Surf’s Up at Surfside Bar and Grill – Just Steps Away from Venice Beach Boardwalk! A Restaurant Review
Great new hotspot in Venice is Surfside Bar and Grill. They just completed a full renovation of the space (formerly Danny’s Deli) and created a very cool beach-inspired design in this popular new restaurant just steps away from the Venice Beach Boardwalk.
Surfide is a surf and sports bar that serves west coast comfort beach food, features 13 big screen TV’s showing local & international sports, and is a live music venue. It has an appeal for all, and somehow it all melds together quite well. It’s the perfect place to spend a relaxing, long day with friends.
The large, multi-level space has cocktail bar seating, large comfortable booths, hightop sport bar seating. The upstairs is a historic gallery, featuring local historical & modern Venice Beach photographs.
And even better… the food is quite good! Surfside’s founding Executive Chef Jesse Gutierrez has created a diverse selection of menu items to entice beachside guests from California comfort food, to a delicious mix of LA-Korean inspired dishes, sustainable seafood and vegan and vegetarian options.
