Ate outside. My server Abby was great. The roasted carrots, roasted Brussel sprouts and the MAC & Cheese were Money! OBTW. The sangria was killer! Right near the Santa Monica Pier Heaters if you get chilled by the ocean breeze.

Visited for brunch with my husband, the food was excellent though expensive but the great happy hour drink prices made up for the food price! The lobster sliders were yummy and so was the heirloom carrots which came with squid!

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
