We had lunch here after coming to Manhattan Beach to avoid the crowds at Santa Monica during the LA Marathon. Without a reservation there was a long wait for a table but we were served almost immediately in the bar area. It was great to be so close to the beach and the atmosphere was very nice. We all ordered... More

We held a 17 person dinner at the Strand and they put us in the middle of the dining room in a long table with windows all around so we could see the gorgeous beach view. The service was outstanding. Our head server was very attentive, had great suggestions for food and wine and was generally amazing. The food was... More

If you can find parking - and DO search out some of the surrounding parking garages you can get lucky and eat here. The lobster roll was delicious, the hamburgers perfect and the french fries - real French. One even said Bonjour to me. Eat your way through the good sized meals and move on to desert. If you get...

The food was amazing. Everything from the appetizer through dessert did not disappoint one bit. And, as if amazing food is not enough to offer patrons, The Strand House also has consistently GREAT customer service. We interacted with the hostess, several waiters, several bussers, and a manager who were all very kind and happy to go out of their way... More

Get Reservations! Don't even think about hitting this place at sunset and expect to walk in and get a table. It's not going to happen. Even on a weekday! I go here all the time. It is a primo neighborhood place. Without a doubt this restaurant has the best view of the Manhattan Pier. The food is good but you... More

The people watching was fantastic and it is a great beach spot. Our waiter was just amazing and super accommodating, he truly was just awesome. I will totally... More

Great place to eat!! The food is excellent along with the staff. You cannot beat the view of Manhattan Beach Pier. A little pricey but worth it.

First time here, we just stopped in for an adult beverage before Fusion Sushi up the street. Swanky looking place. Bartender pours a respectable drink. Pleasant people all around. The guy next to us at the bar got a grilled bone in pork chop and it looked great. When we left, he had nothing but a bone left on his... More

we had wonderful oysters and mussels as well as a bouillabaisse which was delicious at a window table - not much more you can ask for. Only one thing to be criticized : it was really noisy with the restaurant being completely full and even on the small table we had to lean over to understand our friends sometimes. the... More
