“Not that great....We would skip it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

Its an overrated Dennys type place with a different name. Its always crowded due to the tourism and thats about what it is. A tourist trap by the pier that sometimes could be your only hope as a sober up moment as the bars close. ::tip:: go for the breakfast foods over the dinner items.

“First Breakfast in LA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

Great start to our trip. Lovely location just off Manhattan Beach. Staff where friendly, the place was clean and fresh and the food was great. Fresh coffee and a breakfast burrito with black beans, breakfast potatoes and a sprinkling of tobasco sauce really got my day off to a good start.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

The Kettle was my favorite restaurant on a trip to LA. The food was so fresh and good. I was happily surprised that I had enough on my plate to take leftovers back to the hotel. Our waitress was really nice.

“Cute Little Spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

We ventured out from our Resort for a little shopping and lunch, Manhattan Beach was recommended. Although we found the shopping very limited, and closed store fronts, we did find The Kettle. We sat on an outside porch and enjoyed the many people who were walking by. The service was prompt and the food good. I would say that this a locals place. We enjoyed it, not fantastic but good.
