"An oldie but goodie", this circa-1959 Santa Monica "dive" is a "sentimental favorite" for "decent" steaks that "won't break the bank" helped along by "stiff drinks" in a "kitschy" setting with red-checkered tablecloths and sawdust on the floor; most "don't go for the food", but "if you want to experience a little bit of Hollywood history by the beach, then this is the place."
