OMG! Its hard to screw up BBQ Chicken. But Rustys wins the prize for the worst BBQ Chicken Ive ever had.
For our first visit to Rustys, my wife ordered the BBQ Chicken with a salad. A safe, simple order, right?

We went to Rusty's as a group and had a blast. The food was excellent, the band was teriffic, and we had a great time. I can't wait to go back again as the drinks were reasonably priced. A nice time was had by all.

I've been going to Rustys for several years and the food is as good as you can get in Santa Monica or on the entire westside of L.A. for a moderately priced restaurant. It is on the Santa Monica pier and is a fun place to hangout, day or

Have to say I haven't found much better food and especially combinations of foods and drinks to satisfy every appetite from young to old. Love the cuisine and the atmosphere. A delightful and satisfying experience.

Good ocean view from front patio. I really liked the fresh ahi tuna salad and my friend had clam chowder in a bread bowl. My favorite thing was these yummy coconut desserts. One was like a coconut sorbet in a coconut shell and the other

This place is a complete joke. Not only does it serve the worst drinks I've ever had, but their chicken made me sick. It's dirty, cramped, and its open mic night was painfully boring and disorganized. Mitch of "my name is in lights" pseudo

Pros: Proximity to the water

Cons: An all-around bad experience

This place is definitely a beach shack of a bar, but it's shabby nature definitely adds to the appeal. Has a full bar and pretty decent acts that come through on the weekends. If you're around the pier it's worth stopping it to see what's

Normally I do not write reviews for restaurants, especially anywhere near Los Angeles...however I had a great time at Rusty's this past Friday night. A few friends and I were out on the pier to grab some food, decided to try Rusty's out.

Pros: Great sound/ live music, great food, younger crowd the night I was there!

Cons: not the cheapest drinks in town, but they were strong and to the point!

Great location, right on the Santa Monica Pier. Some good nights, some slow. Summer is always jammin'! Monday night, karaoke. Stop in and get a drink from Diego - a great bartender! Food is better than average.

This place has never been my all time favorite but every once in awhile there's a good crowd and I'll pop in for a drink. It's virtually the only place to on the pier late night. The best part is that the bartenders are really awesome here and one of the only reasons why I bother to go. Mondays are a pretty good night to check them out and summers are always decent.

If your in Santa Monica, you gotta go to Rusty's. Great Menu, Giant Cowabunga Burgers with every topping you like. Lobster Bisque, shrimp cocktail, calamari, and clams, all their seafood is fresh and delicious. Have a huge frozen margarita

Rusty's is typical of any restaurant located in a touristy area - overpriced with okay American food. I've tried several things on the menu and have yet to find anything to write home about. That said, if you're a bloody mary fan, they

Cons: Over priced and mediocre food

This place is always fun to go to for dinner. And it has the best location right on the pier. Also, I must say I have had the same waitress a couple times and she inspires us to want to come back again and again!! The waitress's name is

Rusty's has the best bar on the pier, which I realize isn't saying all that much. But it can be a lot of fun. There's the back patio area, which is overlooks the ocean and is more private than the front area. Just inside, there's a pool
