This is still the best burger in the city. You need to go off hours to beat the crowds. Difficult to get a seat, but if you are lucky its worth the effort.

30min walk from Santa Monica Pier worth it. Pub, low light and nice atmosphere. Huge menu of beers, if you don't really know just ask for a recommendation. House's special office burger is delicious, real smoke/bbq taste and bourboun caramel onion!

We walked to the location from our VRBO condo down by the beach. Fantastic beer selection that included many local brews. We both got the burgers that were absolutely amazing. Great food and good people!

An OK beer selection. Very good (and very expensive) burgers. Their "fight for your seating" policy sucks beyond sucks. If I lived in area, which I don't, I wouldn't be returning.

Ideal stop for guys while their significant others go shopping. Large beer menu! Enjoyable! A couple suggestions... take the Brussels Sprouts off the menu and turn the music down so the guests can hold a conversation. Legendary place.

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
