The Pier Burger is at the beginning of Santa Monica Pier. It does take out and has a dinning area as well. The food is all American. Mostly different types of burgers and fries, but it's all cooked to order so was very tasty! They can add bacon to all the food including ice cream for an extra 85c. The... More

I loved this place, I had the buger and hot dog and a pound of fries, all washed down with root beer soda, this is a must when you go to Santa Monica, the best burger in town

The Crew was fast and kind. There are lots of people, but changed enough fast. My favourite is fries but I really like the veggie burger there. My husband also like his menue. You have to try it!

You know whats its like - you visit somewhere once and its great, you return and its just not what you remember... Not here !! Everything was just as we remembered - super juicy burgers and great shakes. If you're on the pier you've got no excuse not to try one !!

We ate here and were fairly disappointed. The seats and tables were dirty. Full of other people's kids spilled ketchup and milkshakes.. The food was not great. It is a burger joint on a pier with an amusement park.. The shakes are pure corn syrup or at least tasted like it. We were hungry and needed something. We also wanted... More

We didn't expect much being on the pier, but this place had burgers that are on-par with In-n-Out burgers. The fries are even better, as they are cooked lightly and not greasy at all. Highly recommend this place if you are hungry for a good, quick burger on the pier.

Went here today while visiting the Santa Monica Pier and I ate here to calm down my appetite. The burger was decent but he fries were much better. It gets packed and hardly anywhere to sit down so be mindful of that.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood 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.
