Beachfront Surprise!!

We popped in to the Venice Ale House at beachfront and Rose Ave by chance, just to have a beer and chill out for a minute. One look at the menu, seeing plates go by, & all the great local ales on tap had the place looking very enticing overall. The joint was definitely jumping when we were first... read more

There was a certain vibe about this place and we were lucky to get seated outside. We ordered a Beetch and Cobb salad which arrived shortly. It was very delicious and we wouldn't mind coming back here.

They have a good variety of food here, from burgers to pasta to egg dishes. I had an omelet which was terrific.

This is simply the best place to eat and drink at Venice/Santa Monica beach. Fish tacos are amazing. Ale choices very wide. We had the best beer of all times here (Karl Strauss Mosaic Session Ale). Staff is friendly, location amazing, you can sit outside or inside. the only bad thing about it is that sometimes it's a bit too... More

Very cool places to sit out and enjoy watching the world go by. Nice food and great beer. Service could be better, but overall a great place to eat. Expect to wait for a table when peak time

This place is a breath of fresh air and high quality like a 5 star restaurant. The ambiance is fantastic with cool hip people and always buzzing with great energy and music. The food is top notch and something you never find on the venice boardwalk, especially from an Ale house. It is more like a trendy restaurant with top... More

A nice stopover on the Venice promenade with a great selection of beers and dishes. Their kombucha/beer mixes are delicious and refreshing!

Very noisy and crowded. Sit down if you can. Plenty of beers to choose from. We ate the wings, quesadillas and the nachos. They did not disappoint and a reasonable price Saw Jessie Spencer from 'house' and 'chicago fire' having a few drinks too

Stopped here for some refreshments and was provided outdoor table and chairs. Great selection of beers for me and my wife enjoyed their Sangria. Greta place to just sit and watch the world go by. When we needed to head back to LAX, they arranged for a cab to come pick us up. Great service!

Delicious and very filling, real food (amongst some crazy scary places), organic and plenty of options for all taste buds. Nachos are delish! Plus plenty of local/West Coast brews on tap -- the Skate of Beers taster is a MUST!! Prices are on the high end, but that's only because it's on the Boardwalk.

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.
