Been a few years since I had been here. Yup, worth the wait. Same decor, including coffee urn outside while you wait on a Saturday morning. A couple of family members have diet restrictions and both had no problem finding something on the breakfast menu....More

Belly-busting breakfasts with homemade muffins or biscuits. Coffee from Java Man (same owner). Waffles & pancakes. Great meatloaf (with breakfast or dinner). Genuine chicken pot pies. Take your appetite ... a big appetite ... and make your tummy happy!

What we like about Ocean Diner is the consistency. You can count on a good, simple meal at a good price. It's not the fanciest place around, but you can count on the quality. The tortilla skillet and the omelets are well worth ordering. Ocean...More

I have been a resident of Hermosa Beach for 15 years and have always relied on The Ocean Diner to provide outstanding service and even better food. It is infused with local ambience, and has a menu that is both traditional and eclectic. It is...More

This place serves frozen food from a box. Chicken fingers, sloppy macaroni (adding diced tomatoes and sprinkling Parmesan does not make it homemade), and a frozen steak patty is just so sad. My party of two spent over $40 on something that took very little...More
