Meal, service atmosphere is really good and Happy hour is a bonus too! The meals are always freshly cooked, the only fault is the don't serve deserts.

Went for dinner, younger crowd and we didn't see any kids but we had kids. Food was okay, nothing special and service was average. Burgers had by two in our party, kids had veggie quesadilla, and burrito with chicken. I can speak for the burrito, reminded me of chipotle really. Kids liked the quesadilla and i guess burgers were just... More

I really enjoyed this place, good vibes anywhere around this area and live music to listen too, sit outside in the sun or inside.

As first time Hermosa Beach-goers, there were several choices by the pier. This place seemed busy (a good sign) and welcoming. So, we went in. Happy hour was a good deal - half price drinks. We decided to get some of their small bites, and here's where we had a pleasant surprise: great pulled pork sandwich, and believe it or... More

Just tried to have dinner at watermans. We finally got our food. It was very plain and uninspiring. After dinner was completed, I finally got the beer I ordered before dinner. Nice location but everything else is terrible

Good friendly place on the pier. Got a couple buckets of beer, and some cheap tacos during happy hour. Quick service, not to loud, and people watch while sitting outside. I would recommend stopping in having a coolndown after a day in the sun.

The menu looks cool, the place looks good but... We did have to wait almost one hour to get just a part of our order. We did finish our lunch and my daughter was still waiting for her chicken fingers ! The food is not great at all and there are so much restaurants in the street that you should... More

Went for a beer and had some nice pizza. The place is packed on the weekend and has a pub vibe with all the TVs and sports vibe.
