“Good lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

This was our first visit to Manhattan Beach, and we had no idea where to eat. This place looked ok from the outside - so we decided to give it a try. We didnt regret that. Nice staff, good food. Had a window table outside at the patio. Cant compare with othere restaurants in Manhattan Beach, but this was a safe place. Ok price for the food.

$48.00 parking ticket due to city manipulation of meter just outside restaurant. Enjoyed the food prior to a fast meter.

“Fast,easy, very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Fast, easy, very good at anytime you are feeling like! And 2 minutes from the beach!
From a salad to an hamburger you have a wide choice of food for all the family! My favorite is the avocado BLT.

“Great Food - Open 24/7”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a family owned restaurant with great food - I have never been disappointed. It has a great location in downtown Manhattan Beach just two blocks from the pier. An additional plus is that they are open 24/7.
