The restaurant sits right on the 3rd Street Promenade, so it's location is good. If you are looking for burgers and such, then this will do. We stopped in for a light afternoon snack after spending the day in LA. We opted for the 8 Ball Appetizer. It was filling and was typical bar food. The service was slow to begin with but then our waitress was very attentive once our food was served.

On vacation in Santa Monica from Canada. Walked by this resto during search of another restaurant. But couldn't find our first choice of restaurant. So we walked back to this resto due to the great appearance and vibrant atmosphere. But unfortunately it went downhill from there. Most customers were at patio and in the dining area. Sat in the bar. Not a busy bar. Only a few people. But was not attended to for 15 minutes. Had to find my own menu. Then finally was attended to by a server with no acknowledgement of long wait. Server was rushing. Zombie service. Had the Turkey burger that was dry. Sticky table. Stinky chair. Big screen projector TV's and pool tables. But not enough to make up for the bad service. Never going back.

Had lunch here with my wife. Watched Barcelona Paris SG UEFA semifinal and the Master's par 3 tournament. We both had salads - chicken wing and the chinese chicken. Both were tasty and fresh. Handy location on 3rd Street.

Ate her twice on our raod trip, both times managed to get a seat outside. Very friendly staff, service was very good. Street entertainers to keep the teenage kids occupied, menu varied, large size portions. Biggest compliment is that the kids wanted to go back there.

Looks really exciting from the outside and contains lots of pool tables, big TV screens for live sports and tables serving descent looking menu. Food turns out to be very average, service is OK- our server was quite enthusiastic but disappeared with my credit card for quite a while. We had a creamy chicken pasta and fish and chips. The pasta was fine, but not over-tasty. The fish was battered but not really crispy, which was a shame. Generally OK, but nothing to get cited about.
