Patrick's Roadhouse Keeps It Real

One of LA’s hottest places for breakfast and lunch is Patrick’s Roadhouse. A Santa Monica beach landmark on the corner of Pacific Coast Highway and Entrada Drive, Patrick’s Roadhouse isn’t well-known to the general public. Once an actual rail house and brothel, it ‘s been a favorite underground eatery of the stars since the 1970’s.

On the outside, even with its bright green color overlooking the ocean, the place looks a bit worn. Inside you’ll feel like you’re eating in a crowded antique store. The wooden tables and chairs are from yesterday, and framed memorabilia, antique paintings and knick-knacks fill the walls. It all adds up to an incredibly comfortable place to chill and hang out. They even offer board games for patrons to spend time and enjoy themselves at their tables.

Service can be mixed. Sometimes fast, sometimes not, but they always try to make you feel at home. As long as you come with people you like and you’re not in any hurry, you won’t really care. Dress is casual with a capital ‘C.’ Shorts, T-shirt, flip-flops and trucker cap are perfect summer attire to match the local crowd.

The food is classic Americana diner fare with their own delicious twists and more than generous portions. In fact, Patrick’s received great exposure on TV Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” in 2007 when host Guy Fieri raved about the food and burgers.

Their heavenly burger is the “Rockefeller, Hughes, Getty, Onasis Burger.” Most of their burgers cost around $8, but for a whopping $15.00 this one comes with mushrooms, jack cheese, a dab of sour cream and CAVIAR! It’s as good as a $25 burger from a fancy restaurant. All sandwiches come with deliciously seasoned crispy fries.

Can’t decide what to order? Fish and Chips are world famous here and a smart bet. Be hungry because they serve you Moby Dick.

Yet their omelets are so delicious. Try The Number 5: Roasted peppers, feta cheese, chilies and sauteed onions. Yum! Belgian waffles, pancakes and French toast are tasty options as well. Combine them with a bottomless cup of coffee and you get the perfect breakfast to cure a ‘morning after.’ There’s no ‘hair of the dog’ as they do not serve any alcohol. But don’t forget a slice of Banana Cream Pie can also help make you feel better.

Much appreciated on the menu is the offering of turkey sausage for those who don’t eat pork.

Parking is definitely an issue since they do not have their own lot. If you live nearby or up for a bike ride, the beach bike path passes across the street with a pedestrian tunnel crossing PCH a block from the restaurant. Leave your bike locked up in front.

There’s a parking lot up Entrada Drive on the right hand side. Weekends it costs $3 with validation. The attendant arrives around 10am. And there is some metered street parking.

Before or after your meal, be sure to get your feet wet in the Pacific ocean.

a unique and funky canyon restaurant

Silvio is a great host and sets the warm and inviting tone. The food is good, the coffee is hot, and it's fun to hang out there, especially at breakfast time. If you want to make a change from the menu it's no problem. Pleasant service.…

Funky Food - In a Bad Way

Patrick's Roadhouse holds some kind of sporadic appeal for my husband. We tried it a few years ago, but when he wanted to try it again, all I could remember was that the the dining area is narrow--which meant the food was not memorable. …
