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.

In a excellent spot on the pier, we had to wait but only about 10 mins. Staff seemed to be efficient and very helpful. Food was good quality and reasonable priced. Good view of the beach when sat downstairs. Would visit again.
