We had a group of 7 which showed we on Sunday for lunch. They were very accommodating and arranged a table without an excessive wait. The food was very good and generous in portions. Staff was friendly and attentive to our table. The outside dining view was wonderful and everyone was pleased with their meal. We will be back.

We had lunch here in July 2015 when visiting in Manhattan Beach, and this year we tried the Oceanview for breakfast. Once again, the place was a winner; large menu, reasonable prices, good food. Once again, we ate outside on the small terrace. We'll be back next year, I feel sure.

I think I lost a few pounds waiting for the food ... service was very slow. The food was ok but not fantastic. But it did offer a patio view over looking the ocean.

Got there on a Friday morning, and there were only a couple of tables that had patrons at them. We ordered, and it took forever to get food. When the food arrived, it was ok - not great. The usual thing in Manhattan Beach is - if you go to a restaurant that is wide open, when the place next... More

Food is exceptional at an excellent price. Hubby had the fresh crab eggs bene, and honestly this is the most delicious dish. The crab is mouth wateringly fresh with layered housemade pesto. Every bite is an exquisite delicious explosion. I ordered the big breakfast, and was so pleased with everything. So fresh and yummy. The owners make you feel like... More

Oceanview is right next door to uncle Bills and a few steps closer to the ocean. The surprising thing is that with only 8 tables, all outside, it is rarely full while Uncle Bill's is usually overflowing. There are lots of great choices here. I love their salads and their veggie omelette is to die for. Plus they make great... More

Really good selection of omelettes. Great place to go if you want to avoid wait at Uncle Bill's next door.
