Great lobster mac n cheese!

I just moved to town yesterday (NYE) and this was the first place I ventured to. Nice place, right on the beach by Hermosa Pier, seats facing the water, very friendly staff. We had an appetizer-the lobster mac n cheese- and it was the best I've ever had! Very lobster-y ; ) The rest of our meals and... read more

If the didn't have the location they have this would be just your ordinary bar. They didn't have any specialty cocktails and I'm not sure their bar staff were fully trained. But if you ask for a basic cocktail you should be fine. Maybe because they were so busy when I was there I got that feeling from them who... More

Sitting on bar stools at the window (yeah, there are tables for the dating/kissing crowd too) with unobstructed views of the ocean! Watching beach bodies skating, biking, walking, and running along the Boardwalk right in front of my eyes is always delightful! That is the freedom of doing happy hour here, 7 days a week, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00... More

Right on The Strand, with the best view of most Volleyball & Pier events. Right in the middle of all the action and a central point for everything.

Mermaids is steps from the sand and you get that awesome Pacific Zepher wind blowing threw the open doors. We went with friends during happy hour and the drinks where good, the beer was fresh. We decide to order a few of the items on the happy hour menu. To our surprise the Fish and Shrimp Tacos were really good.... More

It was a small place and not fancy, but the food and location were really good. Our waitress was very nice and efficient.

Come for the martinis, food and to be near the beach though no beach view until you walk out the door. Its a bit of an offbeat old time beach experience.
