Fun Casual Seafood Restaurant

Visited the location at CityWalk after visiting Universal Studios. It wasn't too busy so we got seated fairly quickly. Was given the usual Forest gump Trival and we passed with flying color. Staff was fun and energentic, and food was good as usual. My personal favorite is the coconut shrimp.

This was our first visit to Bubba Gump. My brother had recommended it and we were not disappointed. Service was friendly and attentive without being pushy. The food was very good and the portions were of a good size. Only downside was that the food came so quick that it almost felt like fast food. This made the place feel... More

First time at Bubba Gump. What a great place to re-live the movie Forrest Gump. Our waitress came up and asked us Forrest Gump trivia. Real fun. The food took a while to get to us because they were super busy but it was tasty! My sis and I had the Salmon and Veggies dish and it was very yummy... More

You have seen the movie, now eat the lunch. Alright it's touristy but then hey why not? Good tasty food in that American way of doing things. When they say have a nice day they mean it.

It is definitely a fun place to visit with plenty of good food choices. There's also drinks for the ones in your party that like a little alcohol beverage. It's fun and full of memorbilia of the Forrest Gump movie. Store is adjacent to the restaurant so you can pick ip some souvenirs for your friends or family back home.... More

We visited this restaurant whilst at Universal studios in LA. The food is the same as most you find in USA _ deep fried, and greasy. It was ok and we were hungry. The service is over the top and we didn't really appreciate the quiz about Forrest Gump shouted out by one of the staff. I guess this passes... More

We always visit Bubba Gump Shrimp Co went there is one close to where we are vacationing. The food is always great and the servers are fun. Our only complaint would be that this restaurant belongs to the Landry's Select Club. We were asked at Bubba's, McCormick and Schmidt and The Rainforest Cafe if we were member of this club... More
