We had breakfast in the morning, eggs Benedict was amazing and so was the omelette. Good food for a really good price and the views over the Beach are amazing. Can't fault at all. (With our strong Aussie accents) Clearly it was our first time to bubba gumps as we asked a lot of questions, the staff didn't explain the... More

When you walk onto the pier the first restaurant that you see is Bubba Gump, and if you like seafood then you need not look any further. Not a chain that I was aware of before arriving here and never having sen the film, I didn't really know what it was all about. So before going out in the evening... More

Like the restaurant name discloses, it is a shrimp company and a shrimp company it is. It has a very wide range of shrimp items from shrimp mac and cheese to deep fried shrimps to shrimp sandwiches and more. The restaurant is located right at the pier so it can't be missed! With a view of the beach, we were... More

I love going to Bubba's when I want some fried shrimp. I know it will taste the same no matter what Bubba's I go to and the view was nice at the Santa Monica Pier. Couldn't go wrong with that. Service was good and got a table pretty fast considering we were in a tourist area.

Why did I chose a restaurant this close to the Pier/tourist zone?? I should have known better. Food wasn't great, service was spotty, and the bill was over $100 for lunch for 4 of us (2 were kids)!! Very disappointed.

This was our first proper meal in America and we were a bit dissapointed. Service was good but food was boring and its not cheap. Didnt go back to a Buppa Gump after this.

I have had much better for much less price. This place is mainly designed to take tourist money instead of offering a good experience and meal. Menu was way overpriced for the amount of food you got. We could have eaten at a very nice steak house for what we paid to eat fast food made to look good but... More

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.
