The service was terrible and the food was like I made it at home. I paid $27 for my steak and it is sold ala cart. It's extra for sides. At that price there should be sides. The location is great and parking is easy.

Being a Coloradoan , I love going somewhere for fresh seafood. Our meal was delightful. Great skewered favorites, perfectly grilled asparagus. Our waiter was wonderful and kept us apprised of the baseball scores.

I liked it so much I brought back another group of friends just this past weekend. Best part---you don't have to fight traffic to get her... More

This restaurant has a pretty good and decently priced seafood based happy hour and I love their lobster nights. Usually Monday and Tuesday they have 2lb lobster dinner for around $38. I have food it difficult to find steamed lobster in LA so this is my go to when I need an East Coast fix.

Brick factory building houses a great little restaurant only a couple blocks from the beach. Right in the middle of a busy part of Santa Monica is this gem of an eatery. Lobster was wonderful, very flavorful, as was the shrimp on a skewer. The veggies were not overcooked like you get so many other places. The service was first-rate.... More

Excellent Happy Hour. I always order the bowl of mussels, the poke bowl, kale salad, sliders, shrimp...and so many more choices. Wine $5, beer $4, apps all reasonable and filling. I recommend many to go there and all enjoy it. Sit in the garden patio!

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
