This is a funky beach shack setting, ideal for both friends and families. Easy to get to, on PCH near Topanga Canyon Road. This is a good fish market as well, and you can judge by their prices, they stock only quality fish. That said,...More

Atmosphere inside and out! Great food. Clean, well maintained. Ordering can be a little tricky and the staff needs to remember a lot of their guest have never been there and do not know the process of navigating through.
