We had breakfast here twice and the food was great, portions huge (of course) and the menu was massive. Make sure your choice includes the Hash, it's really good. We also sat at the bar a couple of nights while others went shopping - it's located perfectly for this. The beer selection was extensive and the atmosphere warm and friendly.

Ate here twice whilst staying in SM; friendly service and a huge and varied menu with plenty of options for kids. Also a great selection of beers.

Grabbing a flight from London to Sydney via Los Angeles. We always stop for a few days of shopping and fun in Santa Monica. Barney's is always a stop on the culinary experience.

We always make it a point to get to Barney's when we're in California. The Santa Monica location was my first time at this location and we went two days in a row. The breakfast is amazing and it's a great, casual vibe for people watching and football. Just make sure you aren't in a rush -- service is slow.... More

Stopped by for a few beers and this was ideal. Great selection with knowledgeable staff who offered great service. Sport on numerous screens if you need it and it was an easy place to chat to some locals at the bar to help pass an evening for a solo traveller like myself

Dropped in for the Bama/Huskies semi final game @ 1200 hours. Lots of big tv, lots of seating. Great beer selection, well drinks but nothing beyond basics eg. no Galiano for a Harvey Wallbanger, no Clamato for a Bloody Ceasar. Salads and Nachos good, chili (all) is lousy, and how they can serve it without beans in them, given the... More

This place is great if you need something to eat whilst shopping. The food is good and fair price and the service is fantastic. Much better food than some other places around.

We went back twice (in 3 days) to Barney's Beanery on our recent visit to Santa Monica, because the food and service were very good, and the ambiance of being able to sit on Barney's patio and soak up the sights and sounds (very good street musicians) of the 3rd Street Promenade were a great combination.

Cool sports bar with a sense of detail for interior design. Great service and lots to choose from on the menu. Large portions.

A rare visit to somewhere without first checking it out on TA (as so hot and hungry) and we were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. Enjoyed a huge, well-stocked club sandwich with fries whilst watching some unusually tuneful buskers outside. A really relaxing way to spend lunch and also a great choice of draft beers. Just wished... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
