Great Experience

Entree options were very expansive and portions were very large! Excellent quality and value. Wait staff left a bit to be desired but the dinner itself was worth the trip!

We called this restaurant to make a reservation for 10:30pm. Since they claim to close at 11:00 pm, we thought it would be a good idea to confirm our time was ok. On the phone, the hostess told us we did not need a reservation and to just show up. When we arrived at 10:15pm, the door was locked. We... More

This is a regular that we go to on every business trip we take to Torrance California. Very nice atmosphere and nice people. The food is limited, guess it is local favorites, no real steak selections and the portions are rather small for a waterfront location, but the views of the marina are nice.

Sitting on the marina this was a lovely place to eat and drink. We had the Happy Hour special menu (available from 3.30 to I think 5.30) which was 3 courses for $19.99. We had a Garden salad, followed by Fish & chips and a chocolate sundae to finish. As you can imagine we were fit to bursting after that!... More

This is a large place and easy to find with adequate parking located overlooking the marina. Views are awesome. The food was good but our server was inattentive. We ordered the Manhattan Clam Chowder which was very good and the chowder crackers very fresh. It reminds me of what I had at Jones Beach when I was younger. We were... More

We were recommended to grab a bite here by our airbnb host. we shared the grilled artichoke with pesto aioli and the swordfish entree. Both were delicious. Service was nearly perfect--friendly but not invasive. We had a view of the ocean. The dining area is comfortable and clean. Were thinking about coming back tomorrow!

we were seated quickly and the service was attentive and quick. A scoop starter was lovely, the sauce spicy but good. The mussels and clam starter also very good. The broth with it was nuclear hot (temperature). The bread soaked this up well, this is also very good. The main's of pasta & scallops was delicious not to creamy and... More

We had a group of 21 family members for a memorial dinner. Everything was great-- from the person who helped with menu pre-planning to the delicious food and drink itself. Excellent table service and marina views too. Particular standout on the menu is the sand dabs which are local fish. Yes it's pricey but a very special experience.

The food here is quite good, but they more than let you know about it at the cash register. I suspect much of their trade is to the tourist crowd. $29 for at best six ounces of swordfish? Come on!
