Islands is one of my favorite places to eat at. The restaurant specializes in gourmet burgers but with a Hawaiian theme. Yes, even the servers wear those great colorful Hawaiian shirts that I love so much. One of the best burgers that i have found unique to this restaurant is the Hawaiian burger which is made with pineapple and Teriyaki sauce, a combination that compliments each other.
Coal Vines is a pizza and wine bar that is open till Midnight through Wednesday and 1 A.M. Thursday through Saturday. Located on Cedar Springs Road, Coal Vines’ wine list is your typical French variety wines in red and white. Even their eggplant sandwich is upscale with a casual flair. This is fine dinner around me that you want at late night without a grease pit or upscale prices.
The prices are very reasonable and the food is delicious. The service is excellent which makes this a very welcoming and comfortable place to enjoy a great meal. Another great aspect of this restaurant is that they also serve breakfast and the menu is bound to please just about anyone. Shark’s Cove is located right on the beach so as you are strolling the strand in Manhattan Beach, be sure to stop in and have a great meal.
Thirdly, the food is overpriced for the quality. The food is decent, but if you’re dining on a budget, you may be dissapointed. While the large portions could help to justify the price, and the food is not even close to the price of food at some other restaurants in town, I find that the food and service is simply not worth the price. For instance, the burgers and cheeseburgers are far more expensive than those at similar restaurants in the area, as are the alcoholic mixed drinks. The strawberry daquiris are very weak, moreover, and don’t even taste good. The waiters and waitresses can also be inattentive, and my order has been messed up on more than one occasion.
DESERT DEMONSTRATION GARDEN – Is a display of hundreds of desert plants and explaining how desert plants grow in the desert. It also has a relaxing beautiful environment packed with birds and plants. Books, scopes, measuring tools, and other items are available to buy daily.
Most Cici Pizza location will make any pizza you can dream up and it won’t cost you anything extra. Just tell the chef what you want (Buffalo chicken pizza, mac and cheese pizza, etc) and if they have the ingredients they will whip it up for you!!
With so many different influences; it’s hard not to find something that warms any palate – and any wallet when it comes to dining. Whether its Cuban inspired arroz con pollo at the Little Havana Restaurant, a crab sampler at the rustic Inn Crabhouse or a traditional steak dinner at Houstons on the Intercoastal, you really have a ton to choose from; with different prices to suit any budget.
