Some Shellback history
The Shellback Tavern came to life as The
Knothole and then The Surf after World War II. Famous for their pizza and
reasonably priced drinks, the location became an instant hit on the beach
bar scene. The original owners were Don Hartsong and Ed Jamison. In 1973
local bartender Richard Swartz and his partner Jim Korshall purchased the
bar and renamed it the Shellback Tavern. Jim sold his interest to former
Hermosa councilman Jack Wood. Jack sold to local resident and patron Steve
Petroff in 1976. Steve and Richard remained partners until May of 2000.
Manhattan Beach native Bob Beverly took over ownership in 2000 and still
owns the Shellback today.
