Lots of Shrimp

It's a little gimmicky, but the food is great and the service excellent. I had a meal-sized salad and a beer. The waiter asked us lots of trivia questions about Forrest Gump, which we enjoyed.

Bubba's is a chain restaurant that is located mostly in tourist areas in the US and even out of the country in several locations. It is popular for a reason - great atmosphere, service, and food. We have been to quite a few Bubba Gumps in many different locations and the restaurants are very consistent. We enjoy going to Bubba's... More

Good lunch, I had gumbo, the wife had chowder, we both had appetizers. More of a wait than we were originally told, but we got a table near a window looking out on Monterey Bay. Worth it. Bubba Gumps IS Kitschy

Visited after the aquarium, 5 minutes walk from there. We were given a window seat, which was perfect. You can see the kelp fields outside, which is a favourite place for the local sea otters. Food very tasty, and not horrendously expensive!

We will return in the day time so I can experience the beautiful ocean. The food is delicious and plentiful. The servers very pleasant and fun.

I was a bit concerned of going into chain restaurants, however I had an excellent experience. I ordered seafood cooked into a white wine broth, I really recommend for those that love seafood as me!

Fun, casual, and good food for the whole family. Great seafood and good selections for non fish lovers. Iconic décor and fun movie trivia make this an unusual dining experience.

Enjoyed dinner here in a very casual atmosphere with a great view. As you can imagine, the specialty is shrimp, and there's a great selection of shrimp meals, as well as some non seafood meals for that one person in your party that doesn't like seafood. Overall, the food was good, the staff friendly, and fun to talk with. Our... More

Overpriced. Had to pay to park just to eat there. The food is greasy. You do not get a lot for the money. The drinks are absurdly over priced. We had to wait in line for a table. I do not know why anyone would want to eat there. Maybe like us it was their first time. It is my... More
