My Chicken Caesar salad was outstanding and the view was beautiful! My husband loves his shrimp as well. Highly recommended!

My girlfriend and I went in for brunch on a Sunday morning. We were able to get beers at 10am. Our server, Christian, was very entertaining. Such a breath of fresh air so early in the morning.

Really unexpected that a chain had such good food. There was a bit of a wait for a table, but the service was really efficient. Great view of the beach and good fun.

Bubba Gump's is on the Santa Monica Pier and usually long lines on weekends. The food was meh, long wait for it to come out and nothing special. However, the Santa Monica Pier is worth a visit!

Food is good, specially if you love shrimp. The waiter comes with some funny question from the movie forest gump, the service was good. It is near to santa monica bay. You will get a view of bay if you get a window side table. Otherwise the space is very small.
