We walked in and immediately felt very welcome, it actually looked like people enjoyed their job. One small thing I noticed that the floor is spotless, there was crumbs on our table and instead of our server wiping it on the floor he put it in his pocket. The peel shrimp is a must have.

If you know Bubba Gump at Pier 39, San Francisco, so you'll understand me. The quality of food is lower than San Francisco. I didn't recommend it.

I'm pretty easy to please when it... More

Fun restaurant on Santa Monica pier, shrimp was delicious and service great considering how busy the place was. Large menu and plenty of seating on two floors nice looking out over the ocean.

Our service was amazing even though she was obviously very busy. The food was average, although Mamma's southern fried chicken and mashed potatoes were ridiculously good. Mac n cheese was delicious too. Cones of shrimp - tempura, coconut fried, with sauces was average.

Pasta with shrimp was delicious. The Margarita was good too and I brought a glass and a baseball ball to my home.
