Personally, my salmon was dry and it had little taste, everyone else's dishes where great. The service was on point, even there where servers that would stop by and check on us.

Set right on the entrance to Santa Monica Pier with stunning views over the beach and sea the place has a real buzz about it. We just popped in for a refreshing drink and had an amazing cocktail - can't remember the name but it had a tropical juices and slushy ice! For just a few dollars more you could have a your drink in a souvenir glass. This was brilliant value as we took home a quality large sized glass and a plastic glass that flashed at the bottom! GOOD FUN AND GOOD VALUE!

Had a great time at this restaurant, both in the evening and for breakfast during our stay. Staff were very accommodating, especially with one of our parties nut allergy, and service was outstanding. Quality of food was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our visits. Well positioned on pier, worth a visit.

A relaxed stroll along the pier will bring you to this prime location with great views over the beach. This isn't one of the many LA restaurants to 'see and be seen' but a great place to relax and have fun. The food was hot, tasty and we'll presented and priced OK. There's plenty of Forest Gump memorabilia around the place and the attentive staff are always ready to give you a quiz about the film. It's popular, so there will probably be a line but it moves fairly swiftly. Give it a try.

Atmosphere is ok, as it is on the pier with ocean front (sunset) views and Forrest Gump memorbelia. But.... windows were dirty, seafood was not fresh, food/beer was expensive, very very young waiters were more interested in partying with the young and very loud crowd at the next table. Never even offered to refill any of our drinks. Dropped food on a neighboring table, barely missed the customer. They comped the customer's appetizer, wow.
