This place has great views in the day and a real buz at night, very bohemian in its clientel at night with a brilliant vibe. The food is great value for money and plenty of it. My tip is try the "clam chouder and chips"...More

Great atmosphere, popular bar. We’d just arrive at Venice, sun was setting and the bar is located by the pier. Happy hour had just finished but still great value food.

A great place to stop by Venice beach to people watch and enjoy a drink. Service was good and food was good too. Great for a quick pit stop.

There is lot’s of mediocre places along the Venice boardwalk. At first glance, this is another one. But food is very fresh, great service and nice views from the second floor terrace. Enjoy!

I really want to like this place more than I do. The location is great and the view from the open upstairs is wonderful. It can get rowdy which is not a bad thing just a fact. The area has a lot of interesting people...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
