“Great spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We saw Bubba Gump restaurants all over on our travels across America. Glad we went to this one as the location is fantastic, overlooking the beach. A fun restaurant with good food and drinks, although the drinks are expensive. Highly recommended.

We had a quick lunch. The shrimp was very good, nice selection of beer and great beach atmosphere! You can't beat the location on the pier at Santa Monica

“in spite of the name someone managed to drag me in here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Noisy, over crowded and unremarkable in every way. I felt bad for the person who treated me to lunch here.

“LOVED THIS PLACE! What fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Everything about this experience was great. Drinks A+, Venue casual and comfortable, service was excellent, 5 adults thought it was perfection. Dessert OMG! There is something here for everyone. There are some really fantastic vegan options too. I find THAT incredible at a seafood place. Make a reservation and time it for a sunset. You will be so happy with this selection! Wish I could join u!

“Nice view, but more of a place to visit once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Pretty good food, and nice atmosphere. The service was good, and the food was pretty good as well. Not all that bad for being apart of a tourist attraction. Not a place that I would eat at more than once though.
