“Tasty food at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

This is a great restaurant right in Manhattan Beach. There are tables inside and out on the Main Street. The wait staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The food is delicious , the portions are huge and they only charge $5.00 to share . They even divide the dish for you!
When it came to dessert time, the waitress brought out a cake with a candle. My husband and I had quietly toasted my birthday, and the waitress had overheard!
She just brought the dessert on her own!! If you're in the area, definitely treat yourself to dinner at Fonz's!

“Good food and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This is our second meal at this restaurant. The food has been very good and the staff is great. Try the delicious halibut or any other main dish. Good appetizers also. We will go back again.

“Warm & Lively”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I feel comfortable eating alone at the bar or a table and it a great place for friends to meet. Quiet enough to meet for business too. Food has been consistently good for years.

We come here often and really enjoy the service, food and atmosphere. My favorite is the rack of lamb and the seafood risotto.

“Sit at the bar and enjoy...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We are close to Fonz's and love the laid back feel of this great restaurant. It was founded by some big time Volleyball players and still attracts that crowd. But, it is a great spot to end the beach day.

First, say hey to Danny at the door and then head to the bar. They pour a great drink and we always start with an ap there. Too many to even begin to recommend. My favorite is the shrimp and sweet hot sauce with a little rice. It's a crave food.

Then go and sit and have a dinner either on the patio or inside. I like the patio because you get all the folks walking by and the great sea smell. Nice!

As far as dinner, you cant go wrong with whatever the special is or a great steak! All the sides are fantastic, then get a nice bottle from the cellar. I have had everything from the sea bass to the fillet and trust me, they are all fantastic.

All in all, one of the best down here for food and service.
