Chez Jay Review

This saloon, near the Santa Monica Pier, has endured since 1959. With 10 tables, checkered tablecloths, and sawdust on the floor, it's a shabby but charming setting for inventive seafood fare and regular celebrity sightings.

    A Santa Monica Historical Landmark

    Legendary Chez Jay, est. 1959, is a Santa Monica Historical Landmark located on Ocean Avenue across from the Pier. Known for its steaks, fresh seafood, generous drinks and comfortable atmosphere, Chez Jay is one of the best celebrity hideaway taverns in all LA. With peanut shells on the floor and its famous jukebox playing, Chez Jay is a place to soak up stories, enjoy a great meal, and have a good time.
