We sat outside in their enclosed patio and enjoyed watching people on stand up paddle boards and sail boats float by. There were some pretty entertaining birds to watch too.

For me it's a late lunch afternoon delight. Sitting outside under an umbrella, looking over King Harbor towards Redondo Pier sipping a crisp Savi-blanc while attacking one of their devine crab steam pots! Dose life get any better? Good food, conversation and frirnds. Don't rush take your time, its only 3pm and the happy hour rush is hours away

First we sat at the bar for a drink. While there we noticed a bad smell, like something wet and rotting. So we moved away to a table to enjoy our meal. The staff were fast and friendly.

I have never been to this restaurant chain. The crab pot boil served two persons. the food was excellent and the view of the harbor was beautiful and peaceful. I would return if i am ever in Redondo beach pier again.

We went here expecting fresh seafood, being so close to the sea, I went for the crab cakes, I was disappointed , it was minced , crab cakes should be chunky. The fish and chips were ok but a bit greasy, overall it enjoyed it, but a lot of kids running about, so not much atmosphere, not the best I'm... More
