Looking for a casual restaurant and found it. A casual atmosphere with a quality menu. The fish & chips were good, but the little known secret is their baked chicken, some of the best I've tasted. Shrimp and pasta was our other favorite. Not to be missed, the key lime pie. Wow, it was great. Service was a highlight for... More

Pleased to say the BP Oysterette is still pulling in a decent crowd with its simple but successful mix of fresh seafood and fish dishes. Very professional service and an extremely well run kitchen which is open for inspection from the bar area. The food is excellent - cornmeal calamari is served with hot peppers, the fish tacos are delicious... More

Have been here in the past and had the Seafood Tower. The fish and shellfish is always fresh. The Oyster Rockefeller's are delicious. Can recommend the Fish & Chips as well as the Lobster Crab Louis Salad.

Service was a bit messy and meals came out of order, however the quality of the food made up for it. Lobster rolls to die for and mixed seafood was impressive and well-presented. We much enjoyed our visit and I would much prefer stopping here for lunch rather than attempting something similar on the pier.

Had early dinner with large group of friends. Were outside, enjoying the sunset, in a cozy area well protected from the wind and nicely heated. Spent three great hours, with several delicious bottles of rosé de Provence (les Valentines...). Everyone really enjoyed their food, fried mixed calamari/oyster/prwns, crab cake shared as apetizers. Main, everyone had fish and enjoyed, red trout,... More

Ate here on Easter with our son and 8 of his USC friends. The restaurant put us in a perfect part of the outdoor covered area where we could all chat and see each other at one table. The service was prompt, friendly and helpful. We ordered the lobster rolls, fish and chips, fish tacos, ahi sandwich, Mac and cheese,... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
