One of the nicest brunch spots in the area. Great ambiance and great food. Loved the eggs with corned beef hash . Eggs benedict home made Canadian bacon and hollandaise really good too. Good decaf lattes and nice food portions. Excellent service. A go back. Bloody Mary's with bacon, yummm. Nice ambiance and view.

Went with my wife on Sunday, although there was plenty of alternative seating we were given a corner table on the terrace wedged between the wall and the access door with a speaker blaring somewhat load music directly at us (we were alone) on the terrace. After some unnecessary discussion/delay we where reseated. The staff was friendly and the food... More

Beautiful spot for a relaxing dinner while the sun sets. Had the branzino - excellent. The donuts for dessert seemed like an excellent choice. Would recommend it.

The views from the dining area are fabulous with floor to ceiling windows. First floor bar had great seating and open windows to enjoy the beach views and sounds. They also had several private rooms that would be great for small parties. We shared several dishes & a pizza. The scallops were fantastic!

We sat at a table overlooking the sea at sunset. It was stunning. Started with the oysters. They were so fresh. Salads were yummy, and the branzino excellent. The service was just right and the wines great. The second time here in a month and I live an hour away. The place was hopping on a Sunday evening.

We booked a reservation online but noticed that there were plenty of tables. They hold back 25% for drop-ins, which is nice. Scoring a window table during sunset was a lovely surprise as we totally enjoyed our experience. We were seated by the restaurant manager, Doug…which is always a nice way to start the evening. He told us The Strand... More

We found this restaurant on an LA trip when we wanted to go to a beach town. We arrived in Manhattan Beach in the early afternoon and were looking for lunch for our party of 5. We found The Strand House about a block from the beach. They were busy but had open seating on the lower level inside which... More

Meeting old cruising friends for a casual lunch and The Strand House was perfect. Perhaps our reservation helped and we were seated at the window with a beautiful ocean view. The brunch menu gave everyone numerous choices which we took advantage of. We ordered everything from pizza to a tuna salad and French toast. All were well prepared. Bottom line...very... More

Came here with a group of clients in January. Although we were not able to see the ocean, we had a wonderful spot with a fire pit right by the door. Drinks were very good, and food was decent but the ambiance made it amazing. I'd go here again for business and/or pleasure.

Came here based upon all of the great reviews and have my own "mixed" review to share..... No doubt strand House has some of the most amazing views of the ocean. In fact there are 2 stories of views to choose from if they are not packed. However I was a bit disappointed by the very limited dinner menu. I'm... More
