This restaurant is truly wonderful and I've been visiting it since the 90s in its previous incarnation as Sunsets. The Strand House is a high quality gorgeous restaurant. The ocean view is the best in LA other than Malibu. Views stretch from Malibu to Palos...More

Can't beat having breakfast watch the pier in Manhattan Beach. Service was great. Enjoyed the apple chicken omelette with potatoes and sour dough cooked to perfection. The Saturday Brunch menu had a bit of everything, including pizza and lobster rolls. Definitely go back again.

The restaurant is located right across the ocean and the pier in Manhattan Beach. With floor to ceiling windows, it is a great place to enjoy the sunset. I made a reservation for 6:30 pm and asked for a table by the window but even...More

We ate here for my birthday! The food was wonderful and the service was great! This is one of the only restaurants that are right on the water. It has a very nice atmosphere, with white table clothes, etc. I would make a reservation.

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.

Down at the beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean,The Strand House rises elegantly and iconically above the breakers. Like in an oceanfront home, friends become family and strangers become friends.
