me had it and I heard nothing but compliments. I had the creole shrimp quesadilla. It too was good. The only criticism I have is the food was a little salty but I seem to... More

I have been here a couple of years ago and had a wonderful evening. This time it was a busy evening and hard to get a seat. Ordered mussels, which is one of my favourites. But when I got it most of my mussels were still closed (and therefore dead before they were cooked). I made a complaint and they... More
