Went to Bubba Gump's for the experience and left slightly disappointed. My husband's shrimps were pallitable but nothing too exciting. I not being a fish eater had a very limited menu and eventually opted for Caesar salad which was pretty nice. A pint of beer in a Bubba Gump glass which you got to take home was $12 before tax...

Great food at a reasonable price. The kids loved their specialty non-alcoholic drinks and the trivia quiz that our waitress was asking.

Sat by a window overlooking the ocean. Had a specialty drink called a "Coraniqa" a combo of beer and a marguirita. Interesting and good...with a take home plastic glass. Our entrees were very good but all were grilled not deep fried. Not much you can do with a fried shrimp. Server was very good and entertaining. All and all a... More

We thought that a close restaurant to the ocean with such a high amount of customers would have a moderate quality of fish/food! But it was worse! We took the big plates with different shrimps and a double bowl of shrimps. Everything tasted similar, it was just fried stuff, with lots of oil and fat. Way too expensive (!!!!!!!) BUT... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant on the pier is really fun with a Forrest Gump feel. The customer service was outstanding. The food however, was mediocre at best especially since it's pretty pricey.

Re-visited after enjoying our meal here the first time we came to Santa Monica 6 years ago. Service was friendly and food was good / average (probably not great value), but nothing really stood out as being fabulous or even above average this time. Keep in mind that this is a tourist trap and is in no way way fine... More

First time at a Bubba Gump and it didn't disappoint. Myself not a big lover of seafood took my partner while on holiday. Service was great, little bit of a quiz while waiting for food. Food arrived and we tucked in. The grin on my partners face was from ear to ear. Couple of cocktails later we paid and picked... More

Came here during our LA stay. Really tasty food and polite staff all be it slightly pricey but yes I would definitely visit again. Only thing I'd say is that they don't have a very good waiting system for a table. We gave our number and said it was a 30 minute wait, 50 minutes later still no text so... More

Stopped in to do some shopping , but had to have some shrimps. Great place to eat with family and friends. A person can't go wrong with any food choice, everything looks and smells great. A must see place for gifts and foods.

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.
