Built in 1917, the historic building now home to our Santa Monica restaurant was once a transfer station for the narrow-gauge Red Car line, Los Angeles' first mass transit system. It was later the repair house for the world-famous Pacific Ocean Park, home to the oldest wooden roller coaster west of the Mississippi. These days, we're still a stone's throw from Venice Beach, heart of where L.A. goes to play -- and eat. Also just a few blocks from the waterfront, our sister restaurant in Santa Barbara operates in a century-old brick building originally home to an industrial linen service for seaside hotels. While the Douglas fir floors, soaring ceilings, and glassed cupola have always been features of this historic structure, the sweeping arches facing State Street were added after much of the building crumbled during the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake.

Hello Enterprise Fish Company, how did I not go here before??? 2 words: HAPPY HOUR!
Come between M-F from 4-7pm or if you want a late night one 9-11pm. Apparently they have one on weekends too but I'm not sure. As a note, it is only available in the bar and patio area.
The seafood is absolutely amazing and they have great deals on it too. Oysters are $1.50 each, they have little pots of clams, mussels, etc. for about $7 each. It's all so fresh and very flavorful. You can tell they get it right out of the ocean and prep it really well. If you're not too much into seafood, they do have other items like quesadilla, steak skewers, and more!
The drinks are also fantastic! They have $7 cocktails and martinis, $4 beers/wine, $4 well drinks. Although it was hard to find a place to sit, I eventually ended up at a side bar area and even though it was super busy, they were thoroughly staffed and very attentive. It was busy the entire time, the happy hour was set.
