Location is beautiful, particularly just before sunset; classic California with a very pleasant wait staff and delicious meal with a variety of offerings for every palate. The Hand-cut Frites and Beet salad were a great supplement to a shared meal .

Manhattan Beach is always a "must visit" when in LA. Great small city, great vibe, great views of the Pacific Ocean and many great restaurants and shops. Lunch today at The Strand House was exquisite. Watching surfers, fishermen and beach goers while having lunch was a unique and enjoyable time. The service is always attentive. The lunch menu is filled... More

Great service, good view of the pier and beach, and lovely staff. good range of food choices. Eggs benedict as they should be, though base a little small. Pancakes were good too. Fresh oj. A little exxy due to the lousy exchange rate on the $AUD but enjoyed the food and the view. Fastest free wifi I've ever had !... More

Local recommendation and well worth it. Seated with a great view of the pier and beach and sea. Beautiful fish brilliantly presented and cooked to perfection. Thanks hope to return next time in the USA.

Amazing view, amazing food. The entrance is similar to that of a hotel lobby, very elegant. You go upstairs and arrive at an amazing panoramic view of the beach.

I had a great date night at the Strand House Sunday night. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and skilled at describing the menu items and specials. We had an excellent pear salad, the lamb rack and cod in Miso with pork belly cubes. All dishes were excellent. The suggested wine selections were also excellent. We will be back.

We got there for sunset and ate by the most amazing view. Ask for the second floor to get that view. The pizza was so delicious, we had the artichoke/leek. Wow. Great wine too.

A friend brought me here for one of my first nights in town. If you come early you can get a seat by the window for sunset. The food was very good, especially the pizza! Will return when I have friends in town!

Had lunch at the Strand House with my wife on our Anniversary trip and enjoyed everything: the beautiful view, the ambiance of the restaurant, the great food and the knowledgeable and friendly staff. Will definitely recommend
