There's a restaurant on Main Street in Santa Monica that takes you in with a dark warm glittering welcome. Its old style seafood-house decor is wrapped everywhere with multicolored twinkle lights. They have a good happy hour at the bar, or you can sit down for table service.
You slide into the embrace of a red vinyl booth, and relax. The waitress brings your drinks.
The cocktail napkins are politically incorrect.
Here's how they serve the martini olives.
The food is good old American classic. The steaks are pretty good, and so's the seafood. Garlic mashed potatoes and spinach round out a fine meal. It's always good to eat seafood in a restaurant that features portholes for windows.
