    DINING OUTSIDE IS MUCH QUIETER AND YOU CAN EASILY ENJOY A CONVERSATION AT YOUR TABLE. THE HEIRLOOM TOMATO AND ROASTED PEACH SALAD WAS ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. HOPE YOU KEEP IT ON THE MENU WHENEVER POSSIBLE. WE ALL ENJOYED THE STRAWBERRY CREAM PUFFS. MY BEST EVER DINING EXPERIENCE AT THE POST.

    Eddie Was a great server. Friendly and efficient. He did a nice job recommending wines. And when we asked which he preferred between the Biscuits and the Pretzel he said the Naan! So we ordered it and it was outstanding. The tomato /pear salad was excellent as were the string beans. Lively crowd and nice atmosphere.

    The remodel has made the place a little classier and more spacious, though it is still crowded and energetic. Food is terrific and they have good cocktails and decent selection of wines by the glass.

    The seared halibut was over cooked. The dessert (peach cobbler) took 20min to come and we had to cancel it. Other than that, the biscuits are amazing and food was good. Will come back during the week. I think the weekend is too busy and service is better during the week.

    We always wanted to visit MB Post, based on all the great reviews, and it exceeded our expectations! The food was delicious. The cocktails were well made and perfectly balanced. And the service was exemplary! From the hostess, to our server, to (who I assume was) the GM coming over and ensuring we were having a wonderful time, everyone was very friendly and attentive. We were there on a busy Saturday afternoon and the vibe was great. Beachgoers sitting at the bar, families in the side room, couples on the high tops. Great energy! The outside patio looked very chill. Will definitely be visiting again soon and bringing friends with us!

    Cocktails were awesome. The salad we had was swimming in dressing which was very vinegary. The green beans had way too much sauce which was also very salty. The hamachi appetizer was wonderful.

    I’ve been to the Manhattan Beach Post a few times and I come back because the food is delicious, shareable, and inventive. We split the biscuit appetizer, steak and asparagus, as well as the gnocchi. All wee cooked to perfection. I made reservations 10 days prior.

    Prepare for a very loud evening. Service was slow, but I think they must have been understaffed. The biscuits are very large, filling, and yummy; 1 is good for 2 people! The green beans were excellent.

    When we changed our reservation we didn’t reiterate outside, so it wasn’t available. A couple of people in the party are very COVID-concerned. Jason was extremely accommodating and made it all work out in as comfortable a way as possible. The food and service were excellent, as always.

    As always love this place. The only complaint is the stressful super loud music indoors. It’s nice to be able to converse over a meal and the client ambient noise is cheerful enough but not with loud pounding in relaxing music. Try some chill house music.

    Had a long layover at LAX and decided to spend the day at MB and lunch with MB POST. So glad we did. Our waiter, Max, was so welcoming and gave us great recs. The burger is maybe the best I’ve eaten. And the cheddar bacon biscuits are not to be missed! Quintessential Manhattan Beach Day!

    I live in the area and now regret not always coming here! Food/cocktails/service is always great, and love the variety, as sometimes the restaurants around are specifically a seafood/steak/Italian/Mexican type of cuisine, etc. and I always find something I enjoy here. Can be casual or dressed up environment, highly recommend

    We sat outdoors and it was great to bring our frenchie puppy!! The wait staff was super informative and the menu has many new fresh summer options like the delicious corn fritter. The biscuits are worth the calories!! Mmmm! Skirt steak and fried chicken and the green beans…all around great sharing menu for party of four and we enjoyed reds and white wine!

    Maybe because I was alone, not being taken care of properly from arrival till the bill. Twenty five minutes waiting for the table while i had a booking. Not given the table i booked (i booked high table). Very poor service. Food was ok but much too salty.

    Really great news that MBPOST is now open everyday!! Sunday dinner was jamming. My daughter and I really enjoyed a fantastic meal expertly served by Samantha and executed by their back of the house. Can’t go wrong ordering the Two Coast Hefeweizen brewed in nearby Gardena. Of course their famous Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits are a must have starter. Heirloom Tomato/Peach Salad and Caledonian Head On Prawns are superb appetizers and we also shared the Thai Curry Steamed Black Mussels and the Fried Nashville Hot Yardbird. You like spicy to go with the Hef, these two entrees are perfect for your feast! The soft cream fruit deliciously closed out our evening,……nice job MBPOST!!
