Great setting, good food, friendly prompt service. Does not have a harbor view but the brick interior, high rafter ceilings and open kitchen are attractive and eye catching. Suitable for families with small children. Prices moderate, portions adequate.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

Lobster dinners are always at "Market" price, meaning it varies from day to day and season to season. Did not order lobster, so could not give a price the day I was there.
