Favorite Manhattan Beach Restaurants

  • Jul 23, 2009
it's really hard to stack rank all these restaurants because depending on my mood i could be up for high end sushi or a greasy chicken taco... but here is my best to rank them overall. Some more segmented lists will like come later.
Exterior View
great high end sushi but still maintains the friendly service. been waiting for a place this Manhattan Beach for a long time.
Cafe in Manhattan Beach
this is a recent addition to Manhattan Beach. Opened in 2006 i'm guessing. Great breakfast, sandwiches, and now dinner even. Mouth is watering as i write this. I'd stop by for dinner right now, but they close at 8 and it's past that. Bummed.
brand new addition to the MB restaurant scene and it has a great vibe. see my full review here: http://www.lunch.com/data/Simmzy_s-1389279-R...taurant_scene-9019.html

El Gringo
Great for beers and mexican food. They have location a location in Hermosa Beach too. Their machaca and eggs is some of the best i've ever had.
See the full review, "Great food and even better catering!".
Photo of Bar
great location... good food... great wine list that is reasonably priced. LOUD but good fun scene if you can put up with the noise.
Mama D's Manhattan Beach location
i used to eat here almost every Sunday night. There is something very comforting about this place.
El Tarasco
a staple of north Manhattan Beach. I will put their chicken tacos up against anyone.
Petros Logo
high quality food no doubt about it. wine list is weak and pricey however.
Exterior View
it's cozy little neighborhood spot. struggles a bit with it's identity between being a nice/high end spot and a small quaint corner restaurant. food is good and with all the windows it feels much bigger than it really is
Wahoos logo
if i want something cheap and healthy, i go here. Also if you want a beer they have $1.75 beer of the month specials.
Restaurant and Bar in Manhattan Beach CA
food is good, vibe is very clubby. you need to be ready for a big night out really get the most out of Mucho
good location downtown. food is good. wine list is extensive. sometimes i get a weird vibe from the hostesses. Kind of snobby and a little pretentious for the beach.
Shellback Tavern Logo
i've never eaten here, but it deserves mention because some of my friends love it... and it's Shellback for pete's sake.
best location in town but the worst food. This is the place that everyone goes when they visit Manhattan Beach because it has such a great view. The food consistently disappoints unfortunately.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Whoop. I love these. I'll be cranking some out in my "free" time.

If Shellback were a luxury car commercial it would sound something like this: Slide into Shellback; where exquisite hand-crafted wood meets lavishly equipped pitchers of Bud Light. A place where cougars and adolescents co-exist like never before…

great shellback take! that's good enough to warrant a full review, that way anytime someone looks at Shellback they can enjoy your wit, humor, and dead one accurate assessment of that establishment.
