Hank’s offers a full menu of American classics for Lunch and Dinner, next to the Bay Theater at Palisades Village. 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.

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!

First time. We had requested outdoor seating but the weather was drizzly so we requested indoors instead and they accommodated us beautifully. Delicious Beyond Meat burgers. Very happy with the venue. Will 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.

There is no reason an order of fries should cost $8, the same as a pint of beer, or should have to be a side order with a burger. The prices for burgers are $22 and $29. No one goes to Palisades Village and expects it to be cheap, but no one wants to be taken advantage of either. I got the cheaper burger, fries and a beer, and with tax my total was $42, and with a generous tip $50.

The food used to be pretty good, but the last few times we’ve had dinner at Hank’s, the food has been very mediocre at best. The time has come to bring it back up.

This is the second time In two weeks that you’ve been out of lobster.. additionally the pot stickers need way More actual filling.. mostly dough. It would be nice to bring back the shrimp cocktail and another seafood appetizer.. the selection of appetizers is very small and not exactly healthy. Thank you.,

Great situation for a Sunday brunch
service was sorely lacking- food arrived at different times and had to be repeatedly requested !

Food looked nothing like the pictures on their website so except for the avocado toast it was an expensive nothing!

Disappointing and will not be returning

Our waitress was great.....didn't get her name but she went to LMU and is also a realtor. See, we did to speak to her but just didn't get her name.
She had been our waitress previously and was great then as well.

We'd selected Outdoor Seating via the OpenTable reservation site but when we arrived (on-time) they had us arranged for an indoor seat. The person in front of us was dealing with the exact same issue. We had to wait 15 additional minutes, which is no big deal, but it was an inconvenience and the hostess didn't show an ounce of empathy for us or the other family. Our waitress was hard to find on the couple of occasions that we needed her, most specifically when we were ready to pay and needed to leave. They may have been understaffed. Food was very good, but expensive for the service we received.

Food was great. However, I was served a $22 glass of wine that appeared to be about 3 oz. I honestly thought I might be on impractical jokers --when a burger costs so much you think you could at least get a decent glass of wine.

We go to Hanks frequently and love the food. Nice to dine outdoors! I had the tomato bisque and found it too oily and bitter. The grilled cheeses was excellent though. Highly recommend the apply pie for dessert..... best we’ve ever had! Husband had the filet and cooked to perfection! Shared a wedge salad and also excellent!

Hank's is located in Palisades Village in a great location.
There is ample seating outside and at the proper distance.

The food here is very good. Our server recommended the
Ruben sandwich which was as good as he claimed.
He was attentive and checked back often.
The food is a little pricey but worth it.

It was a lovely day, so we lingered and enjoyed the afternoon.

I will return again.

The food was good. The ambiance was great, and the outdoor dining setup is very nice. We were served appetizers before our entree. The waitress noticed, but nothing was done about it. We didn’t push it, but we weren’t asked if we wanted it fixed either. Overall we had a nice time and service was otherwise good.

It was great! The only downside was that the menu was completely different as it was changed to brunch only overnight and we had no knowledge of it, but the food was still good and Daniel was a great server.
