After many years of great burgers, beers, etc. this place closed. The owners of Sharkeez bought it, and kept it open as is for a while. Now being remodelled.

One of the Best Happy Hour's in Hermosa. Fish Taco's are some of the best in Hermosa. The 2nd story open air view of Pier Ave comes in second, right behind Hennessey's. Great place to people watch.

Been going to this bar for years and sorry to say, the food has turned into a total nightmare. Just awful and cheap...Frozen vegetables, uncooked fried fish, half cooked calimari, uncooked chicken, greasy burgers....And they use the cheapest of all cheapest mixes for drinks. They...More
