La Marina is a great restaurant and bar to hang out. It is located 1/2 block from Dockweiler beach at the end of Culver. Lots of wedding receptions and parties are held there on the weekends. The food is good American food, chicken, steak, fish. The bar has lots of choices. Atmosphere is partylike. Prices are moderate.
No reservations are required, but if you have a big party it is recommended.
