The Kettle was a great surprise. Although it had good reviews, I find that I am not always impressed with places that others rate high. But, on my second visit to Manhattan Beach I decided to give it a try. The decor is attractive with...More

After spending the week in Redondo Beach...The Kettle was one of our favorite places to eat. We were welcomed and staff was fantastic, food was very good and it was a great location (just up the street from the MB Pier)
