Love this place, freshest fish and their cooks know exactly how to prepare fish! A big favorite is the Crab Louie substituted with Lobster and adding avocado! I'm here once a week and am never disappointed.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
