    Polly's on the Pier: Breakfast with a view

    by bennforlife Written Dec 1, 2014

    What can I say about Polly's on the Pier? It's basically a diner.. located on a pier.. called Polly's. Good food, though I've only had breakfast there. There's a few tables outside in front and a few more inside. There usually seems to be a wait for the outside tables, so grab a table inside by the window for a nice view of the bay.

    Favorite Dish: I recommend the French toast and Huevos Rancheros.

    HT GRILL: Great Spot In The Village

    by kahnjetta Updated Nov 25, 2014

    H T Grill is located in the heart of Rivera Village. HT Grill has a comfortable & welcoming atmosphere, with a bright staff to match! The patio's fire-pit are wonderful , the food is always great and certain nights offer amazing local live musicians. The perfect spot to stop after a fulfilled day of shopping in the Rivera Village. The menu offers great appetizers to choose from, my favorite is the Firecracker Shrimp. The dinner menu has a variety to choose from, Seared European Sea Bass along with many other fresh seafood dishes. They also have a Bourbon Street Flat Iron, if beef is your preference. Their wine list is out standing starting at a Trefethen ~ Chardonnay, Napa Valley and Las Rocas ~ Garnacha, Spain . The Mango Martina is simply delicious, along with many other flavors. So when you are in Redondo Beach, be sure to stop in for a drink and enjoy the relaxed setting by the beach.

    Favorite Dish: Bleu Cheese Filet, it will melt in your mouth.

The menu is a Provenscale and Tuscan cuisine with a flare of California style.The menu has an variety of items,from the appetizers to the main entrees. My favorite is the Seared Scallops and the Filet Mignon- Gorgonzola-Merlot Sauce. The prices are about average, and the service is outstanding.

    Samba Brazilian Steakhouse & Bar: Buffet Dining

    by Gillybob Updated Aug 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a Churrasco restaurant - an eat as much as you like buffet restaurant with a slight difference. Salads and vegetables are served buffet style whilst on your table is a cylindrical piece of wood with red and green ends; have the red end to the top and you are not ready to be served meats - reverse it and it shows that you want to be served meats. Meats are brought out fresh from the kitchen on great metal stakes and carved at your table.

    Go up to the buffet area as many times as you like for salads and vegetables and some stew-style meat dishes; you can then have your green end up as many times as you like.

    I had the Churrasco Feast. It was a quiet evening and service from the kitchen was slow but dishes on offer at the buffet were very good and plentiful.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed all that I chose to eat and enjoyed a glass of La Playa Chardonnay to go with my meal.

    The Churrasco Feast and glass of wine cost US$40 (prices at November 2008).

    Meat is carved at your table

    The Boiling Shrimp: Yum Yum

    by dgines Written Mar 14, 2014

    Boiling Crab by another name? It's close to it. I had the garlic dungeness crab here and it was delicious, but expensive. My husband had the shrimp pad thai and it wasn't the best we've ever had, but decent. Beers were only $3.50, which is decent for a place right on the water.

    Favorite Dish: Garlic Crab!

  • Cozy Cafe: Great breakfasts

    by flynboxes Written Nov 17, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a little place with more seating in the back patio. It is a breakfast and lunch place for the most part but you get large portions and some surly but classic attitude from the owner/chef George. (he does not like you asking for changes to his dishes and may give you some friendly grief for it - but he will accommodate most times)
    The place has counter seating up front for about 10 people on bar stools with a tv hanging to watch the game of the day.
    Most of his dishes have a touch of Mexican/Greek influence as well as a little bit of grease to appeal to the local surfers.
    I wish there were more places like this around town.

    Favorite Dish: The Beach Bum scramble with jalapeno salsa on the side is the best......portion is big enough to get you thru lunch which is rare in this day and age.

    Breakfast with the wife and my nephew Wil. He took a picture of us so we took one of George.

    Ruby's Diner: Dining by the sea!

    by Gillybob Updated Aug 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ruby's Diners can be found all across the United States of America. This one was conveniently situated across from the Crowne Plaza Redondo Beach and Marina which was my hotel for my stay in Redondo Beach. This made it very convenient for breakfast.

    Like most diners in America, this offers a selection of standard menu fare. I had the two eggs with bacon breakfast and a coffee.

    Good value food and a great menu selection is what Ruby's Diners are all about.

    Favorite Dish: Each Ruby's Diner is slightly unique. They all have a track running around the restaurant in the ceiling. This one had mobiles of fish running along the track. Others that I have seen have had a train running along the track and mobiles of various items.

    Ruby Restuarant interior with view through to grill Fish mobiles on track Breakfast!

