The view at this place is awesome. The food is big hit or big miss. March 2007 Saturday afternoon, 3 pm, my wife and I ate there and had a fantastic meal. I told many of our friends what a great meal we had.
The next week we went back for dinner and ate at 7pm. I ordered the same food we had the previous week. It was terrible, to the point if being inedible.
The bartender was shooting baskets with beer bottles like he was in a road house bar. The clatter was jarring.
The waiter was very kind. He told us that the night chef was not as good as the day chef.
This place needs a competent night time crew. It's no wonder that a place with this fantastic view location is only about 1/3 full during a beautiful sunset.

Beaches has an excellent location on Manhattan Beach Blvd overlooking the Manhattan Pier. It's a popular hangout for singles and college kids on the weekend, because it's one of the few places that plays dance music and hip hop on the weekends.

I've found the food there is not very good. The happy hour is decent ($2.00 beers), but there isn't much seating and if you're not the first 15 people to get in there, you probably will end up standing, even during happy hour.

If you're looking for a good time to meet singles on the weekend, I would definitely recommend Beaches, but if you're looking for a good bar without obnoxious people around you constantly, I would recommend Shellback or Michi's.

it's a fun bar with some good music, yet the dance floor is small. It is a good place to go for a more chill night of going out.

They have an amazing view of Manhattan Pier and the beach and a decent downstairs bar. It's an ok place to grab a drink after spending the day on the beach, but there are many better places in the area. I'd recommend walking across the street to Shellbacks or even Manhattan Beach Brewery if you're looking for food. I've had no luck with the restaurant upstairs and would avoid at all costs.

Beaches packages good food with a lovely ocean view. At lunchtime and on midweek evenings, the pace is relaxed, allowing diners to luxuriate over seafood specialties that may include ginger-crusted mahi mahi with spicy chipotle sauce and…
