The Waterfront Venice is dedicated to quality offerings and relaxed community hangs. Established in 1995 as a primary local hangout and foreign destination, The Waterfront is known for its casual cuisine, cold beer, and comfortable surroundings. The restaurant has been through various era’s of Venice’s history and continues to remain anchored as a local destination with authentic California vibes.


As a group of longtime friends living and raising our families in Venice, re-introducing this local establishment is something personal. We love the boardwalk, the beach, the ocean, and most of all the diverse culture and rich history of Venice. Our goal with The Waterfront is to create a soulful beach destination where new and old friends come together to hang and have a chill time. As the neighborhood continues to evolve, we aim to uphold the authentic and colorful aesthetic unique to Venice Beach by collaborating with friends and talent within the community wherever possible.

The Waterfront cuisine reflects the restaurant’s beachside location, serving casual carnivore and vegetarian options made with high-quality ingredients daily. Waterfront’s assorted seating locations compliment our varied menu selections including breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and special off-menu happy hour items. Some people come here for the breakfast and some for the dinner program. Either way, it’s all good and we got you covered!  View menu!
