On the Santa Monica pier a nice little restaurant with a patio. You need to order at the counter and it will be served at your table. All the food was very tasty and at reasonable prices for the location. Good salad, burger and mussels.

Aside from the filthy sticky picnic table the food was rather mediocre and extremely overpriced. Big mistake and I sure wished I trusted my gut and left before ordering. I had fish and chips and my colleague had Rock crab. He liked his crab but...More

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

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.
