Lunch on the beach

Right off the pier, we had a great lunch. Had a enough decent beers on tap to satisfy our group. Reasonable prices and good service.

Cool bar in hermosa beach with a good selection of beers and snacks. I had the Costa Rican ceviche and it was pretty good. Lots of tv's everywhere so a good place to chill out and watch a game .Will be going back soon.

We had the chicken pesto sandwich and the chicken BBQ sandwich and both were pretty good. Staff was friendly but we sat outside and it seemed like the forgot about us once or twice.

We had three families, including 3 toddlers, for lunch at Watermans recently. We were able to stake out a large part of their patio seating; and I can't say enough about how attentive and good our waitress was! The menu was large enough to appeal to everyone, and we were all happy with our selections. We were impressed with their... More

Called in here for a drink, stayed for a couple more thanks to friendly service and a nice laid back atmosphere. Shock Top was the drink on the day, really refreshing drink.

Great location and good vibe. The drink specials were good as well. There is a nice kids menu but the best overall dish for the adults was the Tuna Poke Bowl. Make sure and get that if you like poke and want to eat healthy.

Bar environment with solid food and lots of healthy choices for those so inclined. The poke Tuna wrap was a stand out and chilean sea bass also very tasty, although if your hungry order an app or side if you want the sea bass. (Small portion) Kids eat free on weds and it apppears they have really great specials daily.

After hours of hiking, we decided to head to Hermosa for dinner. I didn't consult trip adviser and on impulse decided to give Waterman's a try. We easily found seating on the patio area, had fast service with Danielle and the burgers were the best I've had in a long time. The menu was varied enough. The inside area was... More

We visit Hermosa 2-3 times a year, it's like our home away from home. Hermosa is a laid back, super friendly beach/surfer town. In this special little place, there exists a special little bar. Drinks are great, vibe is cool, food is excellent and the staff is awesome. Did I mention the prices are totally reasonable? We are a well... More

Watermans is our favorite spot for people watching on Pier Avenue. You can't beat late weekend morning on the patio with a bloody Mary or mimosa. But it's not just the view or location - the food is wonderful. Lots of healthy choices. The hummus is served with feta and olives - so yummy. The salads are huge and fresh.... More
