Great location

The location of this restaurant is excellent. It has great views. I sat at the bar in the lower level. Very trendy atmosphere and good service. The food was very good.

Had Sunday brunch at The Strand House and was pleasantly pleased with the service and the quality of food. As this is at Manhattan Beach it was a little pricey as one would expect, but the service was excellent and all 5 of our party had wonderful meals. I recommend the burger as it was outstanding. I shared it with... More

My boss and I went to dinner here while visiting clients on a business trip. Wow! Amazing! I had the kale salad which was out of this world. He had a fish dish which he loved. We had the doughnuts for dessert. Again, wow!! Can't wait to return again.

Had a few hours to kill in LA before flight so went here for lunch. Aged beef burger was fab as was the location and service. Well worth a visit as you can sit on the terrace and enjoy the view.

We dined here during a recent business trip and were impressed by the classy interior as well as the quality of the food. The high ceilings and huge windows gave the place a welcoming, airy feel. The food was just as awesome - fresh oysters, hand-cut frites and a good assortment of entrees (from fish to beef to pork). I... More

There are a few good restaurants in this street, like Rock&Fish across the street. This Strand House has a beautiful terrace overlooking beach and pier. The wine list is extensive and they have a special afternoon menu. Waiter Kenny was extremely friendly and helpful.

Located by the pier at Manhattan beach this is an upbeat restaurant with a fashionable menu. The service was prompt, efficient and personable. I had a Mediterranean sea bass on risotto with delicious sauce.

We have been several times. We were given gift voucher to go there when we moved to the South Bay. In some respects its a classic view restaurant - if you get there for sunset its great and that maybe as good as it gets…. The bar and restaurant are good for celebrity spotting if that is your deal. if... More

My friends and I rented bikes in Venice beach and we rode until Manhattan beach. We picked The Strand house for lunch and it proved to be a great choice. The environment was great, we were given a table viewing the beach. Since the day was quite sunny, the view was awesome. The food was also very good. I had... More
