I will never eat here again. Guess why?

The food was average, even though the brie cheese on our sandwich was substituted with cheddar unknowingly. Olives were forgotten from my salad, and I requested water several times before having a pitcher delivered. The ambience and view made up for the lack thereof, then the waitress admitted the... read more

We sat outside on the patio overlooking the ocean -- terrific view of ships arriving at the Port of LA and dozens of sailboats. The "Skinny Pina Colada" was fantastic. I had pork carnitas. The portion was absurdly large and it was tasty, but the corn tortillas & beans were very average; not bad, but average. My friend had the... More

We came with friends to have lunch and ...we waited for 45 min. to get our food, the waiter brought what I specifically asked him not to. He even came and said that my burrito didn´t have cheese inside (one of the things I asked him not to do) when all the people in my party could see that there... More

Great location for outdoor dining in Long Beach. The patio is awesome and they have Tues & Wed happy hour from 5-10pm! This makes appetizers and drinks 50% off and well worth it! Their Ahi appetizer is one of the best I've had and there are lots of delicious items to choose from. I volunteer with an animal rescue and... More

This place is not pretentious. Location is great, right on the sand! I came here with some friends of different age--twenties to fifties and we all had fun! small dance floor but the live band was amazing! The food is pretty decent and service was great. The only negative comment is that they have some old worn-out furniture. To the... More

We've been pet sitting here in Long Beach and everyday walking Teddy around the outside of the La Palapa. The dog is big and would drag us over to a certain area of patio. Out comes Manuel to give our dog a big doggie biscuit! Since the patio area is dog friendly, we decided to take Teddy and have Happy... More

Like the casual atmosphere and location on the beach. It also has music at night with local talent and occasionally a well known one who visits. Dislike the crowded parking sometimes.

Don't miss this great ocean-side location for dinner. They also have a dog friendly patio so you can bring your other best friend along. Courteous and attentive wait staff.

Shared a meal with our son and daughter-in-law our first night in Long Beach. Menu is simple but food is way way above average. Fish tacos were great, atmosphere along the beach is great, service was only o.k. (had to remind our server about my 2nd beer, and BigEats doesn't like to remind anybody about his 2nd beer). Big caution:... More

Great happy hour place. Very good and cheap Marguerittas. I always have one too many and get way too drunk:). The carnitas nachos are to die for.
