About Our Restaurant

Some things are still worth discovering

Searching for a restaurant that offers the finest in cuisine, service, value and southern style?
Look no further than Aunt Kizzy’s Back Porch in Marina Del Rey. We have brought that down-home,
regional cooking of the Old South to Marina Del Rey. You’ll be artfully served by our enthusiastic staff
in the friendliest environment on the West Coast. Our staff is experienced in the old-fashioned art of hospitality.

Ambience, Class and Style
Aunt Kizzy’s uses only the freshest produce, meats, fish and poultry to prepare the best home-style meals. Our fine Southern cooking is based on treasured family recipes collected from our relatives and friends. We enjoy preparing this food for people who have neither the time nor the training to cook a true Southern meal. We especially appeal to people who have discerning taste, a desire for quality food and a yearning for an atmosphere of warmth and charm.

The old-fashioned, home-style food includes entrees such as smothered pork chops, short ribs, chicken & dumplings, meatloaf, jambalaya and chicken-fried steak. The latest addition to our menu is oxtail. Of course, we also have catfish n’ hush puppies, meatloaf, and fried chicken. Side dishes include a very good potato salad, the cheesiest macaroni and cheese you’ve ever tasted, black-eyed peas, collard greens, candied yams, and corn bread dressing.

Be sure to save room for our popular desserts like peach cobbler, sweet potato pie, and coconut-pineapple cake. Wash it all down with our award-winning lemonade. And don’t forget about Sunday brunch. If you miss the Sunday picnic on the lawn after church, Aunt Kizzy’s is the next best thing. For breakfast, we have buttermilk biscuits, waffles, grits, eggs, sausage and bacon. For lunch, we have finger-lickin’ BBQ beef ribs and potato salad, along with other delicious brunch items. We serve mouthwatering food and lots of it.

Come hungry – our portions are ample. Big meals for big appetites. Nothing exotic, just authentic. Now that you know a little more about us, come on down to Aunt Kizzy’s, where Southern dignity is alive and well and where we feed your body, mind, and spirit. Come on in and enjoy.

Southern home-cooked food at its best served in the restaurant, take out, or catered for those special parties.

A specialty Gift Boutique with one of a kind items handcrafted by various artists is available on weekends.
