Restaurants That Are Reopening In Long Beach

With its wide array of restaurants, Long Beach is a great spot for foodies. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many of them have been forced to close or offer takeout or delivery only. However, as restrictions are beginning to ease, many of the popular area restaurants are opening up with new safety measures in place. Take a look at some of the favorite spots that are open again!

Belmont Brewing Company

This casual brewpub is right on the beach near the Long Beach pier. It has a patio overlooking the ocean and is easily accessible by the bike path. They have a great variety of American food and their happy hour menu is a steal. Throughout the pandemic hey have been giving back to the community by bringing food to local firefighters.


Fuego is Hotel Maya’s restaurant that offers some of the best views in Long Beach. Their menu is limited right now, but don’t let that deter you! If anyone is looking for tacos and a margarita while looking out over the water, Fuego is the number one spot.

On the menu are all of the classic Italian dishes and pizzas fresh from their wood burning oven. The restaurant and its staff are authentic, community-oriented, and sure to make you feel right at home.

Lola’s Mexican Cuisine

This Long Beach institution has two locations and both are equally delicious. Their famous mole and a margarita are both must haves for any occasion, but if you’re craving brunch they offer it on Saturday and Sunday. On that menu you can find scrambles, brunch cocktails, and our favorite dish: french toast drizzled with Dulce de Leche, house whipped Mexican vanilla cream, berries. It comes with two scrambled eggs and a side of jalapeño bacon. Yum!

Potholder Cafe

The Potholder Cafe offers some of the best breakfast around at its three Long Beach locations and one Los Alamitos Location. Before social distancing rule, it was not uncommon to see a crowd of people waiting outside for their turn at a table and it’s not hard to see why. They serve any kind of scramble you can think of and also have healthier options, lunch options, and of course, some sweet stuff.

San Pedro Fish Market – Long Beach

This brand new restaurant is a new location from the same owners of the original San Pedro location. The original was named 5th Most Instagrammed restaurant in the US, and we think the Long Beach location could catch up to it. It is located right on the water of Alamitos Bay overlooking the boats. If you’re not taking a picture of the view, you’re probably taking a picture of your World Famous Shrimp Tray which includes grilled shrimp, sliced bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and potatoes in signature spices. 

The Breakfast Bar

Located on Atlantic Avenue, The Breakfast Bar has continued to be one of the top brunch spots in the city for years. Before the pandemic, they also announced that a second location would be opening soon. While the restaurant shut down operations for a while during the outbreak, they continued to be active while supporting local causes. Now, the original location is back up and running while allowing customers to practice social distancing.
