We've been having an ongoing quest to find THE best fried chicken in the LA area over the past 2 years. There were many contenders, with some surprises and many disappointments. In our humble opinion, the Monday night fried chicken dinner for two at Tin Roof has been the most consistent and our favorite, topping even Bouchon and other worthy... More

I've been here twice, but only for lunch. Both times I sat outside on the patio which is very nice with greenery and a fountain. Lunch has choices of salads, sandwiches, pizzas and a few (expensive) entrees. I've had a sandwich (Turkey with brie) and salad (Cobb) and both were pretty good, but not out of the ordinary. My rating... More

I live in Manhattan Beach and go here as much as possible. I especially love their soup and salad lunch special. Favorite one is short rib sandwich with French onion soup. Yummmmm!

Very attractive interior. Varied menu and a nice wine list. But... The noise level can be difficult to deal with. The wait staff is pleasant and helpful and if you can snag a quiet table in the plant filled patio you're in luck.

We tried to get an outside table since we had the grandkids in tow (7th birthday) but they said the outside was booked. Since we didn't reserve, we took an inside booth. The noise level was a bit too loud. We ordered brussels sprouts and oysters on the half shell for starters, they were very good. We requested the kids'... More

What a lovely patio for dining. Lots of greenery, comfy seats and the tables are spaced nicely apart. Caramelized brussels sprouts were very good, as was the fig, bacon and blue cheese pizza and the blueberry ginger pie. The highlight was the basil jalapeño bourbon sour -- it was out of this world. Interesting cocktail menu and fast, friendly service

This restaurant is on the periphery of a strip mall shopping, dining area in Manhattan Beach. It was recommended to me and I'm glad I went. I wasn't really hungry so I just had a Caesar salad which was very tasty. The atmosphere was lively and popular; it is a good place to bring a date. They have a two... More

I don't usually write reviews and I'm SUPER picky about where I eat. This is my FAVORITE restaurant I've ever been too (and I've been to a lot of fancy places)!!! The food is amazing and the service is excellent! You'll definitely need reservations. It is a little pricey, but worth every penny! Oh and it's a great date place!

Lovely evening to dine on the patio but our wait staff must have gotten lost after placing our drink orders. He was gone forever. Specialty cocktail was unremarkable. Salad was imminently forgettable. The blue cheese fries stack was pretty good but otherwise the night was catching up with friends I hadn't seen in many years.

Very popular so reservations are likely a must. Patio seating is the way to go. Food is excellent. A very enjoyable experience.
