My friend and I decided last minute to have lunch in Manhattan Beach and were instantly attracted to The Strand House. The view was just perfect - thanks to the Southern California sunshine. The food was not bad either - the fish and chips were cooked just right and our lovely server recommended the perfect chardonnay to pair it with.... More

We shared a Cobb salad for lunch in a wonderful, outdoor, upstairs corner of a balcony that overlooked the Manhattan Beach Pier. Very nice atmosphere and wonderful meal. We did not have drinks, but they offer everything. One thing I wanted to try - but my inner diet coach said no - was the donuts! They looked delish!

We spent our second time at the Strand House and both orderd grilled prime filet of beef. Without reservation, we got a nice table for two at the bar - really, nothing to complain. Also a fine selection of wine.

This bar/restaurant doesnt really seem to fit into the Manhattan Beach environment. Tried a little too hard to be "trendy." Food was average, certainly not as elevated as the restaurant was trying to portray. Nothing wrong with the place, but probably wont be rushing back.

A friend and I were in LA for a conference and had a Sunday to spend relaxing. We went to The Strand House for breakfast around 10 AM. We asked for and received seating with a view of the ocean. The view is fantastic...gorgeous! (See photo) My friend ordered an egg dish and really liked it. I ordered a waffle... More

The Belgian waffle, the bacon eggs Benedict, and the croque Madame along with an order of bacon on the side were all wonderful.

Had two glasses of Hahn Pinot Noir that was delicious. Oysters on the half shell that were wonderful and a fantastic kale salad. Would love to go back.

Had a quick dinner for two. Shared a tasty mixed salad and we each had pizzas - homemade pepperoni and one w boar sausage. Both tasty, though much bigger than waiter suggested. You could share if you get salad or sides. Felt a bit pushed by waiter re portions.
