I love stopping into Bubba Gump on the pier, Great food and cheap prices, I love their salads, and big cold beers, on a hot summer beach day.

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

We didn't make a reservation, they took our names, told us it would be about a 30 min wait - We went away and came back after 30 mins and were taken to our table.
