Pork chops are divine!

Our group ordered the pork chops, ahi tuna, and house meatloaf which were huge portions but excellent. The pork was a stand out. The accompanying vegetables were very poor unfortunately, only down side to this restaurant which has a nice atmosphere and great service.

Food was excellent, service was great. Prices are on the high side but worth it. Save room for dessert, we tried 4 of them, all to die for!

We were here with a relatively large group, but it didn't affect the quality of the food at all. Our server was enthusiastic and really "sold" every dish. I sampled a bit of everyone's food, and there was not a single misstep in our dishes. If you're in the mood for quality, unassuming food, then this is your best bet... More

We've been going to Fonz's for years. It has a good selection on the menu and always several options for nightly specials. The husband and I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. Most recently we enjoyed the warm goat cheese salad, short ribs, seared ahi and wasabi mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious. Service is always excellent. It... More

Fonzies is a few steps away from MBBlvd by more civilized and perhaps 20% cheaper than FWD or MBPost. its less crowded and on a week night you can generally walk in and get a table. You can also get parking most of the time. Book on weekends and holidays. The food is a range from good salads, pasta, seafood... More

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

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
