Patrick’s Roadhouse a PCH Institution ( a Restaurant)
Since St Patrick’s Day is coming up in a few days. I thought I would showcase an institution on PCH. Most people think this Green Building is either in Pacific Palisades others think it is in Santa Monica, well, those who thought it is in Santa Monica CA are correct. Of course on the other side (north side) it is Pacific Palisades. Then again other people wonder what this Goudy Green Place is. Is it a Tourist Trap or is it a local good hang out.
Well if you want to eat an inexpensive Burger or Omelets and watch Celebrities, this is the place for you. Depends when you drop in, who might be at this Funky Roadside Eatery. President Bill Clinton has been here a couple of times on his way to Malibu. Sylvester Stallone has been seen frequently here. There was a time when Arnold Schwarzenegger could be seen every morning here. There is even a breakfast item he asked to put on the menu .I could go on and on with stories such as Sean Penn, Jonny Carson, but let me focus on this place.
Bill Fischler bought this place in 1973 and he decorated it with World War II memorabilia and other funky stuff. The place has Character which consists of random furniture for starts. After he passed away in 1997,his son Anthony took over and the tradition continues. It was touch and go around 2009 if the place would be closed or not, but the dispute with the Landlord was settled.
Check out this link to the Restaurant and specifically look at their Menu. If you want a novelty burger get the “Rockefeller” comes with caviar. If you into more the traditional burger just asks the waitress and she will guide you well. http://www.patricksroadhouse.info/ If you have 6 minutes to spare check out this clip from Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-inns and Dives‘fame http://youtu.be/wEO40hlvt2c
The locals love the place, it is not a Michelin Rated Restaurant, it is not on Zagat’s Best list either, nevertheless it is a good place to be near the beach and take care of your hunger at a reasonable price.
