Add together a fantastic choice of beers, delicious food, polite, friendly and attentive staff with a view of the Pacific Ocean and you have the Venice Ale House! If you're lucky you may be served by "Max", he made what was a great lunch in the sun with my wife and daughter, perfect! If you're visiting Venice beach, make sure... More

Many reviews here use "organic" and "stereotypical Californian" to describe this place, which conjures up the wrong image. This is a terrific beer joint with 20 plus great choices on tap that also serves terrific food. I've had a turkey burger, ahi poke, and the sesame crusted ahi sandwich on my last three visits. All really, really good. I love... More

Nice place to stop for a beer. The staff was friendly and eager to help. Food was good. Not typical bar food, but I guess it was "stereotypical Californian" organic food. And it tasted great. Large selection of craft beers, but also wines and drinks. Sitting outside to watch the boardwalk is fun, but the atmosphere inside is great as... More

We just stopped in for a beer at about 10pm but ended up having a couple. The selection of real ales were impressive; I only wish I could have sampled more! My girlfriend had a mojito which she felt was up to scratch! And as we'd just arrived in the US the barstaff were very understanding as we fumbled about... More

This place is a must while staying at Venice Beach, the selection of local beers are great and the good was tasty, we had the beef burger which was very tasty and the tuna poke which was fresh and delicious. Try and get a table outside in the boardwalk side where it is all happening.

Classic California beachfront place. Large variety of craft beers, and almost no greasy junk food. No pop. No french fries. The menu was heavy on organic, and the staff was pretty helpful. The highlight was the people watching along Venice Beach. I ordered a carne asada quesadilla, and it was so greasy and messy as to be largely inedible.

Didn't get to try the food. Beer list is very solid. I perched on the edge of the bar. Bar is a very social place for the staff. More social amongst themselves than with customers. Barman forgot my order, forgot that I had a tab. Will revisit and get a boardwalk seat and try the food. Hopefully i turn up... More

We were on Venice beach last week, and wanted to get a drink and bit to eat. We had passed this place on our way onto the beach, and I mentioned to my husband that it looked like a good place to go. After getting some time on the beach, I looked at my trusty Trip Advisor App! The one... More
