Visited Plan Check in Santa Monica last month. It's a smallish open air restaraunt and bar. Chicken and waffles was my choice for lunch. Was delicious.

Busy place. Arrive early or expect a wait. Hamburgers are great, smoky chicken and waffle chicken also deserve a thumbs up. Happy hour ends at 6 and couldn't smooze a beer price lower when arrived shortly after six.
