Came here twice already once for lunch and once for dinner and have not been disappointed. Lunch time they offer a lunch special that comes with tasty sourdough bread, soup, salad and grilled fish of your choice yum! The clam chowder was good a little on the sweet side tho. the fish was not overcooked at all and very flavorful Dinnertime is packed here so be ready to wait at least 30 mins on a prime night. that time I tried the grilles lobster tacos which are pretty good and perfectly cooked.

A welcome addition to Manhattan Beach. this used to be Sharkeez, and is such a huge improvement. Prices are high, but they have a lot of great menu offerings. Breakfast (lobster hash!) until 2 pm and a variety of healthy items like grilled salmon, tilapia etc.

My new favorite happy hour in the south bay! Well, yeah, maybe it's my first happy hour in the south bay...... but I'm pretty confident it will still be my favorite.
I'm new to working in this area and tried it out one day after work last week. HH is 2-6 (they SAY in the bar area only, but they don't mean it) and offers discounts such as $3 house wines, draft beers, and well drinks, $5 Absolut cocktails, and a wide variety of food items ranging between $2.99 (garlic fries) and $7.99. It's also Oyster Hour from 2-6, with $1.99 oysters on a half shell.
If you don't feel like cruising for a meter, you can park in the structure across the street (look for the signs that still say "Sharkeez Parking," one of FishBar's former incarnations) with generous meters. Probably the only meters that still take quarters and that you can park at to use the rest of someone's time, cheap bastard style.
The house white wine was actually really good and the well drinks were strong. Don't you love the way that you can order one drink at a bar, and the next one is almost always stronger? It's as if the bartender sees your order and thinks, "all right, this mofo is here to DRINK." I was very happy with the drinks, and the specialty cocktails looked interesting too.
Blue Crab Nachos - Delicious nachos with generous crab, avocado sauce, chipotle sauce, pico de gallo, cheese, and sour cream. An unlikely combo of ingredients that worked together very well.
Chipotle calamari - We decided on this over the regular calamari, and I'm so glad we did. The chipotle sauce wasn't overpowering, and didn't make the fried calamari lose its crispiness.
Garlic fries - Crispy fat fries with a good amount of garlic. Not to die for, but fries are fries, and good for the price.
Oysters - I didn't used to like oysters until I had really great ones (and I got spoiled in Florida). These were very good and fresh.
The interior is bright, comfortable, and welcoming. And there are screens EVERYWHERE. Like 3 of them above a booth. I'm just saying, that may be another reason to take a first date here, because sometimes those are boring.
I loved everything about this happy hour. Anyone want to go back today?
