I know that Polly's on The Pier has great reviews, however, honestly this place does not live up to that reputation. First, when you show up, it is crowded and short staffed. You are asked to serve your own coffee and write down your own name on the waiting list, while being forced to stand outside on the filthy pier... More

An amazing view. Great service. Fantastic food. Get there early and sit outside. Coffee was on point as were the banana pancakes and the eggs Benedict with crab meat! Yum! Went here with my boyfriend for his birthday breakfast. Great view! And nice lil birdies will come in and watch you eat. Haha ;)

Absolutely incredible. I love my "hole in the wall" restaurants. This one is a stand alone dynamite of a great place. I had the crab, shrimp and cheese omelette with Broccoli. So light and fluffy. And the view is nothing to sneeze at. Loved this place. I will be back!!!

My wife and I flew into San Diego on a Sunday morning and drove up the coast to tour some breweries prior to spending the evening at laguna beach. I looked at reviews and recommendations for a good place to get a reliably tasty meal and enjoy the water. I finally settled on Polly's and I have no regrets. The... More

Situated on the pier with people fishing along and plenty of bird watching. Hugely popular, you sign up to a waiting list, we had a 20 minute wait so not too bad. Get an outside table if it's not too cold, great for watching the birds, paddle boards, kayaks. Simple breakfast and lunch menu but done brilliantly. Our turkey melt... More

Small breakfast and lunch spot on the pier. Best food ever! The staff there is so friendly for such a small and busy place. I go there every time I'm in Redondo Beach.

Staying at hotel nearby and saw the high rating this modest place received so I wandered over to see if breakfast would be a worth it. It was! I was by myself, so it was hard to get a table outside (place was crowded, even on a Monday AM), so I went inside and got a table easily. Staff was... More
