I love seafood and I enjoyed the food and atmosphere of this restaurant. If you are a fan of the movie forest gump you are going to have fun answering the questions of your waiters . The service was very friendly and fast. Good experience.

I have never been to one of these chain restaurants before and was very pleasantly surprised. You do never know what you're gonna get! The food was very good, drinks were wonderful and the waiter was beyond great! He interacted with us and quizzed us on the movie and made our experience fun. I would definitely visit this place again... More

I had never ate at Bubba Gumps before and during a 3 day break in Santa Monica ended up eating here twice. The food was fine, i avoided all the fried options and went with pasta both nights and it was tasty. Servers-Fergal and Miguel were terrific. Atmosphere can be very noisy but friendly and welcoming. Wait for a table... More

We love Bubba Gumps and go there whenever we are on vacation where there is one located. My teens (including my Gluten Free teenager) all love the food and drinks. Its pricey, we dropped $200 for the 4 of us including beverages but totally worth the splurge once in awhile. I love the "Bucket of Trash"!

Great Location on the beach/wharf - First time visiting Bubbas and I decided I would save it to be Santa Monica. Staff were friendly, service is prompt, food is great. Maybe a little overpriced but hey - thats what you expect when you go to a chain restaurant like this. Overall Great Experience.

Went on a Saturday, but dropped it at lunchtime trying to make reservation for 7pm that evening. They suggested I ring 30 mins before I arrived which I did. Worked well, as when I arrived there was a big queue, and they were telling everyone 1.5 -2 hours wait. We went straight to our seats. Food was good, a little... More

It is a fun place to go if you are on the Pier, and likely your best non fast food option. The menu is diverse and the staff energetic. The kids like the Run and Stop signs on the table which let the waitstaff know when they are needed. The fries are good. The cookie dessert is good (at least... More

There is every type of shrimp and flavor you can think of. I am a big fan of the Cajun shrimp. Our server was super friendly and very attentive. As long as you don't come to this place when there is a huge line, its a great choice.

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.
