My friend and I dropped in for oysters and bubbles on a Sunday afternoon. The restaurant was very busy and it's obviously got a touristy reputation, but we were pleased to find that this did not interfere with the quality of service. I can't speak...More

Friendly staff, food was fresh (and delicious), and came out very fast - even with a full restaurant. They even have a kids' menu! Good selection of different east and west coast oysters. Lobster tacos are yum!!

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
