The list of restaurants covers every type of food, beer and cocktail that your heart desires. You could start with what could be considered not just the finest steakhouse in Long Beach, but all of Los Angeles, Chianina Steakhouse. You could then venture over to a staple of Long Beach, the Belmont Brewing Co., not only home to great food and fantastic beer, but it is located at the foot of the Belmont Pier, providing you with the perfect beach view dining experience. It is not just the long-time Long Beach restaurants that are shining, the recently opened Long Beach Tap House has quickly become one of the brunch hot spots near the beach. They offer up a very creative menu and a long list of local breweries on tap, with the lineup constantly changing so you never know what you mind find. When it comes to beer, Scholb Brewery is creating some of the best beer in all of Southern California and while it has the look of a tasting room, don’t be fooled, they have a menu to match the beer. From crispy pork belly to nutella ice cream, this is a great spot for the entire family.
