Great spot to eat, drink and take Venice in

We recently stayed at Venice Beach for 4 nights. Every time we walked past the ale house was pumping, full of people, but after all it has a great location to take in the views and people watch. On our last day we made an effort to get there for lunch and were glad we made it there. They place... read more

Very nice place to have a pint of very good beer and something to eat. Absolute stunning choice of beers on tap (look for the IPAs). With you beer, try also the sandwiches that are something of special.

My husband and I love Venice and the beach and boardwalk area so it was a great surprise to find an establishment that not only has an outstanding craft beer selection but a wonderful menu as well. First of all as MI born and bred we like good craft beer. I like a good wheat ale. Venice Ale House did... More

Good surprise. Excellent food with value for money andcfast service.Try the quesadillas as appetizers and burgers as main dish. Very good selection of beers, cider and wines. And on the top of that a nice view of Venice Beach.

My wife and I were visiting a friend in Pasadena, CA who recently had cancer surgery at City of Hope. We decided to go to Venice Ale House because of the ratings on TripAdvisor. It's in a great location right across the road from the beach and along the Ocean Front Walk where so many interesting people travel. Upon arriving... More

The food here is great as is the location but they really don't like customers. If you want a table you have to eat. Instantly. Don't think "it's 11am, perhaps an aperitif and then I'll eat at lunchtime". We had some really nice food but as soon as we had finished, the bill to harass us back out the door.... More

I ordered an "Acai bowl" that was served in a cup. So disappointing, it was one spoon of Acai and a bit of musli and fruits. I left the restaurant hungry! They don't have low fat milk too. My mom ordered scrambled eggs with potatoes that was ok. Definitely not coming back.

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!

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.

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

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
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.
