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

When you stroll the shopping area in Santa Monica you are attracted to this place,you just want to seat out and watch the movement of the promenade. We had the chance to do it. The food is good and you will enjoy your beer while eating a nice fish and chips. We had fun,service was perfect and dessert is nothing... More

It was our first long haul 35 hour flight overseas trip! We left Chilliwack from Canada on 30th September to catch our 8am flight from Vancouver to LAX. During our long 13 hour stop over at LAX, enroute from Vancouver to Melbourne (arrived Melbourne 9.30am 3rd December). We like to know a bit of USA. Santa Monica was chosen as... More

It was very busy and the bartender was really doing his best, a girl behind the bar was doing more paperwork in a quite inefficient way instead of servicing clients, she just ignored everybody. The atmosphere was good, the beer too, food was average.

We had a couple of late breakys here. Beautiful sitting outside in the sun watching the mall traffic walk by. Food was plentiful, fresh, well priced and promptly served. Staff were good (Thursday morning, blonde) and outstandingly fantastic (Wednesday morning brunette). A great start to your day. Inside there's a (sports) bar that looks very cool with plenty of TVs... More

Seems Santa Monica does not wake up till 11:00. We went on search of breakfast at around 09:00 and struggled. we stumbled on Barney's Beanery and had a lovely breakfast. Staff were attentive and welcoming. The hubcap and number plate collection was impressive even some from the good old UK. 😀

I was a bit reluctant to go here as I wasn't up for the Sports bar experience, but we were lucky enough to get a booth outside and it was very pleasant. Our service was excellent. The food was good as well. Lots of choices though. I would go again.

My Husband and I were looking for some low key food with outside seating. We stumbled upon Barney's and were happy we did. Food was very good; lots of options and various portion sizes! We had a hard time finding just plain "bar" food but this place delivers. Their Outside seating area looks on to the promenade and has heaters.... More

An old school sports bar on the busy Promenade. Lots of TV's most of which are older and small with two large screens by the bar, but the sight line is separated from the tables. The service was fairly good, and you expect slower service during the games. The downside was the food. The nachos were very average and ordering... More

Went here for Dinner and Lunch. The food was standard US fare with a good selection of both wine and beers. we also had a cocktail which was good, Visited when the Dodgers were playing, awesome atmosphere. We ate there three times so that should say enough.

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.
