Super crowded. Kind of a hip and fun place (a good mix of tourists and LA locals) for being located on a small side street in Venice very close to the boardwalk. There is a parking garage located next to the restaurant which is helpful, but their restaurant exterior sign isn’t that big or flashy, you’ll just know it’s there because there’s a few other restaurants right on that block.

“I Love You Man” had a scene that was filmed there, which is their big claim to fame, and the reason why I think it attracts so many people. The seafood is decent but not necessarily enough to make you return more than once if you are not from the area or trying to entertain out-of-town guests beachside.

Definitely try the fish tacos while you are here and the calamari.
