I go to LA once a month and I always stay around Hermosa beach. Love to start the day with breakfast at ocean's. The guys are always nice, food is good and price is affordable. It's cozy without being cheezy. The only downside is ..they don't make lattes. That being said ..it is a 40's dinner so I guess it... More

This place is cramped and always has a wait but the menu is varied and everything tastes good. Once you get a table the service is attentive and the food comes out quickly. Go hungry!

The Ocean Diner is a very special place to eat at. Not only is the food exceptionally good, but the atmosphere takes you back in time. The restaurant has a nostalgic feeling. It is very clean and upbeat. Staff is always attentive and I have never had a bad meal here. The breakfasts are great, as well as the lunches... More

I do love diners and always search them out looking for those special ones. This one is good, but won't make my top 10 list. The owner was very... More

We met my son, all of us from out of town at this very popular diner. A few minutes wait was well worth it. A really great selection on the menu.
