The location of this restaurant was awesome - right off of Main St in Venice area, across from the "Clownerina." And right down the street from the big binoculars building. The staff was very very friendly, and took care of us in a quick manner - and we were there at 6PM on a Saturday night, so expected long wait.... More

We had dinner here and the food was really good. Loved that we could get something without french fries. Good friendly service but was a little on the expensive side, and kid friendly.

Great firemans Chilli 🌶 and beautiful fresh warm tortillas. This is the bar locals go for a brew as it's a few blocks back from the tourist strip and they have that great tex mex and fresh Socal produce and a very generous serve.

Had a nice time sitting outside watching the Venice crowd go by. Excellent beer list, and surprising good sushi. Great service but limited parking on the street. Nice to browse the inside with their historical pictures of the firehouse. You cannot miss this place, on the corner of Rose and Main.

The menu offers an interesting variety including a selection for bodybuilders. (It's very near Gold's Gym). It's open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Happy Hour. Prices are competitive. The food is fresh and well prepared. Had the Chef's Salad with the low cal ranch dressing for lunch. I couldn't eat it fast enough. Just the right amount of everything. There... More

Step back a couple of blocks from the tourist boardwalk and eat at the local bar and restaurant the Firehouse. The Chilli is as good as it gets and wash it down with beer and a bourbon and escape Kale👍

Love this place for breakfast. Lots of good food bodybuilder's hangout. I'm a fan of their combo breakfasts such as pancakes bacon and eggs. Be sure to bring your appetite.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
