Great Venue. Good food.

Everything considered, it was a really nice restaurant experience. Large glass windows overlook Manhattan Beach and quick service kept the booze/food coming. As a Southeastern oyster snob, I thought the oysters were disappointing. The braised lamb shank was good but not worthy of a 2nd order if... read more

Everything considered, it was a really nice restaurant experience. Large glass windows overlook Manhattan Beach and quick service kept the booze/food coming. As a Southeastern oyster snob, I thought the oysters were disappointing. The braised lamb shank was good but not worthy of a 2nd order if I ever end up back there. The wine (regular and dessert) and the... More

I was in LA for a work conference and this was recommended for supper. We had a variety of pizza and appetizers and then had steak. The food was really tasty. They had great service staff as well. The views of the water from here were great and made this a work event to remember

This place is a standout, mainly because it has a perfect view of the Pier and Pacific. Food is good, pizza to Filets!

The Strand House has a yummy ever changing menu. Fantastic views of the Manhattan Bean Pier and Pacific Ocean. The food is exceptional. Have never had a bad meal. The must have big treat are the fresh made donuts. Only draw back is the noise. At times, its difficult to hear the person across the table and carry on a... More

I loved this restaurant! It is right on the beach and has amazing views from any table in the restaurant as the whole back side is glass. I loved it! I went with a friend for a girls lunch and besides the awesome views, the restaurant is lovely. We decided to split an appetizer, salad and pizza and we were... More

First and foremost the choices for noise do not include cacophonous, this would bettter describe this restaurant. For the price of meals this restaurant offers, one would believe they might be able to eat their meal in peace. Maybe this is where I should back off since it is a beach side location. But, I have and still do enjoy... More

Stopped in this place after we saw an advertisement for one of our favorite chefs in Denver. Troy G of TAG. Probably the nicest view in MB, large restaurant, and the food was great. We ran into Troy and his wife after their event while in the area. I'll make this a normal stop while there next week.

This will be fast. The place was packed at noon on Thursday for lunch with beautiful people. The view was great. The menu was limited - not enough choices among the salads for those watching their weight. The prices were more than most places. The good part was that my friend was not charged for her $14 bowl of onion... More

All locals recommend this restaurant. So I went to check it out: The food is delicious. The service is good. The hostesses are friendly, and work well with SMS texting. However, tables are set so close to each other that I felt like I am almost sitting in the lap of the person from my neighbor table.
