Great find on Santa Monica Blvd just a few miles from the beach and 405, hotels across the street, local favorite hangout, the sports bar is actually several different dining rooms, bars and gathering places in adjoining rooms to hang out with friends or family, made it much more friendly feeling, tons of good energy on big screens and off....

Great fun at the Buffalo Bills pregame celebration! Good pub food, cold drinks, super friendly staff, and a great group of fans for both teams. Special thanks to the person who turned in my wallet that was left on our table and to the honest employees that kept it safe for me until I was able to retrieve it the... More

Went to this place on the recommendation of the staff across the road at Days Inn. Ordered a burger which cost $15 plus fries that cost $5. The burger wasn't cooked and had no flavour. The chips were old and not hot. I ordered a pint of Guiness which was served over 1 inch below the rim of the glass.... More

I could've overlooked the atmosphere, and filthy surroundings had the food and service been at least mediocre. Upon walking into the place...one wouldn't expect much more. Once our waitress (Lauren) finally did arrive, she was obviously not a happy girl...that too, I could've tolerated had she been even somewhat attentive. She was much more concerned about flirting with the couple... More

Service good, food good. The soccer match was on and all eyes glued to the TVs. That was ok, but the volume was so loud and we were the only ones sitting at a table. I did like the place and will be back.

We live a few blocks from here. Really good pub food and a nice beer selection. We aren't sports bar people and it's still a fun place to get lunch. The bartenders are very knowledgeable about their beer selection. I just told him the style of beer I liked and he picked me a great one. Even came back to... More

Food was expensive and totally mediocre. Any average citizen could lay waste to their food. Waitress ignored us for stretches at a time and was more concerned about chilling out and chatting. I don't know how this place has any good reviews, I'm amazed they are even still open. What a joke.

The ambiance of American bar and dinner place, full around with TV screens, a complete menu card, where you can taste traditional american dishes, from fish and chips to steaks, pleasant team and assistance. If passing by again, surely we will come back

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
