Hmmm. Does Denny's restaurant rate this high. I could have sworn I just ate at Denny's. The food, the service, and what are the hours? Denny's is fine for it's purpose. But, it is maybe a 2 star restaurant. So, I give one star for pretending to be different than Denny's, cause it doesn't taste different.

First time visit. Reviewed all ratings. Really looking forward to visit. Waiter screwed my order up. Finally when I got the right order after everyone at the table had finished. No appoligy , also readjusted the bill so it was a higher price, no coffee refill for people waiting for me to finish.. Needless to say won't visit again.
Though the food is not spectacular, it is the fairly easy-going vibe and breakfast-for-dinner-at-one in the morning that gets the crowds here. Waiters and waitresses are hit-or-miss in terms of personality and dependability, but usually it's a good experience. I wouldn't go for anything ornate or even ambitious. Try pancakes, eggs, french toast, or dessert. Some salads are good and you can't go wrong with grilled cheese or mac and cheese. Kids love chocolate chip pancakes and big fat french fries. I see someone I know literally every time I am here--it is a Manhattan Beach staple.

I don't like to complain, but I had an awfull time here. I took some friends, to show them what all the fuss was about- and i was so embarassed. Here's what I learned- Don't try the bbq chicken salad- my friend barely touched it- it liooked awful. Also, If you find a hair in your food (like I did) Don't tell the waitress! She was so ornery, she seemed angry with me for letting her know! I got a snappy retort, ""So, d'ya want me to bring you a new one, or what?"". Maybe it was just a bad night- but I haven't been back.

I have to admit, I have never been to the Kettle before midnight and that fact that they have bouncers at the door kind of says it all. It is great late night dining after hours of frolicking at the neighboring bars. Avoid the wait and grab a seat at the counter. Priceless entertainment comes along with with the seat and the yummy food.
