You never know what you're going to get except good food, service and fun. We had to wait almost an hour, but that's what you are going to expect on a absolutely beautiful Sunday evening. This is not the only Bubba's we have eaten at over the years. We always enjoy the atmosphere and food. The place was packed so that slowed the service down a bit, but that's to be expected during spring break. The Santa Monica Pier was pretty packed as well. We enjoyed our meal. I had to get the drink in the glass that lights up like a rainbow. Our granddaughter will enjoy that. We both had a shrimp dish and it was good. We always enjoy Bubba's when vacationing in California.

This is our second visit to this restaurant and the meal was just as good. We brought our parents to this restaurant, and they enjoyed it just as much as the kids. Waitstaff friendly and helpful and the meals delicious!

Our whole experience here was fantastic; the food, service and choice we were very impressed. We didn't have to wait to long for a table to become available either; just enough time to have a wander along the pier!

If you like Forrest Gump the movie this is a must do. The restaurant is quaint, but it is a fast food turn you around sort of place. The food is all mainly fried which is great of you're hungry but not so great afterwards. Fries, onion strips, shrimp, crab, fish its all going on with some great trivia questions from the servers. And we got a free gift.

Went on a Monday at 4:30. Waitress and service was great and had a nice view but the food was gross. Ordered dish and chips. Fries were cold and fish was crispy on the outside but uncooked and grey on the inside.
