Diners can choose from a wide array of dishes from grilled seafood, steaks and ribs, to our classic Double Diamond Burgers, sandwiches and soups, all complemented by craft cocktails and an extensive beer and wine list.

Seating is available at the counter, which gives diners a front row seat to our open kitchen and bar, in our romantic dining room, or on our bustling, pet friendly patio. We are happy to serve and accommodate our vegetarian, gluten free and other dietary restricted customers.

Pacific Palisades is a small beach community, known for spectacular ocean views, hiking and biking trails, near Malibu, Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Pier. The neighborhood is also home to the stunning Getty Villa Museum, which features Roman-inspired architecture and gardens.

The food is so YUCK. Was munching on the garlic fries for dinner as the chicken burger and spinach were flavorless and pretty gross. Even returned the cocktail as it tasted not so good…all in all, stuck it out for my kids but even their hamburgers looked substandard. How much longer will they last?

Arrived early and then waited for an additional 15 minutes to be seated for our reservation. Was told we’d get a text and we never did. Then waited for over an hour for our food. Luckily we got an appetizer - by the time the food came the kids were starving. We were discouraged from getting dessert because the kitchen was backed up meanwhile the people next to us got their food in ten minutes. They do not treat everyone equally and we’ll never go back. The servers themselves were good - management of the place is total BS. Don’t bother.

Since when was a burger, shared fries and 1 beer each come to $50 per person with tip? Food was good but the value for that price - not acceptable. We made reservations three weeks in advance for a table of 5. Ended up with a 4-top with a chair added. I was seated on the corner while everyone else had a side. Really uncomfortable. As an aside, there was a nail sticking out of the center of the rattan chair which could catch on clothing. Fortunately I was in jeans.

So disappointed though about no decaffeinated coffee? It just tells me they are not interested in providing service that their patrons would like. The onion rings are also nothing like the old Hanks which were fabulous. Also no longer offering a Jr Burger? Why not again lack of consideration for what patrons want. Rarely go there anymore and it was at least a weekly stop in the past.

Always good draft beers and cocktails-recommend the Dry Martini.
My wife and I pair with the Ruben and Wedge salad.

The food here is usually quite good but on this occasion it was really not. The Mac in the Mac and cheese was way-way overcooked watery and flavorless, save for the bacon. The chicken sandwich, which we’ve loved in the past ( even ordered as take-out) was rubbery?!! Very few customers this visit but getting the check took 15 minutes. Also 20% tip automatically added to a bill for 4 guests?!! I add 20% gratuity always, but I’d like to select it ( not have it thrust upon me). What’s going on Hank’s?!! I may not come back for a spell…

As seniors, we were disappointed that you did not have a paper menu to select from. Only one of the three of us had a cell phone. We had to call upon the waiter to explain the menu. Please consider a paper menu in the near future. The other restaurants in the Village provide paper menus.

Sushi is cheaper than eating at Hanks. 3 Salads+1 Sandwich+ 4 Vodkas =$230. And really, charging for large ice cubes in our drinks. Happy to pay rent for the table, chair, napkin, plate, utensils, etc..

Guess next time I'll bring my own ice cubes... NOT

The food was overpriced.

The service was ok, all the service personnel were not happy…definitely will not be back.

The great experience of dining out comes from the server.

And if they aren’t happy, then the experience is not a good one.

First time checking out Hank's, met 2 friends for lunch. We shared the Mac & Cheese (with truffle), Korean Cauliflower, Reuben, and 6 oz Steak Frites. Everything was delish! The steak could not have been better - perfectly cooked and wonderful glaze. Charlie working the bar made a mean Bloody Mary & Aperol Spritz, and our server was a gem (didn't get his name). We sat outside, the weather was amazing. Wonderful visit, all around. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

The food was OK and highly priced. $105 for a very small grilled veggie wrap, two drinks, and a waygu Burger. The service was OK and I suppose what you are really paying for is sitting outside in the Palisades. But that price for mediocre food is absurd. I will never go there again.

Hank's was great as usual. There was live music outside across the street and
it was fun to watch people dancing. We had the chicken caesar wrap and
Palisade spritzes. There is a wonderful relaxed feeling to this place. I love
eating outside here. The service was perfect.

It is about time to update the menu at Hanks. Other than burgers and sandwiches, there are only 4 entrees and one of those is Macaroni. As for appetizers, the dumplings are completely pedestrian in quality. The fried pickles were a novelty for a couple of months, but come on....it is time for something tasty with a bit of quality. Don't get me wrong, we do like the place, but the menu is tired and uninspired to say the least. On the flip side of the coin, the ambiance is very nice and the service very pleasant.

It was a little cooler than we expected to be outside. Service was good but we were looking forward to the lobster Mac & cheese but you didn't have any lobster. Also the spicy Bloody Mary was way too spicy, too much Tabasco. could not drink it.
