Time Out says

This Manhattan Beach dive bar has been a staple for locals since 1927. Nondescript and proudly showing its age with initials-etched into wooden booths, Ercole’s keeps regulars happy with its legendary burgers, which some like to swear are the best in LA. A dubious claim, but you can hardly argue with thick, juicy beef (fresh from next-door gourmet deli Manhattan Meats) and toppings piled high. The prices are reasonable across the board—pair your burger with a cold beer, or opt for a Dodger dog. Better yet, step in at the right times for the best deals, like $9 pitchers at happy hour (10am-6pm daily). With a crowded pool table in the back, classic tunes from a jukebox and a diverse crowd evenly split between salty old-timers and bro-y surfers, there is no lack of character. Cash-only, but there’s an ATM inside and several banks are walking distance.

Rude bartenders, will kick you out if they don't like the way you look. Sticks out like a sore thumb against an otherwise very positive & pleasant Manhattan Beach culture. If you want to experience discrimination of all kinds, then that should be the only time you come here. 

Best bartenders anyone could ask for and an atmosphere remnicent of Cheers! It's a place to go whether with friends or flying solo, you'll always walk out with a feeling of home.
