This is my favorite restaurant in Santa Monica. It's a very loud, lively and busy place... So don't go and be in a rush, Because you won't be happy. Their menu has a large variety of choices. The food is delicious! The last thing I ordered was the Margherita Pizza. I couldn't believe how yummy it was, so I had... More

This is a great place to hang out, have a couple of beers and play some games. There's a good selection of beer and it serves the kind of food that you want to have with beer, the kind that makes you feel guilty and cannot be regarded as healthy in any way! We had teriyaki chicken wings and pizza... More

Was a great place for a casual dinner with the family. We ate on the deck in a booth with heaters above and enjoyed the pizza and good craft beer selections. Prices are reasonable and the decor is eclectic fun.

Extensive menu printed like a small broadsheet with the history of the place on the back page. Established 1920, not many eateries of that vintage around. Located in 3rd street promenade so lots going on to watch when seated outside. Indoor... More

The hostess and the waiter were super cool with us, the mood of the place is very cheerful without being croudy or loud. Our food and beverages were perfectly served (I personally recommend the chicken BBQ Sandwich) with... More

If you are walking down 3rd street boulevard, Santa Monica s shopping street, this is a safe place to crash if you are Ok with reasonable quality pub food. Ambience is good, service is friendly.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
