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

We were staying in the LA area after the Stevie Wonder show recently and I was looking for a good diner in the area and Tripadvisor point me to this establishment. 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.

Going here for years. The owners and staff are friends of the family by now. The baked goods are always made fresh and excellent. Breakfasts are good and the healthy choices are amazing. It does get crowded and the wait can be long but it's worth it. Only bad part is no air conditioning and it can get really hot... More
