Tin Roof Bistro is a Manhattan Beach spot that’s ideal for big groups. They’ve earned a large local following thanks to their semi-regular bocce tournaments and a fantastic patio, and while there’s good food as well, you’re really there to toss a couple balls and enjoy and some rosé. If that sounds like the perfect way to spend a summer day, this is your spot.

Fishing With Dynamite
We don’t use the term “destination restaurant” lightly. But the seafood at Manhattan Beach’s Fishing With Dynamite more than fits the bill.
When it comes to old standbys, El Coyote is about as accurate as that term gets. Come here for the drinks, the history, the atmosphere, the conversation, and inevitably, the sloppy walk home.
