The mermaid is back and is one of the best places to watch sunsets and have a cocktail in Hermosa Beach, good happy hour specials

So sad, this classic old dive bar/restaurant was closed on our October 2013 visit. Signs say somethign is going to happen there, but there was no activity.

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.

I ordered the Pork Chop dinner, and I was extremelly excited to say that it was wonderful. With the dinner, we got homemade Turkey Noodle Soup, a huge baked potato, and 2 thick cut amazing prok chops.

If you're looking for a mojito - this is not your place. Whisky on the rocks or Gin and tonic....this is home. The food is... food. Go for the experience, the old school bartenders, and the strong drinks. Your day at the beach will be MUCH more fun.

I really had a horrible experience with this place. I called to make a reservation for a large party and the person who answered the phone cut me off, said he didn't want to speak to me and then hung up.

Food is best value in town, Atmosphere right out of the 50's, Bring cash, bartender usually to busy to deal with plastic... Great location on the strand, ample free parking which is amazing at the beach.... A must if you are in the area
