For the past seven months, I have been one of those people who take the pandemic very seriously and have tried my best not to go out or dine outside due to safety precautions. However, when I was invited by The Pier House to dine in their patio right in front of Venice Beach, I just couldn’t say no. One of the things I’ve been dreaming about during this pandemic is to just eat oysters and have drinks by the beach and thanks to Pier House, they made my dream come true and so much more! The Pier House, is a beachfront restaurant and bar in Venice, CA with a coastal California style seafood menu and has recently extended its patio to accommodate a surge in customers.I felt very safe from the moment I got in and sat down at the patio up to devouring their delicious food and drinks!
We ordered savory crab bagels, octopus tacos to the best lobster omelet I’ve ever had in my life to the classic French Toast with a modern twist! And of course, we ordered some oysters as that’s what we came there for! Our server Julia gave us a wonderful recommendation to try their crab and lobster claws and boy, weren’t we glad she recommended that! Their seafood is truly delectable as I can still taste the freshness of the lobsters, crabs and oysters in my mouth. Mitchell, one of their friendly managers also gave us their one of a kind, delectable fresh scallops as it was recommended by the Chef. Let’s just say I’m still dreaming about those scallops!
The Pier House is paying homage to Venice history and The Dancehall of the original Venice Pier in the early 1900s, the venue represents an all-new vintage inspired design, bringing a refreshed vibe to the are known as Washington Square. The menu from Executive Chef Alexander Schwartzman seafood inspired menu features classic fish house dished with a modern twist. If you’re looking for a new brunch place, don’t look any further and go on your dates here or round up your girl friends so you can spend the rest of the day by the beach after having their heavenly food and drinks!
