Despite being a sports bar inside, once you're sat outside on 3rd Street in the sun with a phenomenally tasty Texas Burger and a Sierra Nevada IPA, you don't care about the whooping and hollering inside as the Dodgers get turned over by the Cardinals. This is Santa Monican al fresco dining at its best. Delicious.

Whenever I visit Santa Monica for a weekend get away I have only one place that I go for my nightlife scene and scene "Yankee Doodles." I have not been there this summer yet, but I have been coming here for many years. The food and drinks are good, it is in a good neighborhood, and just a short walk... More

Y.D's was a fun place to go with friends and dates for pool and food/drinks. They are closed for renovations…don't know when they will open up again…so I must go to the Marina or Washington Blvd to get my pool fix! ARG!

Took the grandkids for lunch and asked for seats outside. We all enjoyed the music, and the sunshine, and didn't have to worry about all the kids wanting to talk at once, and bothering other people. Kids were so excited to come here with us, and even though the food order took a while to come out, we had a... More

Average food, horrible service, no drink refills. Nothing is worse than watching servers standing around talking while your glass is empty. Wouldn't go back. I can't bring myself to leave a lousy tip, I end up feeling sorry for the servers, I figure they haven't been properly trained.

Lots of games, dart boards, and pool tables - a fun place for an office party. Food is your typical "pub-fare" and the staff is very nice.

Have been here a few times, great place to go to after a day of work. Good bar food, plenty of TV's and pool tables. The one draw back, lots of kids running around, which is something you don't find in a sports bar. I guess that's not a terrible thing, but makes for noise and takes away from relaxing... More

We had a great meal with excellent service from Erica. Was so nice to find a New Zealand Sav Blanc on wine list. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

This is both a bar (pooltables and many screens featuring baseball) and a restaurant. Nice draft beers and apart from the burgers also healthy options available. The waiter Justin was very attentive. A lively experience.

Santa Monica is one of my favorite areas in Southern California. While shopping in the area, you definitely work up an appetite. This restaurant is a great option with menu options that can satisfy the whole family. From salads to burgers and drinks for everyone - you'll find something for everyone. Our server was very friendly and efficient. We will... More
