  • To understand the Big Dean vibe, know it first opened in 1901, and only six owners have held it since then, often former customers. Its just that beloved by its clientele.
  • Hands down - the Best Burger on the Westside! :)
  • The best chicken Nachos of LIFE!!!!
  • great place to watch Football, drinks some beers, always a great time at Dean's!
  • A west-coast haven for displaced Giants fans! A hidden gem right under the pier, basically on the beach. Wear your jersey on Sunday and join in on the "New York Super Bowl Bound Giants!" chants.
  • Hotdog and chips is pretty good.
  • One of the best burgers in town
  • Cheap place where to eat awesome hamburgers in Santamonica
  • The BEST day drinking spot in Santa Monica. 22oz Primo bottles for $6- I'm in love :)
  • One of the few remaining original Santa Monica spots. Theyve done a good job preserving its soul and local appeal. Great for people watching, a cold beer, and good bar food! Exceptional staff!
  • fun outside bar below the pier

  • Thanks for cutting the burger in half! Much appreciated

  • The captains platter, the cheeseburgers, everything is great here. The atmosphere is eclectic and the drinks are great! Absolutely love this place.
  • Best corn dogs everrrrrr!
  • Added in September of 17, the back patio has a fresh brewed strait from the brewery tap of Bud Light. Its the best tasting tap beer Ive had outside of the beer during a brewery tour.
  • If your going to have more than one beer, ask to reuse your cup!
  • A David Byrne song and a Talking Heads song in one visit?! This must be the place!
