Really Good Shellfish

Not a very romantic place...in fact, it is well lit and very loud. It is rather casual.

Prices aren't cheap but the lobster and the crab there are incredible.

Close to the Santa Moica Pier.

This is a Santa Monica staple located at the Pier with excellent service. Come for happy hour with $6 cocktails and discounted food items.

Where to Sit

Overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean, glassfront patio tables 105 and 106 are this seafood spot's most coveted.

Parking

Valet parking is a reasonable $5.50, but you can get three hours free in the city lot two blocks away at Colorado and Second.
