Typical tourist we headed on down the the pier. We didn’t feel like a cheap overpriced tamale or hot dog so a bit confused about what to eat. Even Bubba Gump was not really an option. We probably could have gone up onto the Main...More

Fun spot on the pier, wished the AC was better. Quick bite and cold beer. Friendly service and perfect spot to walk on the pier after.

Came here during Memorial Week and there wasn't a wait and I can see why. Ordered fish and chips and I got a serving size to feed a toddler and it was tasteless. The only thing that made this restaurant a 3 was the service.

The caesar salad with tuna is the best thing out of this meal. The lobster roll is over $20 but it has no flavor and I've had better that cost much less. The clam chowder is ok nothing I would come back for.

Service was decent but for the number of people getting served you would think the food would be good. It was oily and tasteless. First time here and it will be the last for sure.

This is a nice little restaurant on Santa Monica Pier, with the option of seating inside or outside. The decor is quaint, and includes a daily Surf Report! I expected it to be expensive, but it was very reasonably priced. It's casual - you order...More

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

We are a family oriented seafood restaurant. As the longest running restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier, we value our city, locals and the many visitors who frequent our establishment. We offer a classic setting while providing a modern twist to casual seafood dining.We are committed to serving home-made, fresh seafood, fast. Although we have added a modern touch to the food and facility we pay tribute to the roots of the restaurant, maintaining its down-home, new-England style, crab shack setting. We are seafood on the Santa Monica Pier, a place where every generation can break-bread and create traditions in our timeless setting.
