We got a Taco Tuesday deal of 4 fish or shrimp tacos with a 16oz beer for 13.99, great deal and the food was great too. Good location, on the water of the lagoon. Atmosphere was cool, there was a clown that walked through and made balloon animals for the kids. Everything was good but it was the exact same... More

So close to the hotel I stayed at, so much to do and very neat, food was great. More than just seafood so there is something for everyone, there is also a gift shop, and photo taking opportunities outside as well,

The food was good and eating out on the patio was great as well. We tried it because it was across the street from the motel. Try the strawberry lemon aid.

Since my last visit 3 years ago I can say that the place has definitely lowered their standards. The food was very average for the price that they charge. I did not feel it was worth it. The atmosphere is like a TGIF style with a lively feel. The servers were not to friendly and made me feel that they... More

We've eaten here many (maybe 6 or 8) times, and haven't had any issues in the past, but this time, the food was not as good as usual and the bottled water tasted like repackaged tap water. Also disappointed that we couldn't sit outside because they said that there was a bad odor in the bay.

The place was ok. Loved the movie Forest Gump so thought we'd check it out. Thought the food was a bit overpriced. Ying yang shrimp salad was yummy. Some fun things going on like groups of waiters singing while shaking cocktails and a balloon maker but all in all I wouldn't go back.

Ate at Bubba Gumps at the cancun Airport. Shrimp were very good. I thought it was very overpriced. Would eat somewhere else in the future. Service was very fast.

Me and our friends visited here to watch the NFL, have some cocktails and some wings. When purchasing certain cocktails, you got to keep the glass. Also we ordered a cocktail that had singing waiters bought to our table! This was a lot of fun. Plenty of memorabillia to look at. Be careful though, as the menus dont have prices... More
