“Just OK”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We were out for the day in Santa Monica and looking for something we knew, it was OK. My husband and his buddies know the chain well and he was under impressed with the service. The food came fast and was OK, there are literally hundrreds of restaurants in the immediate area so you can do better.

“What a disappointment”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Came for the food and atmosphere and all i got was the smell of spilt beer on the floor, dirty feel all around. A few girls not in the best shape, and a 100's of TV screens, everyone just looking at them.
Thats the poorest hooters restaurant I have ever seen.

“Must have chicken wings.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The chicken wing choices are great. Had the BBQ wings and they were delicious. They take a photo of everyone and give you the postcard. Ofcourse you can buy the photo. But service a bit slow and halfway through we changed waiters as they changed shift. However still an enjoyable experience.

“Good food, Good atmosphere”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Its been a while since I have eaten at a hooters but the food is still very good with a great selection of burgers and wings. This branch has a good atmosphere with a friendly staff and loads of screen showing different sports. After 10pm is happy hour every night.

“Good food and drink”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

If you think that dressing attractive ladies up in tight fitting short, shorts, and even tighter-fitting low-cut tops is wrong as it objectifies women and if the name of the place alone hadn’t already put you off, then this is not the place for you. If however you consider said clothing to be a celebration of the female form, or you still feel it does objectify women but you are comfortable with that concept anyway, then this is something you might want to try.

I went in with my wife, having never been in one before (not sure if there are any in the UK) but being aware of the brand from popular culture. Yes, it may be a bit objectifying if you’re going to be all serious about it, but it is all tongue in cheek. Probably to my wife’s relief, there was a mixed crowd, groups of men, couples, young families and groups of girls too.

We were spoiled for choice for drinks, a great selection of beers on tap from local micro-breweries as well as the big brands. We ate dinner there too. A decent bar menu with barbeque, burgers etc. all reasonably priced The serving staff were all very pleasant and helpful. We did get a little worse for wear in there and when we were ready to go, the bouncer got us a taxi, more than you would get in a city centre bar in the UK!
