The meat in the burgers was not good quality and the food was bland. The guy behind the counter was a bit brisk, not too friendly.

Good prices, great food! On the pier. Hamburgers were great and so were the fries. Really nice people.

I grew up coming to Catalina and spent just about every day of vacation having lunch here. Our entire family and extended family's favorite was called the Rod's Combo. It was synonymous with Catalina, for us! It was a tasty and affordable hotdog/burger and we couldn't wait to sit on the beach and have one! Since the ownership has changed... More

Since the 40's a classic must stop on the pleasure pier. My tradition is stopping here, just off the boat, for a hamburger with mustard and ketchup only and a milk...to coat the belly for the day of adult beverages and seafood. Eric's is basically dive food which tastes better with each beer. Early morning breakfast burrito and coffee is... More

If you're on Catalina Island, and you've got a yen for buffalo burgers, then Eric's on the Pier is THE place to go. It's at the beginning of the pier, it's funky, and the food is good. Order your food then either eat it at the tables provided or take it with you.

We ended up grabbing some lunch at Erick's before our tour started as our main choice had a line out the door. We know why now. We ordered 2 of the bacon burgers and an order of fries and 2 sodas. The fries were very good, the burgers were only OK. These are Old Fashioned Burgers with only mustard, pickle... More

I've been going to Catalina for the last 30+ years. We always get a burger at Eric's. Just visited last week and couldn't leave without picking up some dinner for our boat ride home. Cheeseburgers are still THE BEST and the corn dogs are pretty awesome too! Skip the fries.
