The food wasn't tasty. It came uncooked and when we complained, they didn't want to change it and still wanted to charge us for it. The service was awful.. You could hear the workers gossip about the guests. Wouldn't come there again.

The Olds King's Head in Santa Monica is a good place for a drink and some food while you are in the area. It is easy to get to and the food and service are good, too.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
