We are going to the Redondo Beach Pier for the Saturday music in the park - what is our best option for eating on the pier or nearby? Thanks!

    Izakaya Bincho (depending on what time you want to eat of course). See this review: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/5634...

      I second Izakaya Bincho.

      I never turn down snacking of freshly shucked oysters at Quality Seafood next door though.

          I was visiting from San Francisco about three weeks ago and was seriously blown away by the food at Gabrinus!

            Had some great seafood etouffee, chicken 'n waffles, and chowder at Kincaid's to go along with their great bread. Gambrinus seriously looks good and I mean to try it next time I'm there.

              Hi, anperkins!

              I heartily recommend that you go to the Redondo Beach Pier and enjoy a Dungeness crab feast. Where you go once you get there depends upon how you want it prepared and with what you want to accompany it. Two choices stand apart from the rest.

              If you want a traditional American style preparation, go to Quality Seafood. They offer the largest selection and the highest quality in the area, perhaps in all of SoCal. Make your own selections from live seafood tanks filled with well over 50 types of crab, lobsters, oysters, clams, mussels, sea urchin, other mollusks, fish and shrimp. They will prepare them for you while you wait. Their signature method of crab preparation is simple - live, whole and steamed inside a plastic bag. This method retains more of the original crab essence than does boiling. Lay out the supplied newspaper and make a mess on the umbrella-covered stone tables as you bang away at dismembering your crab with one of the provided wooden mallets. Nice selection of on-tap and bottled beers.

              If you fancy a Korean style presentation, including boiled (not steamed) crab, rice, panchan, kim chee and maeuntang (spicy seafood soup) along with Korean beers (Hite, OB) and soju, then go to Pacific Fish Center. It is the most popular of the Korean style seafood houses on the pier. Please be aware that you will generally pay more at PFC, or other Korean-owned venues, than at Quality Seafood. In return, you do receive a higher level of attention and service from the wait staff. You do not get to make your own specific selections, however, and the variety of offerings is not as great as at Quality Seafood.
