This is a very popular place, with tables inside and outside on a nice porch area. It could use more tables, as it is VERY popular. It has an amazing assortment of beers / ciders on tap...have never seen such a large array of taps before. You order at the bar and bring your drinks to your table, waiters will... More

We ordered 2. Cheesburger and fries.. cooked meduim. When we received them they were closer to rare and covered with bbq sauce ,The only favor to the burgers were the bbq flavor from the sauce. The fries were tasty but we asked for ketchup and the server said they used a special sause and did not have ketchup

Ok so it was about 5pm on a Monday evening - so we didn't expect much atmosphere but it literally had none. The tables are bare and the whole place feels slightly off kilter - can't quite put my finger on it - it was just somewhere we couldn't wait to get out of. The beer range is impressive but... More

Title says it all. Nice place, with some parking and outdoor seating, crowded and noisy. Good selection of beers. Their burgers are really good, but what I found excellent were deep fried soft-shell crabs. Outstanding.

So this area used to be mostly furniture stores and art galleries.The transformation has been quite noticeable. So hear we have a place that gives great ambiance inside and out! I prefer outside seating in the late evenings. I like that it's kind of tucked away off Venice blvd. Between the old Helms Bakery Building. My father who's 70 recalls... More

My only issue with this place is that they don't allow kids under 21. So we always do take out. No changes on the burger but that is cool. Just get the burger and fries and a beer. Heaven

We live walking distance from fathers office - and when I want a burger it's the only place I want to go! Their burger is delicious, you can't customize, so if you don't like everything they put on it, this burger might not be for you. I happen to love everything. It's just perfect. Go for medium rare (it's what... More

When in Culver City, there are many dining options. Father's Office brings their unique style to beer, wine, and terrific burgers flawlessly. In the Helms complex of high-end shops, adjacent to the best hot dog cart on the planet, and up the pedestrian walk from a very nice French restaurant, Father's Office is a nice choice for an easy dinner...

First off, it's technically a bar so you'll have to leave your kids at home. The food is excellent - I've had almost everything on the menu and it's all been great. Brilliant beer and wine selection, a very small cocktail menu (don't try and order a vodka soda here - it won't happen). You order at the bar, they... More

The burgers and garlic fries here are the best. The burgers are really flavorful and the fries were perfectly cooked with lots of garlicky flavor. The burgers have a rich meaty flavor to them and it is a nice size sandwich. The only thing that I did not like was that you have to order at the bar and then... More
