The Pier Burger itself was excellent, with fresh salad and good bread. The fries were awesome. The ambiance very funfair and all-in-all a great all-American experience

The place is good and the food is delicious! It can be overcrowded though depending on the time of the day and when you visit! Nice experience overall!

When you are on the pier, need a coffee and the obvious Coffee Bean is closed this is the place. Not the most inspiring seating area but the huge coffee for $3 was very drinkable. Don't judge it by its looks!

Strolling up the pier considering what to eat, but not wanting to sit down. Assuming we'd be OK with a marginally edible greaseburger somewhere. Spotting the line at Pier Burger we gave it a shot. What we got was a nice, juicy burger on a soft, fresh bun with cheese, fresh lettuce & tomato, pickles & onions and sauce. A... More

Went with the family as our coach your dropped us off for just an hour and we needed to grab something quickly. We had low expectations but we're blown out of the water. The Pier Burger, Sea Bass burger and Chicken burger were all excellent and the home made sauce on the burgers delicious. Your meals are cooked fresh whilst... More

The burgers were decent but the location made up for that. Wonderful to be sitting outdoor on the pier. Recommended for a relaxing meal.

We ordered the fish sandwich, which was seabass...it was good. But 8.50 for just the sandwich. Also we ordered veggie burgers and they were flavorless mush on a bun. The fries and lemonade were good but also pricey. For a family sharing 2 lemonade drinks, 1 lb order of fries and each having a sandwich, we spent 40$. Perhaps it's... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
