Very good , old style

Fonzes has a fine patina of good food and service. Nothing extra fancy but reliable dining experience. Mostly locals who know the whole crowd and servers. Pork chop is especially yummy! Happy hour menu is terrific as well.

We had a nice dinner here with several friends on a recent trip to Manhattan Beach. The Tortilla soup was very tasty and I really enjoyed the Pear salad that I ordered to go with it. Others in our party ordered risotto, steak and the fish tacos. Everyone was very pleased with their food and the service was excellent. They... More

The place looks pld and smells funny. Having said that, the food was good and the service amazing. Meat was very well cooked and mashed potatoes tasty.

We happened upon this gem as we were wrapping up our day in Manhattan Beach. The service was very good and the server was able to make knowledgeable recommendations. We were seated in the far back of the restaurant, so the atmosphere was a little lost on us. My meatloaf was incredible and my husband's mahi mahi was just okay.... More

Stopped in for dinner. It wasn't crowded when we got our table at 7pm but it quickly filled up. I had a seafood risotto and it was excellent. My fellow diner had the Halibut and he said it was some of the best fish he has had. Our waitress was so very good. I would highly recommend a visit. Dinners... More

My wife and I, visitors from New Zealand, popped into Fonz's for dinner after a long trip from the US east coast. I went there because of a review on Yelp about racial discrimination that the owner admirably denied. This was one of the best meals we have had in years. The greeting was friendly and prompt, the waitress was... More

I have reviewed Fonz's before, but just had another fantastic meal and thought it worthy of more praise. Not sure why it is not the highest rated in MB. Try the Swordfish Tostadas. You will not be sorry.

Made reservations for a family of four. The best table was next to the rest rooms. But there was a nice table reserved for friends that came after us got that table , Why. they were more important even though we had earlier reservations , go figure. The person who waited on us was not impeccable as the owners state... More
