Been coming here for years. The menu is varied, with something for everybody. This is not a five star up-scale restaurant. Those are down the street. It is a five star family restaurant. The food is always good and plentiful, Salads are fresh and pot roast is available. Hamburgers are cooked to order, the lettuce is fresh as are the... More

We came here with another couple who had recommended it. The drinks menu is good and the food menu is extensive. The portions are really big and the food is lovely. Great service too.

We sat outside on the heated patio, very nice. They were extremely busy, yet the food was prompt and good. With 6 kids we were able to sit at 2 tables overlooking the street, felt like you were outside and yet the patio was closed in due to being cold.

Stopped in last night and there was a sign on the door saying they were closed until 6:00 am for maintenance. Seeing that I had just been dropped off they waved me inside and let me order to go. I ordered the special which was pumpkin lasagna and they were nice enough to give me a double portion, plus muffins... More

We really enjoyed eating at the Kettle. The first time we went super late at night after partying. Service was great and food was great. We all got completely different types of food and it was all great. The 2nd time was just my boyfriend and I after watching the waves at the Pier, we sat outside that time and... More

4 of ate there on a cold, windy Sunday night in December 2014. Ordered steak (ok), fish and chips (good) and crabcakes (good). Meals came with sides and salad. Service good, pleasant and friendly, and on his toes. He reminded me of Keanu Reeves (its handy to look like an actor in California). Our bill came to just over $90,... More

Manhattan Beach is a great town and The Kettle has yummy breakfasts. If you are catching a flight around noon, start your last day in LA by the ocean with good food. I liked the huevos rancheros and my husband enjoyed the crab Benedict.
