This is a scruffy neighborhood joint, a watering hole that has been going strong for decades under the guidance of owner Jay Fiondella, who ran the place for over 40 years. He recently died at age 82. Presently, long-time manager Michael Anderson is in charge. It is conveniently located above Santa Monica Beach just south of the Santa Monica Pier on Ocean Avenue, close to major hotels. They are known for serving mainly steak and seafood.

A genuine little dive with sawdust and peanut shells on the floor.
