We had a great lunch with friends at this popular Venice hangout. The table outdoors are perfect to watch the world go by...the burgers were great, and so the grilled tuna. Wonderful selection of beers and friendly service. Our friends had a dog and she was treated like royalty! Would definitely recommend.

It was a two hour wait so I gave our name and went next door to wait because it is that good. I ordered the corn, the scallops, and the hot wings. Loved it all. My dad's fish tacos were alright. Service is always great especially in light of the fact that they r so busy they have a two... More

This is the best food and beer on Venice Beach. Just sit outside, drink beer and people watch. The wings and nachos were excellent. Daughter had the waffle and said it was delicious.

A good place to stay but a very expensive menu. Yes, you are in front of the beach; yes, you are in Venice beach...but you're not in a 5 stars restaurant. It's not a good choice if you want good value for money.

We went to this restaurant because of the reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! We ordered a variety of dinners and a 4-flight of beers. The scallops were the best I've ever had! The Cioppino was excellent - as was the grilled cheese sandwich! - May be the best people watching on earth!

I came here and brought a vegan burger and two regular burgers and some lemonade. The beers intrigued me but I was driving. It was all a good experience and I would certainly return. Good work guys!

Had a nice lunch here on a Friday afternoon. They have a varied menu and a good beer and wine list. I ate or sampled their tomato bisque soup, quesadilla, corn on the cob, scallops and mushrooms. All were very good to excellent except the scallops, which were a bit rubbery and the mussels, which were small and fishy tasting.... More

Recommend Venice Hi Hop XPA if you enjoy west coast style IPA. We had BATA (bacon, arugula, tomato, aioli on ciabatta) and burger; everything was delicious. Service was friendly and attentive. You may be seated at a long table right next to other groups but our situation did not seem awkward. Some patio seating was in the sun but we... More

We weren't sure why to eat but we kept walking and decided on this place. I'm so glad we did. The food was amazing. I'm a vegetarian and I like to try to eat organic and I couldn't have asked for a better place. The burgers were customizable and they even had a hard cider I liked (from Oregon). If... More

We love to eat outside so we waited for a table for 4 Took a bit longer than we thought due to people lingering with drinks way after their dinner was over. Hostess seemed frustrated as well but there was nothing she could do. Atmosphere was great the food was good the guys liked the Lamb burgers. Good place to... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
