We called in for a couple of beers and it was just about ok, bar staff not overly interested... beer in plastic cups cheapens the experience. There's better bars in the area.

The fish and chips here were good. Tartar sauce was tasty and for the $3 price tag I think they could give one refill of Coke. With that said, I'd still go back. Maybe try the wings next time.

Went here after a day of surfing! Very casual place... went in swim suits and coverups. Sat outside and had super yummy fish tacos. Excellent vibe here! Lots of good people watching.

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
