I ate here 20 years ago and wanted to bring the family during our trip to CA. It was even better than I remembered. The food and service were excellent, even pleasing the impossible to appease teens in the family.

I've been eating here for 15 years and the "mess" is my favorite breakfast in LA. On the weekend go early or you will be waiting a long time for a seat!

After reading all the reviews stating how long the wait was to get a table. We decided to eat here on a Tuesday morning. We were seated immediately and had drinks before 2 minutes elapsed. My wife ordered a Denver Omelet I ordered The Mess both were cooked perfectly. My wife doesn't like breakfast all that much, but in this... More

So FRESH! I had the best omelet ever and my husband had "The Mess". Everything was so delicious, if we'd had time we would have gone again the next day.

Honestly, the best breakfast/brunch anywhere! I have been coming here for many years. The food is the best hometown, comfort food you could ever imagine! And, for the healthy bunch (or when I'm trying to be a little "better" there are plenty of awesome healthy options. If you like eggs + comfort - The Mess is the best thing you... More

Enjoyed a great brunch on a Saturday morning at this waterside diner. Not a fancy place, not big inside, but there's also outside seating areas. It's popular, so there's a wait to get in, but worth it. Huge portions of really good diner food. I ordered the "half mess" of eggs, potatoes, ham & cheese. It was more than I... More

Awesome BLT and Italian sub! Servers were very friendly. The only thing that killed the atmosphere were the pigeons walking around.

I happened on this restaurant for Thursday lunch around 1 pm and didn't have much wait. Lots of sandwich choices (tuna salad, curried chicken, patty melt, fish & chips) around $9. Several salad choices (sesame chicken, shrimp & crab Louie, Mediterranean chopped, etc for around $10-14) and if you're not too hungry, you can request a "petite" portion for $2... More

The view is great and the location is awesome. If it's warm enough sit outside and enjoy the marina. We ate their for breakfast and the blueberry pancakes were delicious. The fruit salad had actual blackberries and strawberries in it which was a nice treat considering most places just give you a weak melon melody. The staff was friendly and... More

Great place for breakfast. Food and service both are very good. This place sits right on the marina so lots of boats to look at. They have plenty of outside dining area but not a lot of inside area. Little pricey but this is to be expected for the area.
