Rehearsal Dinner in Long Beach/San Pedro?

Hi chowhounds! I'm beginning the search for rehearsal dinner locations and am in need of some suggestions for the Long Beach/San Pedro area. We're going to have a lot of out-of-towners (including me and my fiance), so I don't want folks to have to drive far. I'm not looking for something really formal -- more fun. Probably will have about 30 people at the dinner. I'd like American cuisine with a bit of variety, and not opposed to chains in order to keep the costs down (a la cheesecake factory). Appreciate your help!

  1. La Palapa Del Mar (in Long Beach) is a great, fun place for a group. The owners will take great care of you, and the bartenders are the best.
    They just set up a new patio area right on the water, so the view is great. I've never had a negative experience there with either food or service.
