Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The service couldn't have been better. The food was good... nothing special.

You know what to expect when you go to Bubba Gump's. The one on the Santa Pier is not different. Good drinks for all, non-alcoholic cool lemonade for kids; new beer/margarita for mom. On that day, we had biked to Marina Del Rey, but weren't that hungry, so my kids settled for the kids meal, which were plentiful, and I... More

The location on the pier and the play off the movie is fun. The food is rather mediocre. Not bad, it's just not what you go here for.

A good place to eat at the pier. Food was prepared quickly and there are a lot of drinks to choose from.

My friend and I had a great experience last night at BubbaGump. The atmosphere is really fun and all the staff were lovely and efficient. I ordered the pear and berry salad and it was delicious! The serving was big, it wasn't covered in oil and it was so so yummy!! And very reasonably priced! Highly recommend!

Set right on the entrance to Santa Monica Pier with stunning views over the beach and sea the place has a real buzz about it. We just popped in for a refreshing drink and had an amazing cocktail - can't remember the name but it had a tropical juices and slushy ice! For just a few dollars more you could... More
