Really nice restaurant with quality and really fresh fish. The cool thing is that the kitchen is visible to the customers and that is a sign of quality. Recommendable.

Can't beat Enterprise for a tasty lunch or dinner IF you're in the mood for seafood. The restaurant is large but seating can be a problem on the weekends. Best to make a reservation.

There's a video on YouTube claiming that it seems to be ok by management there to allow their customers to be called f**king fa**ot without the utterer of such language being told to leave. The offender claimed to be a lawyer & a friend of the owner allegedly. The Manager said he was "probably a Trump voter" (allegedly) & did nothing. Is this true?

I have no idea, but the food is middling to bland, very boring, the service is not good. I will never go back there anyway! (and if what you say is true, that is despicable!)
What are your lunch hours? Is lunch just offered Monday through Friday?

I live in Florida and not that familiar with you request. Google them they have a website with all that information.
I would like to know what dishes are offered on the $12 lunch menu. I can't find that anywhere.

Just a few blocks from the waterfront, our restaurant in Santa Barbara operates in a century-old brick building originally home to an industrial linen service for seaside hotels. While the Douglas fir floors, soaring ceilings, and glassed cupola have always been features of this historic structure, the sweeping arches facing State Street were added after much of the building crumbled during the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake. Built in 1917, the historic building now home to our Santa Monica restaurant was once a transfer station for the narrow-gauge Red Car line, Los Angeles' first mass transit system. It was later the repair house for the world-famous Pacific Ocean Park, home to the oldest wooden roller coaster west of the Mississippi. These days, we're still a stone's throw from Venice Beach, heart of where L.A. goes to play -- and eat.
