“Restaurant On The Pier With Great Sunset View”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We ate at the Bubba Gump restaurant on our last trip to Los Angeles. It was a short walk from our hotel in Santa Monica, and we wanted to eat at a restaurant on the pier. The food was good ... typical Bubba Gump seafood, and the service was also good. However, the highlight of this restaurant is its location on the pier with a great view of Santa Monica Beach and the hills of Malibu. If at all possible try to eat here in the late afternoon because the view of the sunsets is awesome.

After a short wait outside which was good, we were taken down stairs to be seated on the beach level which was good, then came to crap of the very young service people trying to engage in a comedy show that wasn't very good! the food was good, the beer was better

“Excellent!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We ate at a couple of Bubba Gumps while on holiday and the one at Santa Monica was fantastic. The food was excellent,the atmosphere great and the location on the pier was awesome. The staff were zooming around as it was a very busy place but they took our orders and we didn't wait long for our meals. Great work to all staff, had a wonderful time on the pier. Cheers. Make sure you take a photo on the chair where Gumps shoes are...very funny.

“Just like the film!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Having seen Buppa Gump at Universal City walk we just had to try it at Santa Monica. A very busy restaurant. We got a table downstairs on the beach part. Excellent service and great food. Loved the "Run Forrest Run" and "Stop Forrest Stop" signs for our servers. Friendly and good value.

“All Good”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Expect a short wait outside before you are called. Good food, good choices, wont be quiet and you are not going to pay food court prices. Great place for everyone of all ages. My problem when I hit the pier is eat now or build up an appetite.
