"The 13 Best Places to Drink in Santa Monica"
"Chez Jay ~ The most classic bar on the Westside (and probably in all of LA) is this steak-serving, seaside shanty shack. It's got an overwhelmingly charming nautical theme, overwhelmingly delicious filets, and overwhelmingly strong drinks."

One of the few dive bars left in Santa Monica....thank God they didn't allow developers to tear this place down. Great history, always an interesting audience at the bar. Good drinks,good food and good prices. Bartender says "Throw the peanut shells on the floor or you're out the door"

On a Saturday night, most places in Santa Monica were packed with a 45 min wait for a table. I walked in here, got seated right away and had awesome food! I recommend the filet mignon bernaise and the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. The place is dimly lit with Christmas lights and is a little cramped but its great.

A relic. It's exactly what you need if you came to Santa Monica looking for a beachy, non-cheesy, drinking experience. Supposedly the site of a JFK and Marilyn Monroe rendezvous, the charm and history is unmistakable. It's a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink and will leave you feeling like you saw some sights.

My girl and I were looking for place to have a good dinner in town, but were tired of the general stream restaurants in town, found Chez Jay online saw the reviews and WOOWWW , the perfect place to go eat and enjoy a good night out wit that special someone or just have a drink with the guys.... good food , great prices , and relaxed atmosphere ....

Go for the experience. A dive bar but a wonderful dive bar. In addition to the amazing history of the place, very generous pours and friendly, unpretentious bar tender and servers. Ignore the scores, it's a "must" place to visit in Santa Monica.

I've passed by Chez Jay for years and never went in until this past weekend, and my oh my, was it wonderful. Between the peanut shells crunching beneath my feet and the old timey sailing decor, this place lived up to its dive bar rep, and I love a good dive. We stopped in for happy hour drinks and apps, which were quite reasonably priced and large in portion. Do yourself a favor, get the calamari steak! It's exquisite.

steak au poivre, with its buttery crust of peppercorns and bacon bits, is fantastic. cozy. reservations for dinner are a must.
