(Visited 03/2015): Simmzyís is located in the heart of Manhattan Beach a few blocks from the pier on Manhattan Beach Blvd. Street parking and pay garages are nearby.

The exterior is open on the street side, serving as a patio of sorts. Inside a narrow passageway opens to the bar on the right side with some additional seating beyond. There are a couple of chalkboards listing the beers on tap, and the tap handles are visible against a backsplash made of pennies. Wooden ceilings and hanging growler-lights.

Simmzyís has over 20 beers on tap from breweries like Russian River, Ballast Point, Golden Road and Ninkasi.

Service at the bar on a weekday evening was good despite being very busy.

This place is known for their burgers and the one I had for dinner was enjoyable.

Overall this is a fun place to visit in MB with good food and a solid beer list.

Visited July 2012 on RBSG eve.

Itís obvious that youíre in a beach town when you see the small two story buildings all crammed together and surrounded by people in flip flops and fancy clothes. That doesnít detract from the quality of the place though. The service may have been a bit slow but the tap line up was pretty good and they had both some really local stuff as well as some of the nationally distributed stuff. I got to try the Sam Adams Sahti as well as the Strand batch 100. We didnt eat anything but it looks like a nice place to have a meal, especially sitting outside on the patio.

Nice amount of taps (though some quite foul stuff) and decent prices. Didnít try the food. Big plus for Blind Pig on tap.

Cool little place not far from the water. Nice tap list, mostly local stuff, but a few imports and other US craft beers. Prices arenít bad for the beach cities. Food looked good, but didnít have any. Burgers seemed to be a popular choice. Bar staff was fairly accommodating and friendly. I would recommend sitting out on the patio area if possible.

A nice small place on MB. The selection is nice. They have 20 or so taps with a nice variety of common ales. I had a Duvel Green and my wife had a Chimay Blue. Both of us had burgers which were really good. It is tiny and a little loud at times, but definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

A tiny spot right in the middle of downtown Manhattan Beach. You will be put on a waiting list if youíre there to each, but itís worth the wait. The menu is pretty limited but they have great burgers and sandwiches and their blue cheese fries are unreal. The beer selection isnít huge but it boasts some great brews. They have a respectable wine selection as well.

simmzys is about 3 miles from the house so iíve been there a few times ; ) a beautiful location (with some partial ocean views from the patio) on manhattan beach blvd right next to highland. pretty interior but small indoor/outdoor area. it gets crowded quickly. a small bar near the entrance which is parked directly in front of 25 taps which are rotational. on last visit, they had a nice line-up of: old viscosity, stone 13th, hophead red, old rasputin, chimay, among others. menu is sparce with some odd offerings but the burger is good. service was decent. beer is a bit more expensive here due to itís manhattan beach location. pints of higher octane rating ales can be as steep as $9.00 a pint. always nice to see a more beercentric plave open up, though.
