A Fun Place to Relax, Drink, and Eat

We had brunch on a Saturday with a large group, 13 people, so we had about an hour wait. The wait was no issue since it was a nice day and the bar and coffee bar were both open. We were able to enjoy a couple of drinks before eating. Three of us ordered Mimosa's so we split a champagne... read more

What a treat to dine outside right at the marina. Started off with zesty bloody Mary's and seated within just a few minutes to enjoy a bountiful breakfast. Had the cheese and mushroom omelet and it was outstanding with fresh fruit and pumpkin muffin. Service is very good too. Could have eaten there every morning of our stay but didn't... More

Fabulous, unpretentious diner food. We had this place recommended to us by a local when we were staying in the area and I'll admit, half the reason we decided to give it a shot was the name. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a good pun, but no matter why we tried it, I'm glad we did. Fun... More

Environment is always fun. First time ever ate inside so that was not nearly as nice. Food portions were enormous, should have asked for half portions. Tuna salad was very average, fries very good, however.

I'll tell - Yum! The family decided to try this Diners, Drive-in's and Dives restaurant and all were happy. The inside space is cozy however there is plenty of room on the patio. Overlooking the marina and enjoying almost anything you could ask for was a treat. We went for breakfast, but some of us were drawn to the lunch... More

Having moved to this area this month. I found this little gem on day one. Open only for breakfast and lunch, this place combines harbor-front ambiance with comfort food in huge portions. Being featured in the "Drive in and Dives" show on Food TV sometimes says "stay away" to me, but I can say this is a place worth the... More

Whenever we visit the Long Beach area we always try to eat at Schooner or later. It's usually excellent. This time on August 15, 2015, I ordered a Reuben sandwich with onion rings. For some reason the Russian Dressing on the Reuben has been souped up with horseradish. I always order lots of real horseradish to do my own thing.... More

We checked out this place on our latest trip to LA and glad we did :) The bloody Mary was pretty close to the best one I've had ever! and you're able to grab one while you wait for your seat. Extremely nice weather so we sat outside. Beware it's easy to over eat here! I opted to try the... More
