    Appelbees, Tony Roma's or Fronteras Grill might work (both on Main St.).

    A bit north, you might try Carmine's on Fair Oaks.

    Main St Cafe
    450 Main St, El Segundo, CA 90245

      You might check with 38 Degrees to see if they will be showing the game complete with sound. The food can be hit-or-miss but they have an excellent selection of craft beers.

          You might also try Charlie's Trio, the bar section in the one at Alhambra Road and Huntington Dr. Not a lot of visibility to the TV from the main dining area. IIRC, the restaurant on Main Street has a more wide open seating section and more visible TV. Otherwise. Alondra Hot Wings has lots of viewing screens.

          Charlie's Trio
          5769 Huntington Dr N, Los Angeles, CA 90032

              I saw the game at Northwood's Inn on Sunday night.

                Does anyone go there?
                I've never seen anyone going in or coming out.

                Remember a thread some time ago....someone inquiring about the place and was going to get back with a report but I don't think they ever did.

                  Perhaps they went in and never came back out. It looks like the kind of place that that could happen.

                    That's possible.
                    Think the poster was curious about their steaks.

                Second 38 degrees (get there early)
                Shakas is a good option as well

                    Ended up with a Laker crowd at U2 Cafe. Good place to see the game. Steamed fish and Chinese broccoli were good. Wontons were awful. Yeah Lakers!
