The famous Bubba Gump Shrimp based on the fantastic film Forrest Gump. Great atmosphere as there is memorabilia from the movie. Friendly staff and delicious food.

The food and service were fantastic however the beer was not. Would recommend to any seafood lover, if you order certain drinks you receive a souvenir glass

This was the best food we have possibly had, we visited the states last year, from Australia, and had this one our second day and I was hooked, shrimp tostadas were to die for. My fiancé doesn’t even like seafood normally, but he ate it and was in love, and now he’s a seafood addict :p our waitress was also awesome, he spoke to us about where we were from for ages, and checked on us often. Loved it so much we then had it in New York as well, it wasn’t as good as the Santa Monica one though!

This place is a must after a long day at the beach and a visit to the historic Santa Monica Pier. The day I went, the place was crowded with no seats available so I was lucky to snag three as people were leaving. While the service was less than stellar, the atmosphere and the beer tasted great. Bubba's won't let you down.

Good location on the pier but probably the worst fried shrimp in California. We were overwhelmed at the poor quality of the food. We left most of it and went to another place for lunch. A typical dairy queen has much better fried shrimp.
