Rusty’s Surf Ranch Santa Monica Pier

Published on January 27, 2018


With a mix of food, music, and beer, Rusty’s Surf Ranch has been a go-to restaurant on the Santa Monica Pier since 1996. With a laid-back, casual atmosphere and ample outdoor seating, Rusty’s Santa Monica restaurant is the perfect place to relax for a bite to eat after—or during—a memorable day at the beach.

If you’re looking for places to eat on the Santa Monica Pier with unique decor, head inside Rusty’s to find a collection of 19 vintage surfboards hanging on the walls and ceiling. With boards dating back to the 1960s, the unique collection gives you a taste of Santa Monica’s traditional beach-bum culture.

Rusty’s is also a great place to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, or work parties.


Here are a few favorites that guests love:

  • BBQ Chicken Plate
