In the evenings this place is heaving with people. Its near the beach, but the view of the sand and the sea beyond it is obscured by the cars in the car park. I stopped by for a late breakfast, almost, but not quite a brunch. Eggs with chilli, potatoes and a salad was nice enough, but I've had better.... More

We have eaten here twice on different trips and both times had an excellent meal. The place is always busy and they have an extensive craft beer list and a menu full of orgnanic and interesing food. The seafood ceviche was excellent as was the burger and beetroot and goat cheese salad. The only small compliant it that there is... More

Don't know why this is listed as Los Angeles. It's about 25 feet from the sand of Venice Beach. Great place to have a beer and food and watch local scene and enjoy some local musicians busk. Food is healthy and delicious. The chicken nachos are fantastic. One order is enough for two people. Not your usual trash, but are... More

We were looking for some good seafood and boy did we find it. Delicious food and great service. Highly recommend the mussels, best I've ever had in the US. I would love to try the scallops, too. I bet they are incredible. Great wine and beer list. Can't go wrong.

Great location and worth waiting for an outside table. Fairly loud and manic inside the bar area but a good range of beers with lots of interesting ones. Tried a tangerine lager which was really good. There was a skateboard of beers which needs to be seen but would not mix well with driving latter! Outside provides the perfect spot... More

This is one of the most popular bar/restaurants on Venice Beach. It has an interior bar, and an uncovered patio. The food is good (for bar food), and has a very nice selection of beers. Service was unimpressive. We were seated by the hostess, and waited about 15 minutes before the waitress approached us.

Venice is an attractive and almost gourmet gesture pub on the Venice boardwalk - but generally extremely busy, so be prepared to wait 15-30 minutes on weekends. There's a great selection of microbrews and the burger is very good. Compared to a many other food choices on the beach, this is one of the best, hence the popularity.

Don't bring grandma. This is a noisy, cheeky, fun, casual place that feels like your local bar on a Friday night. It's right on the Venice Broadwalk, so the passing parade is always very interesting. Sometimes musicians set themselves up just opposite the outside area and the volume can be a conversation stopper - so go for breakfast if you've... More

This place has a great casual vibe for a casual lunch on a sunny day before hitting the beach. The food menu is vast, well priced and good portion sizes. I visit here time and time again.

We visited Venice Beach Ale House during our visit to Santa Monica and Venice Beach LA California - (Yes sounds great and very exotic doesnt it). After walking along the beach from Santa Monica Pier and negotiating our way past cyclists, skate boarders, film makers and street performers we decided to stop off here for a drink and a bite...
