'Shrimp' of this size would be called 'King Prawns' in England. I was amazed by the huge portion of big, sweet, delicious prawns in various coatings - crispy coconut, tempura batter, crunchy crumb, as well as plain grilled - which were delivered to our table with some delicious dipping sauces and fries. This was called 'Shrimper's Heaven' and it was... More

On the Santa Monica Pier, iconic sea food restaurant that reminds the Forrest Gump Movie. Perfect location, choose your shrimps flavor and taste the Californian sea. Staff very gently (special mention to Nate, he serve us with the incredible smile! Turn back to Italy and visit us, asap!). Inside store. Recommended!!

Ok.....I know eating on the Santa Monica Pier is just about the most 'touristy' thing you can do but this place was great. My family of 6 have eaten at 'Gumps' in FL so we knew what to expect. The service was excellent the views were amazing. Every person got something different off the menu and it all was great.

We have dined at many Bubba Gump's and you know what to expect. All the menu items are the same high quality seafood and that's great. What makes this different is the view. It is located on the pier so try to get a table on the patio even if you have to wait a little while. It's nice to... More

We enjoyed our first experience at bubba gump. It was a fun place ... very busy but good with the kids. Good food and good service. Recommend if you need a family friendly place near the pier.

We've had shrimp and seafood in many of these around the states and this one is as normal as part of the chain as the rest we have been to. It's good fare all in all, reasonable prices and service that is attentive.

What a location! Right on Santa Monica pier, and very popular. We were shown downstairs to beach level. The seafood was fantastic, but the staff were a little stretched keeping the patrons orders coming. All in all, it was a nice night and well priced. Tip - the servings are quite large so if you aren't a big eater aSK... 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.
