This restaurant is always a part of our trip to So Cal. We love it. It feels like home each time we go back. I don't know how many times I have uttered the phrase "2 on the rail please."

Don't expect fancy - the vibe is beachfront casual. We ate a bit (oyster shooters and shrimp cocktail were good but unremarkable) and enjoyed bloody marys and screwdrivers with nice & heavy liquor pours. The views were gorgeous and I loved the yacht rock soundtrack!
