Great little dive bar that has a teriffic view. Right next to the ocean it also has a very good menu. Pool is always a great time there and the atmoshere is cool.

Well, I was a bartender then in the early 1980's. I first arrived in their around 1976 and I don't think I left for four years. At that time they had .50 pitchers on Wednesday and cups at .10 each until a keg blew.

Despite being a "tourist" bar you would be surprised to find out how many locals go in there. Does it smell bad? Yeah, if you don't like the smell of beer. One reviewer wrote that his lady was looked over from up and down. Yes, that's true if your hot they will let you know it. But they would never disrespect you, unless you're being a total ass.

Best bar in Hermosa Beach to this date. Nothing better then to go there, grab a cold one and just watch the sunset. Great for people watching. It's old reputation of being a rough and tumble bar should no longer be associated with it, it's well managed and trouble is avoided.

I highly recommend it. Unless you're some type of snob who doesn't like the smell of beer and walks around thinking you're better then everyone else. This is a real person's bar.

Perfect location right on the strand. It's been around forever (and you can definitely tell) but it has a great staff and cheap drinks.

The Poop Deck is located right on the beach. Not the newest bar in the area but a great place to watch people. The service is friendly and they have some good happy hour specials.

One step into this bar, and you?ll know why it got its name; it?s absolutely disgusting. Because of its iconic reputation, my girlfriends and I went to check out this place one afternoon and immediately upon entering were made to feel extremely uncomfortable, not to mention out of place. We were very obviously ogled by what seemed to be some questionable regulars perched at the bar, then the bartender was rude (because we didn?t have cash), and the bathroom was unbearable. I?ve been to enough dive bars to know that this place is nothing more than a dump.

Pros: right on beach

Cons: a dump, bad service, cash only

The poop deck has been around forever. it's a beer bar right on the strand in Hermosa. They have an awesome aquarium there. They have some really cheap happy hour specials. It smells really bad though.

This has to be the ultimate beach dive bar. They have some of the best real estate in HB and any summer weekend or holiday the place is packed. It has an outdoor patio where you can typically find smokers or drunk groups playing a game of boat races. Nothing glamorous about this spot, but there is definitely some fun to be had there on occasion.

The P**p Deck used to have $.25 pitchers at 8:00 every Thursday. Needless to say I lost my shoes one Thursday in 1984. Let me know if you've seen my shoes.

Pros: Amazing view

Cons: crowded

Not only did the bouncer use a very deragatory slur toward my group, the bartender was too busy opening his social security checks to serve our designated sober driver a cup of COFFEE. with all the other bars inches away, you'd think the crew here would be tad nicer to people who want to keep them employed.

no wonder it's called the poop deck. they treat customers like....poop.

Great place, great people.. good times to be had at the PD! I like this place since it is right on the ocean with a great view. The patio is very smokey though. If you don't like smoke I would avoid it.

PROS: ocean view, great people work there
CONS:

If you drink Bud, this place is for you. The place is small but very charming in a biker/surfer kinda way. Its a very "locals" oriented bar and they have good happy hours and Bud specials. I like this place for easy going, unpretentious, don't give a "gosh darn" good times.

If the long lines and attitudes on the HB pier are beginning to annoy you, check out the Poop Deck for an antidote.

It's a hidden dive where locals order cheap pitchers of Bud two at a time.

It's not too crowded and you can watch sports there. There's a back area where you can get sun. Best kept secret on the pier!

This is a old school bar and I quite like it. The beer is cheap and that is all you will get. And by the way Budweiser is all they serve. So if youre a pretentious hussy from the Hollywood Hills or Bel Air, move on.

Although the "touristas" think these guys are the beer nazis, it is only because they are TOURISTS! The guys who run the Poop Deck are probably more genuine than any other beach bar in SoCal.They maintain the original Hermosa with authority and those that do not like it can go back to Michigan, New York, Chicago wherever JUST GO BACK!!!!!

Definitely an old bar, but it's a cool bar to just kick back and drink some beers. Budweiser is the only beer on tap. If you're a sports fan who likes teams from the New England area, then this is the bar for you. The people there are cool and really laid back.
