  • The bartender Ed is a real swell guy. He just poured me a free shot of my favorite booze cause he remembers me from 2 weeks ago!
  • I sat alone. Noone made fun of me. Works for me!!!
  • It could be better. It could be worse.
  • Need a morning pick me up, try a Bloody Maria, so delicious.
  • Food, eh... but great place to watch crazy ass people walk by on Venice Beach!
  • The pesto pizza with extra chicken is delish
  • Hello Venice Beach
  • Come early during the week and enjoy the music
  • Great place to eat, around 60usd for 3 with one appetizer.
  • Amazing fries and $5 805 drafts. Check out the hidden bookstore, and mind the drunks.
  • Great service, great food, great atmosphere! I wanted to include a picture of my burger but it tasted too good to leave on my plate long enough! Love this place!!!
  • Nicest staff ever:) get their garlic Parmesan fries! And a seat by the boardwalk.
  • Perfectly spiced bloody Mary's. And a great spot to ppl watch. Venice is full of freaky characters
  • Try the Kristens Wrap - Tuna salad wrap; very yummy
  • Always crowded. For you best bet during the daytime head to the bar and eat there. The burgers are pretty swell.
  • Tip the musicians, if you're outside. They're your entertainment!
  • Best bud on draft in the country! OMB!
  • Full bar in the back!! Amazing pizza!!
  • Go there and see Matt Dowd play the guitar while you eat. Get the breakfast special
  • Cocktails are small, taste great, but are STRONG. I was tipsy after one margarita and I'm not a small guy.
