You would not come here for a fine dining experience, but if you are after a great position right on the promenade at Hermosa Beach a few steps away from the pier then Mermaids Restaurant is a great pub/bar to chill out and watch the world go by. There's nothing better than enjoying several cold beers with bar snacks -... More

Pros: Location, Location, Location!; The Calamari and Shrimp tacos = TASTY. Cons: The decor and interior feeling; the terrible acoustics; poorly designed bar having poor bartenders cramming next to each other while trying to effectively serve customers This bar is hit or miss. The staff, while typically friendly isn't not the most efficient bunch. Though I don't think its their... More

This is a cool little place right on the boardwalk to have a drink and a good meal. The location is great, even allowing you to get a direct view of a full moon from your bar stool. Seems like mostly locals here, friendly atmosphere and great music playing on their playlist while I was there - Aerosmith, Boston, GNR.... More

Nine of us had dinner here and for most of us it was good. Two of us had steaks that were dry and tough, but the rest of us found our food to be really good.

We were instantly treated as locals at this great restaurant and bar. Head to the back room for some fun pool or hang by the windows and check out the strand traffic

If the didn't have the location they have this would be just your ordinary bar. They didn't have any specialty cocktails and I'm not sure their bar staff were fully trained. But if you ask for a basic cocktail you should be fine. Maybe because they were so busy when I was there I got that feeling from them who... More

I just moved to town yesterday (NYE) and this was the first place I ventured to. Nice place, right on the beach by Hermosa Pier, seats facing the water, very friendly staff. We had an appetizer-the lobster mac n cheese- and it was the best I've ever had! Very lobster-y ; ) The rest of our meals and drinks were... More

Sitting on bar stools at the window (yeah, there are tables for the dating/kissing crowd too) with unobstructed views of the ocean! Watching beach bodies skating, biking, walking, and running along the Boardwalk right in front of my eyes is always delightful! That is the freedom of doing happy hour here, 7 days a week, from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00... More

Right on The Strand, with the best view of most Volleyball & Pier events. Right in the middle of all the action and a central point for everything.
