Great spot to grab a beer and a meal

The Ale House is located right on the Venice boardwalk and it is very popular. It serves a wide range of beers and great pub food. Most of the patrons are young and the place is fairly noisy but the atmosphere is great.

Food was nice, large portions and good people watching location. Whilst i didn't have a bad experience i just felt the place seemed unclean. Lots of flys around when eating our food which was gross. Ginger and lemon drink was yum!

We had a supper there. My only regret was not to try their beers (they had a nice selection) but the food was nice (original, organic, etc.) and the service was outstanding. We tried some of their deserts that were also very nice and original. It is in a great location, with a parking right next to it. Definitively a... More

I came here on the 24th Oct 2015; my wife and I had passed it on many occasions during the previous 5 days so decided to give it a shot, we were staying approx 40 metres away at the Rose Hotel. The staff and service were great, as was the atmosphere and food, the only negative was when the waitress... More

Ate here twice over a couple of days. Definitely the best place to eat on the Venice Boardwalk. Can recommend the burger which is cooked to your liking and REALLY good. The rest of the meals were also good and seemed fresh and well prepared. The Ale House is also well known for its boutique beers and the few I... More

I asked if I could sit at a table for a beer, and was told, quite rudely that it was for food only, and pointed towards the bar. I sat at the bar for about 5 minutes without getting served, whilst waving money around trying to attract attention. Eventually - I got a beer, and the beer was excellent. It... More

Came here on a business trip. We wanted to be closer to the beach and get some good beer. This place definitely had a good selection but the food wasn't memorable. It was a good location and we spent some time walking around the area. The service was alright - nothing to write home about.

This is the best food we've had in LA so we came back a second time. The tuna with garlic mash was so good I decided to make my own version of it! It had vegetables and everything! Their home made ginger ale is excellent. All of which has an amazing view of the Pacific! The only problem is that... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
