Since the 40's a classic must stop on the pleasure pier. My tradition is stopping here, just off the boat, for a hamburger with mustard and ketchup only and a milk...to coat the belly for the day of adult beverages and seafood. Eric's is basically dive food which tastes better with each beer. Early morning breakfast burrito and coffee is... More

If you're on Catalina Island, and you've got a yen for buffalo burgers, then Eric's on the Pier is THE place to go. It's at the beginning of the pier, it's funky, and the food is good. Order your food then either eat it at the tables provided or take it with you.

We ended up grabbing some lunch at Erick's before our tour started as our main choice had a line out the door. We know why now. We ordered 2 of the bacon burgers and an order of fries and 2 sodas. The fries were very good, the burgers were only OK. These are Old Fashioned Burgers with only mustard, pickle... More

I've been going to Catalina for the last 30+ years. We always get a burger at Eric's. Just visited last week and couldn't leave without picking up some dinner for our boat ride home. Cheeseburgers are still THE BEST and the corn dogs are pretty awesome too! Skip the fries.

What happened? This spot was one of my favorite spots ever. Cold beer, nice workers, good food, fair prices and sites to watch. Well, the beer was not cold, no personality with the workers, food was just OK, prices have significantly increased, however, the site are still there to watch. I understand the place has been sold? I hope the... More

It is a unique spot to drink a beer and get a hamburger. But for the privilege of sitting on a stool and people watch, the prices are actually comical. Of course, like most fast food, a frozen patty is grilled and nestled between a couple of buns with onions, pickles and whatever. The beer is cold. But it is... More
