20 Top South Bay Restaurants

*Updated* March, 2015

As a local South Bay Realtor, I spend most of my days jumping from on home to another. The only breaks I get are during lunch and dinner, which as a major foodie means constantly exploring new restaurants. I love supporting the local community and one of the ways I alway try to stay connected and giving back is by constantly exploring and visiting locally owned restaurants.

South Bay Restaurants

Recently a friend of mine and I were debating about which were the best restaurants in the South Bay. Because there are so many to choose from, I actually had a hard time picking. So I just scanned through my recent Facebook check-ins and threw together a list of my favorites in Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach. Some are fancy sit-down places and others are just fun places to get a quick meal. Ambiance is often a big part of a meal for me. I like people-watching and seeing the sights as I enjoy my lunch or dinner.

There are many more great South Bay restaurants to choose from and so many more that could have made this list. I'm always out and about in town and enjoy taking a breather by sitting down to enjoy a great meal.

Ok, I would like to add a very special restaurant to this list. It's not technically in the South Bay, but we just had a fantastic meal at Eatalian in the hood in Gardena. My new favorite Italian restaurant. Definitely give it a try. http://www.eataliancafe.com/

Terranea has to be one of the highlights of my trip to the South Bay area! I would strongly recommend a visit here and dining at the Catalina Kitchen. Fantastic views and awesome food!!! Gary :)
