Mahattan House always provides a good meal with the freshest ingredients made into interesting (and delish) dishes. Our server was outstanding too. She suggested a roasted vegetable platter, when we couldn't get a salad because the greens hadn't come that day (!). The platter was so good, as was our flattened chicken entree. The sunchokes that came with the chicken were amazing too. More

Seafood | Manhattan Beach / Hermosa Beach, Beach Cities

FWD is one of my favorite lunch spots in the city. The hamachi app, the fried chicken sandwich, the salmon tartare are all favorites. I had the key lime pie again and it was so good and so beautiful. Note that the tables are very close together, so not the place for a private conversation. Very highly recommended. More

Great food, but way too expensive. There are many other non-all you can eat Korean style BBQ restaurants for much less price with similar quality food and variety selection of side dishes.. If budget is not an issue, you should try this place. More

Century Tap Room is an American cuisine diner that offers three meals a day in a casual setting. The breakfast service includes a buffet, as well as a menu full of huevos rancheros, smoked salmon and seasonal fruit platters. Lunch service is dependent on business, so you may want to call ahead before stopping by Century Tap Room for your midday meal.

Dinner at Century Tap Room includes starters such as citrus glazed baby back ribs and spicy ahi tuna tostadas, followed by entrŽes that include sandwiches, pasta and more.

Discover Beach Cities

The L.A. beach cities offer a variety of food options that appeal to diners who place a priority on fresh and local cuisine. Chefs prepare food with fish that has been caught within hours from the Pacific Ocean. Global seafood fans can order innovative sushi rolls and ultra-fresh sashimi, and families can try grilled fish served with a salad. Other food options are also available in different neighborhoods, so kids can get a traditional sandwich and healthy eaters can enjoy a properly seasoned turkey burger. Hearty meals can be ordered as well during lunch or dinner. Comfort food fans can try the meatloaf prepared with bold, spicy seasonings and covered with a fiery sauce. The dessert options pair nicely with Beach Cities meals because they're made with fresh ingredients like berries and mint.
