Food was amazing, environment was fun, staff were great. Very busy when we arrived and we didn't book a table, but we didn't have to wait more then 10mins for a table.

Although we were attracted to this by reputation and by the sign post it lacked Lustre. Very impersonal .it's like they rest on thier laurels that the customers will just keep rolling in. Suppose I can say iv been to a hubba bubby Restaurant. The one in San Francisco looked heaps better

My family came all the way from Australa and was looking forward to eating at this restaurant. The food was horrible and very very oily. This food is production and very expensive. They are too concerned about getting as much people in and out and not focussing on looking after the people that are in. We had 6 different people... More

We have to eat at a Bubba Gump's whenever we encounter a new location, just a family tradition. We got an Irish waitress who talked so fast I was dizzy but she was so friendly you had to like her. The food was good: standard for the chain. We were seated in a corner like naughty children so didn't get... More

The location on the pier is excellent, still its a little anonymous. Could have been more "light up". But, you'll have no problem finding it. Had to wait for a little while to get table, but at such a popular place, I would say its expected. Food was like any other Bubba, not better not worse. You know what you're... More

Like any popular restaurant on pier in a bury period, yes you will have to wait if you go at peak time. We went at 5.30 and manage to get a seat straight away, but by the time we had finished eating, it was busy. It's a family restaurant, with family food, good price, good fun drinks and cups to...

We first came here in 2012. Since then we have been to bubba gumps in New York, Miami, San Francisco. The Santa Monica restaurant is still one of the tops for us. Food quality good, staff very helpful and friendly, and a top location. Who could complain at the view over the Santa Monica beach? Really great!

Twenty minute wait for a table, another 20 minutes to take our drink order so we ordered our food at the same time. About half an hour later the food arrived. I had veggie and shrimp kabobs. Veggies consisted of onion, tomato and squash. I think there were about six shrimp, not very big. It was served on a bed... More

I found myself here whilst en route from Vancouver to Fiji with an afternoon to kill. A taxi from the airport (very extravagant) to Santa Monica and a walk on the pier. This restaurant overlooks the beach so finding a quiet corner I ordered. The blood orange margherita was amazing and the large crab stuffed prawns a very tasty treat... More
