We stopped off in Manhattan Beach for dinner and this place was busy, central and the food from the street looked good.

Overall, we were happy with our experience. The menu is large and plentiful though prices vary from reasonable to kinda expensive depending on what you get. I had the roast beef dip, cheesed up (as per the menu recommendation) - it was great, and messy. A friend had a salad and another the fish.

Service was good and attentive.

No complaints - nothing really extraordinary but an overall decent meal.

The kettle has been in downtown Manhattan Beach for many years. It is a favorite of many many people. It does not validate parking but you can sit outside or in depending on the weather. There is also a Starbucks near by.

My teenaged son and I needed a place to grab a decent meal before we flew out of LA. Parking on the street difficult as it's literally a block from the beach. No waiting for a seat at the counter. Very busy restaurant but the service was very good, food came incredibly fast and was excellent. HUGE menu. I had BLAT with fruit. Son had pancakes with breakfast potatoes. For as fast as it was prepared, quality did not suffer.

It's close to the beach, within walking distance to beach. Food was ok. Not really impressive. Maybe breakfast is better
