Stopped by from Appetizers and drinks on a walk along the bike path. Glad we stopped as the view from the roof top bar was great.

We stopped in with another couple to have some cocktails. Fantastic views of the sunset from the upper level.

We went there for a few drinks and munchies with a fantastic view of the beach. Happy hour prices were very good. Unfortunately, the seats were so uncomfortable, we left after one drink. I could see the inside seating was different so maybe good in there.

Arrived to Hermosa at 11:00 pm and assumed everything would be closed. Hennessy Tavern had late night dining with music in a Thursday night.

After watching the sunset over the Hermosa Pier we wandered over to Hennessey's for dinner. We shared the Shepards pie and a steak sandwich. Both dishes were very good.

Stopped in late. It was still open but empty so we got great service. Hubby ordered a burger and he loved it. I ordered Irish Nachos. Made with potatoes which were hot but tasked old. Like reheated. But menu for breakfast looked interesting and will be back to try that.

The view and location is fantastic and definitely good for going for a few drinks and appies at Happy Hour but otherwise the food is not so good.
