Good lunch spot when visiting the Aquarium of the Pacific

Old Fashioned New England Clam Chowder had a good flavor, but was a little watery. A more robust roux needs to be used to help thicken the chowder. It also needs be served hotter. The chowder was lukewarm at best. Rating: 3/5 Shrimper's Net Catch is peel n' eat shrimp steamed in beer with a... read more

My wife and I arrived at the restaurant that was semi busy. We were able to be seated on the patio right away. We were seated for approximately 15 mins and not a waiter or waitress said a word to us. We noticed plenty passing by. We noticed plenty of them chatting with each other. We had enough and decided... More

Got seated promptly. Friendly waiter. Fast service on the food. Shrimp linguine was excellent. We parked in the garage next door and fortunately Bubba validated for 90 minutes - otherwise it would have been $15.00 to park.

All of the Forrest Gump memorabilia makes Bubba Gump a must visit for a family meal. We had lots of fun waiting for our food! The staff is well trained in making guests feel comfortable and taken care of. Surprisingly, the merchandise they sell is reasonable, too. The food was average, but the atmosphere is the reason for the visit!

This is a nice restaurant to visit when in Long Beach. The food is a little pricey but the atmosphere is good. There's lots of memorabilia of Forrest Gump the movie and they have the movie playing on the screen in the restaurant. The service was okay I had to ask my waiter 4 time for additional sides of tartar... More

I thought it was a fun place, busy but good service! The food was wonderful, spicy & great! We went to the Bubba Gumps in Santa Monica and loved the location on the pier! It was fun!

The friendly staff makes this a great restaurant for a family celebration. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers while everyone in our party arrived. Most everyone ordered shrimp! The Shrimpers Heaven was wonderful. Also good reviews on the fish tacos.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. never disappoints. Excellent mango and strawberry lemonade and other tropical alcoholic drinks. We each has a different shrimp dish, and we were all very happy. Ended with a great dessert of the chocolate chip cookie sundae. Excellent food, excellent service. Great location with lots to do like the Aquarium of the Pacific, boat tours, etc.
