We stopped in for lunch when shopping next door. Were given a menu and told it was open seating and to order at the bar. When we ordered the burger my wife wanted no bacon jam on hers and was told that was not possible it had to have the jam. She ordered a cocktail and wanted it on the... More

I've always wanted to eat at Father's Office but have never had the chance until a recent trip to LA. I had always imagined it as a burger place because that's what everyone talks about so I was surprised so see so many other items on the menu. The burger was good and so was everything else we tried. I... More

I don't even begin to know where to start. The servers here are beyond rude. And the policies to not accommodate for food allergies (ie not being able to eat blue cheese) when the only burger you serve has blue cheese is kind of RIDICULOUS. But there were no shortage of people here. So the food must be more important... More

Finally made it here after several trips to LA where their 5pm opening time tripped me up. I got the burger and fries and was not disappointed. Asked for it cooked medium and that's exactly what I got. Shoestring French fries with a nice mayo sauce. Good beer selection too. Not kid friendly. Free parking in the shopping center is... More

We did not enjoy this resturant, the staff was rude, we asked for ketchup- they said nope- don't have it. We ordered our drinks and ordered for the table- so we had to make trips to carry our drinks to the table- we asked for a tray to carry them, but they didn't have one. Our food took forever, came...

This is a very popular place, with tables inside and outside on a nice porch area. It could use more tables, as it is VERY popular. It has an amazing assortment of beers / ciders on tap...have never seen such a large array of taps before. You order at the bar and bring your drinks to your table, waiters will... More

We ordered 2. Cheesburger and fries.. cooked meduim. When we received them they were closer to rare and covered with bbq sauce ,The only favor to the burgers were the bbq flavor from the sauce. The fries were tasty but we asked for ketchup and the server said they used a special sause and did not have ketchup

Ok so it was about 5pm on a Monday evening - so we didn't expect much atmosphere but it literally had none. The tables are bare and the whole place feels slightly off kilter - can't quite put my finger on it - it was just somewhere we couldn't wait to get out of. The beer range is impressive but... More

Title says it all. Nice place, with some parking and outdoor seating, crowded and noisy. Good selection of beers. Their burgers are really good, but what I found excellent were deep fried soft-shell crabs. Outstanding.

So this area used to be mostly furniture stores and art galleries.The transformation has been quite noticeable. So hear we have a place that gives great ambiance inside and out! I prefer outside seating in the late evenings. I like that it's kind of tucked away off Venice blvd. Between the old Helms Bakery Building. My father who's 70 recalls... More
