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.

The person who waited on us was not impeccable as the owners state... More

My business colleague and I came here for dinner recently and met a friend of his from the area. Very cool spot, busy area with all types of people about. Based on the recommendation of the idiot that joined us I ordered the rib-eye (not bone-in) and it was very good, but wish I had ordered the halibut instead. Very... More
