Fun but can be messy and noisy

My first visit to a Bubba Gump and I had been warned that the portion sizes in this tourist orientated eatery were on the large size. My fellow diners seemed to think this was a personal challenge and opted for the most belly busting combinations of shrimp and ribs, while I held back and felt much... read more

This one is the worst of all ! Except it is close to ocean on the pier and to be honest you will not enjoy it !! Food is average and it is so busy that service is not on top To avoid for locals. Much better around !

However, DO NOT expect to find ANYTHING on the menu remotely healthy at ALL. We often go to hang at the bar and talk to nice people, but I would not go to eat there if I was starving to death. The music, people and atmosphere are fun though, including all the nice folks who work there.

My mouth waters every time I think of Bubba Gumps! I wish they would open up on the beaches in Australia. Definitely will go back when in LA.

Had a quick bite to eat with family and must say I was impressed. I was expecting it to be all brushed up for the tourist with silly prices and poor quality food. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were quick to help and no was never an answer when we asked for assistance. Our server was brilliant and I'm... 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.
