You can't find a more California restaurant. Great outdoor seating, a diverse drink list and a menu item for everyone in your group. The food is all OK and the drinks are all OK and the service is not even OK, but it's still worth...More

These are my favorite fish tacos- the mahi is always fresh. The tortillas are great. The sushi is very fresh, the beer selection is good and the service is always friendly. Used the parking garage next door and it was easy in and easy out.

Close to the beach and the Venice canals, the fish tacos were excellent and the little scones with jam were delicious. Reasonably priced.

This place has a cool decor just steps off the beach. The fish tacos were awesome. We only had beers and tacos but other stuff looked good too.

We ate at the restaurant at the airport so the menu was a limited version of what you'd find at the main restaurant. We're big fish taco fans and were looking forward to trying the Beach's "famous" version. They were good and big but not...More

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
