What a location and service! Magnificent.

A local friend of mine picked a great choice for brunch! Top notch service, excellent view of the Manhattan Pier, town, and beach. Excellent food. A solid restaurant. Well done Strand House.

I stumbled upon this place.....was pleased that they had brunch on a Saturday...and ALL DAY! I was alone so I ate at the downstairs bar....Alex was my bartender and served up THE BEST Bloody Mary and the best Strawberry Mojito. I had the Huevos Rancheros.....beyond yummy. The shredded pork on the bottom was a surprise! I cried when I finished... More

Well worth it's 5 star rating amongst the tough competition in Man Beach. Front of house staff impeccable. Serving staff friendly and knowledgable. Food excellent . My wife had the mussels fresh and piquant . I had the Alaskan Halibut . Beautifully cooked. Great views , great evening . We'll be back.

Had dinner last night as two couples. Great food and service and wonderful view of the ocean. However it was so noisy we could barely hear each other. People were having a great time on a Tuesday night! Highly recommend their take on a Smore for dessert!

Stopped by The Strand House for late lunch on Sunday. The location is the ultimate - on the strand. Absolutely stunning views and clean, cool modern decor - loved. We were seated outside on balcony and had great views of pier and people watching on street. Nice menu and presentation. Loved my champagne cocktail. I had an excellent Cobb salad.... More

The food is excellent and somewhat pricy. Parking can be a hassle, but there is a valet a block away that will make it easier. Unfortunately it is so noisy that having a conversation with anybody other than next to you on the table is virtually impossible. They have a $12 desert consisting of 5 different donuts that, no matter... More

We went for lunch on a beautiful July day and the open windows, blue sky, and a fabulous view of the ocean made this a remarkable lunch. We started with strawberry mojitos and moved on to grilled fish tacos and a Maine lobster roll. Both were very good, although I wish the Lobster roll would have had less aioli as... More

My husband and I were on our way to Bora Bora and had a 6 hour layover in LAX. Left the airport for a bit to check out Manhattan Beach and get dinner. We were given one of the best spots in the restaurant with a beautiful view, and we were able to watch a gorgeous sunset during our meal.... More

We had a really fun dinner at this popular Manhattan Beach Restaurant. Great views of the ocean. Great service. We had a wonderful waiter who was sweet as pie. It's a fun environment and a busy popular spot. The food was OK.. nothing to write home about, but totally fine. Salads were good. Pizza was kind of blah. It's expensive,... More
