The Strand House is a sophisticated yet comfortable family-owned restaurant conceived by a small group of South Bay families out of their love for great food, wine and friends. In 2011, The Strand House opened its doors, leading the culinary revolution of Manhattan Beach. With 180° sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, world travelers and locals alike may come for the view, but stay for Chef Greg Hozinsky’s and Executive Chef Austin Cobb’s award-winning Coastal California Cuisine.

Our menu highlights the bounty of produce available year round in Southern California. Each week, our chefs roam the farmers market sourcing directly from the best farmers and purveyors around. The Strand House is also home to a thoughtful and carefully crafted cocktail and wine program that is sure to please each of our guests.

The Strand House offers a five-star experience with the warmth and hospitality you would expect from a beach town, where each guest is treated like family.

Love the food, love the view, love the wide range of choices on the menu. BUT, the noise level is almost deafening. Under the best of circumstances, it's always pretty noisy, so you just accept it and don't try to have much of a conversation. But, on my birthday dinner there, in addition to the usual loud ambiance, a screaming toddler who took great joy in shrieking at the top of his lungs was a huge deterrent to our enjoyment of the evening. No, I don't fault the restaurant at all. I DO fault the oblivious parents and grandmother who made no effort to quiet the child or remove him from the restaurant until he could be calm. So yes, we do really love the food here, but be aware that it's usually noisy, and the presence of an out of control kid can seriously hamper your enjoyment of the evening.

I really appreciate that The Strand House doesn’t just rest on the fact that the views are amazing and actually have pretty great food. Also, the service was excellent. Not just good. GREAT. They anticipated our needs, didn’t rush us, frequently asked if there was anything else we needed (but not in a “go away and let me eat my food” way). There was a minor mishap with my side of fries. Not anything I was even concerned about and they handled it so well. Our server apologized, she brought fresh fries without my asking, and the manager apologized and covered part of our meal. Definitely returning. Definitely recommending.

I eat meat but couldn’t find a lot of options besides the appetizers.

outstanding views, great service. The food was delicious and tasty. Parking in the area is always challenging but worth it. Always make reservations ahead of time as it is a popular spot.

The food is usually very good to excellent at this restaurant but this time the halibut was a bit overcooked and the calamari was also dry. Yellowtail crudo was very well prepared.

Would definitely like to thank the staff at the Strand House for a fantastic evening. A window seat of the sun setting over the pier accompanied by delicious food, and drinks was a fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion. Evening was fantastic, and we felt well taken care of. Food was delicious as well, opting for soft shell crab, and perfectly cooked scallops, a well prepared pork chop, and a side of delicious mushrooms. The mains were paired perfectly with their accompaniment. Food was great, but what made the evening perfect was the staff, ambiance, and beautiful view.

The food was excellent. Very good variety and quality. Good wine list and selection of signature cocktails. Only real negative was our server who started out very pleasant seemed to sour and rush us out of the place, never even offering us dessert or coffee. I will try it again however bro g rushed out the door, even as members of our dining party (we were a party of six) left me feeling unhappy with the overall experience. Especially at this price point.

The point of make a reservation was to get a table outside. Didn't get one, and got seated close to two big table with a bunch of noise kids. And to close to another couple table. no privacy.
I mentioned in the reservation it was a special date, nobody asked me about it or did anything about it at the restaurant. I expected more about a place like that, since brunch was over $90.

Great food. Oysters were the best platter we’ve had among quicker and more casual evening restaurants.
Club down stares was loud but we were looking to go somewhere for after. Club downstairs is probably the least diver experience you’ll find in the area or where people will be decently dressed having fun. Older crowd though.

This was for a birthday lunch, which I noted on the reservation. Nothing special was done, other than providing a menu that Said “happy birthday” at the top. The waiter didn’t mention the birthday and wasn’t hospitable, he never smiled once and was not attentive. Poor customer service.
