Down at the beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean,The Strand House rises elegantly and iconically above the breakers. Like in an oceanfront home, friends become family and strangers become friends.

Excellent customer service. Love Sunday brunch. My favorite champagne is served every brunch. You can't go wrong with the cinnamon roll and chili rellano breakfast burrito.

Ambience was good, beautiful sunset. Service was ok. The drinks were awful. Margaritas were sweet and syrupy like TGIF, so disappointed. Gin and tonic had flat tonic from a gun vs bottle that you would expect at $17 a pop. Food was tasteless all around...except for Gazpacho which was delish. Truffle risotto again tasteless and $44!!!! Brussel sprouts wet and soggy. Yuck! Would not recommend.More

The food was not the best as expected! Save time and money and visit other restaurants in Manhattan Beach.

Everything was good. Not great but solid. But the staff from the front desk to the waiter was excellent. So friendly. Views and seating were awesome. It’s a must do at least once.

The Adventure Buddies goes to the Strand House and enjoyed the black iced tea, French fries, pizza, salads, Parker house rolls and branzino fish! The view can’t be beat! Beat in town! We highly recommend even if the prices are a bit high.

Spent some good time looking for a place to have a lunch at. Made a reservation and confirmed the day prior that I would be there. The reservation was cancelled 1hr before I had it scheduled for via a text message. What a treatment

This is a great restaurant and bar. We have been coming here for years since it opened. Nothing better than Bloody Mary’s, good food and a view to die for.

The food is good, prices are high, patio dining is very well done. They did a great job at setting up seating and mask are used in the city. The meals were well presented and had good taste with some original concepts.

Today was my first time here, the restaurant have a great location over viewing Manhattan Beach, i tried the Sweet Corn shrimp soup it was yummy and full of flavour, and the Spanish grilled octopus it was crispy with crispy corn and slices of potatoes...with different sauces, for the main dish I ordered the grill fish with risotto it was great, for dessert I ordered coffee cake with espresso ice cream 👍More

The Strand House does it all so well! Out server Joe was consistently attentive and we wanted for nothing. The Branzino Fish was beyond amazing and the donuts at the end we the perfect way to end our evening out. Worth everything and lacking for...nothing!More
