I have previously eaten at Bubba Gump restaurants and enjoyed it so I recommended this restaurant to my family and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic and made our dining experience very pleasurable. All the staff were very efficient and friendly but our server was called Raymon and he went above and beyond what was... More

We visited Bubba Gump Shrimp Co on Santa Monica Pier whilst touring the USA. We found the seafood, service, and location to be exceptional.

We enjoyed a really good time in there! The service was very friendly and helped us to find the right choices! Taste of the food was very delicious. Only the price is to high for what you get! We payed per couple 100 $ (2drinks each person)

We are relatively local but I expect this place is frequented by tourists. It was actually really good. Hubby had grilled fish and I had fish and chips. The service is also good. Everyone was super friendly.

This was a bucket list experience for me. Since watching the movie Forrest Gump I've always wanted to come here. The restaurant has embraced the movie to the full extend. It's fun, the foods good and don't worry it's not all just shrimp. You can get burgers and other items.

Friendly staff, good food, atmosphere and decor. Lower level has nice views of the beach and the ocean. Nice variety of shrimp dishes and cocktails. Will be my first stop on my next visit to Santa Monica.

Went here for the first time on Santa Monica pier. And really loved it ! We had Mac and cheese shrimp for starts and like a 'fish and chips' for main course. (although I wouldn't recommend fish for main and starter as we both found this a bit to much) The service was amazing! In fact just at the end... 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.
