Highly recommend coming for the mahi mahi fish tacos. Great quality fresh fish. Not the cheapest at $27 but worth the experience. Turns into a night club after 11PM so may not be for everyone.

Great spot to relax, have a couple of drinks and eat lunch. Everyone loved their lunch. The calamari was delicious! The choice of drinks was great! The staff was very accommodating with our larger group.

We went here because our Uber driver recommended it as a local spot with great fish tacos. It didn't disappoint! The fish tacos are great. The atmosphere is great. The mimosas are HUGE! Loved it. Would recommend and would return.

This place is semi-famous as it was used as a BAckdrop in the movie "I Love You, Man". We had some great wine and a simple/delicious tuna appetizer. The ambience is laid back, and there's a lovely indoor/outdoor patio that's perfect on a sunny day....More

They only had a very poor buffet. Very small choice and mediocre quality at a relatively high cost. Very unhappy having been here before and thought highly of their menu foods.

Slightly tucked down a connecting street. Very popular with locals & LA trendies. Good menu (especially if you like cocktails). Good priced menu too. Good service and excellent food. Will return.

I love it. Second time in town, second time in Jame's Beach. Good menu and awesome beach atmosphere. If you're vegetarian, there's a delicious falafel burguer. Try it ;)

Stopped while in Venice on a 3 night trip. Had burger and fries. Was alright. Nice atmosphere and nice to get away from Spring Breakers on Ocean Front Walk

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
