Baseball Redux is tenderly delicious, excellent! Try it, you will come back for more. Pacific Dining Car in Santa Monica has very friendly staffs and clean place to have an evening to remember to eat dinner or lunch.

If you enjoy quality food served with the respect and attentiveness of the entire restaurant staff, you'll enjoy your meal coming here. A total Old School atmosphere which happens to be open 24 hours as a plus.

Los Angeles has so very few great truly legendary landmarks that still exist, especially when it comes to restaurants. Pacific Dining Car was such a place. It started literally in a converted train dining car back in 1927, and then sort of grew outward with...More

This restaurant is pricey and why we only go on special occasions. I usually get the Ribeye smothered in mushrooms which is about $75 then the awesome bake potato is a $15 side. The Mac & Cheese is an incredible side dish as... More