    Kincaid's: Great food and view

    by krizt Updated Apr 4, 2011

    My Uncle Kenny and Aunt Patricia have taken me here a couple of times. We can never think of the name but last time I spoke to him he said it is Kincaid's. Hope it's right. Anyway it's located down by the pier. The view is amazing and the food was excellent! We went to eat dinner and watched the sunset. It was georgous- the light from the sunset fills the room with a beautiful glow.

    After you eat you can walk around the pier and marina - take a light jacket though, it can get chilly!

    If you check out the website below they have 360 views!

    Favorite Dish: I think that I had a steak- I dont remember. It's been a while but I remember being completely stuffed. And I remember that it was incredebly delicious.

    Good Stuff: Breakfast and other Good Stuff!

    by leeludalas Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Good Stuff is a great place to go for breakfast - sit on the patio and people watch. It's located next to the Coffee Bean, so if you have to wait you can grab a nice coffee. Their food is consistently good, and the wait staff are quick. Plus they automatically provide salsa and Tabasco on the table which I like!

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Chile Verde Breakfast Burrito- a large burrito stuffed with brown rice, eggs and Chicken in a verde sauce. Also the California omelette and the Greek omelette are quite good!
    Lunch and dinner are good too. Red Hook on tap.

    JOE'S CRAB SHACK: FANTASTIC SEAFOOD MENU WITH A VIEW OF THE BAY

    by travelgourmet Written Dec 8, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Seafood restaurants always seem to look and feel better when they are located by water. The Pacific Ocean and the Redondo Beach Seaside Lagoon has one of the best seafood restaurants located on Portofino Way across from the Port Royal Marina, ocean side of Harbor Drive. Joe's Crab Shack is the name and seafood is the game. Well, actually it's not game but fish that makes Joe's so appealing. Entering their parking lot and you can see that this is going to be something special. Just the shape of the shack and the colors used bring one a fun time experience is about to commence.

    Inside the doors, and you enter a natical world of Joe's Crab Shack with a huge but fake shark taking a bite out of a surf board right over your head. A seaside bar area for that special drink that can be made for you. Funny sayings and doors with "Dudes" and "Babes" inviting you into the restrooms. The tables inside are simple and sturdy with the natical theme but outside, and most days are great days to be outside, the tables and umbrellas are set up along the bay side of the ocean for a spectacular view. The menu is filled with buckets of this and buckets of that and wonderful seafood dishes. The bar drinks are superb and the beer flows. A day in Redondo made relaxing and fulfilling with either lunch or dinner at the Shack.

    Favorite Dish: I love mussels and my wife found out about mussels in Italy, so now I would say we both love mussels. Joe's Crab Shack is known for crab and the different types are brought out in buckets put on the table and then a shell trash bucket is placed in the center hole of the table for all to share the discarding of shells, napkins, peel shrimp, etc. Mussels Diablo was on the menu and that did it. It was so good and the pico de gallo salsa (chopped tomatoes, onion and jalapeno with a lime juice and cilantro finish) that was mixed in over the mussels was picante (hot) but oh, so tasty, that we ordered another large plate. Also a very rich dish called Crab Nachos which was a large plate of tortilla chips loaded with crab dip, that pico de gallo salsa (yum), cheese and black bean corn relish. Add a couple of "Mason Jar" Margaritas (1800 Silver TEQUILA, Gran Gala, sweet &sour and squeezed limes all mixed together in aclassic mason jar.) and you have one heck of a lunch.

    JOE'S CRAB SHACK   SEAFOOD HEAVEN MUSSELS DIABLO ES MUY CALIENTE PILED HIGH CRAB NACHOS IS A WINNER REDONDO BEACH VIEW FROM JOE'S CRAB SHACK MANY MARGARITAS AND YOU MAY VISIT DUDES OR BABES

    Joe's Crab Shack: Seafood in a crazy atmosphere

    by Lizchiq Written Mar 31, 2009

    Joe's Crab Shack is a popular restaurant chain known for their seafood dishes. We went to the one here in the Redondo Beach Harbor, lured in by their commercials promoting their steam pots and lobster.

    We went on a Monday night and they happened to be out of lobster, which was one of the main reasons we went in. We ordered crab stuffed mushrooms (really tasty, a little greasy but very satisfying), followed by the Joe's Steampot. The crab and the sausage were really good, but the shrimp was a bit of a letdown, as was the corn; however, the crab certainly exceeded my expectations.

    Finished with some bread pudding - pretty good as well.

    I'd recommend this place more as a casual night with a big group of friends - and if you don't care about shelling seafood, it's quite fun. Definitely not as much a date spot as there is some loud music and the waiters dance around, and the tables are larger and bench-style.

    Favorite Dish: Anything with crab would probably be the best.
