Good food on the water - more room than most restaurants!

We have eaten at this restaurant several times. The staff is always friendly and the food is good. There are lots of tables so usually shorter wait times than other restaurants in Cannery Row. Many tables have a great view as well as the outside dining patio. Lots of seafood, but burgers and... read more

We visited Bubba Gump's twice on our CA vacation. Great menu although a bit more commercialized than I typically prefer. But when you're out of towners and don't want to take a chance on a completely unknown place Bubba Gump's is a great option for seafood. They made us feel at home each visit.

Had visited the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co restaurant in Miami, FL, so was familiar with the fare. Our coastal tour stopped here for lunch and we received a nice meal (fried shrimp with the fixings) served efficiently for a large group, wine included. Compared to some pricey places nearby, their value was pretty good, too. Nice setting right by the... More

Food here is certainly not exactly what you are paying for. The atmosphere is really what this place is all about. Our food was just okay. But teenagers loved it. Very lively. Kind of loud. We had a 45 minute wait for a table but were okay with it. Service was outstanding.

The staff were very friendly. The restaurant was pretty quiet when we visited and smelt quite strongly of cleaning fluid - not very appetising but reassuringly clean. The food was nice and the service friendly. It's reasonably priced and is probably great fun for families and groups.

I recently visited Monterey and fell in love with it's charm. I opted to eat at this Bubba already aware that the good is generally exactly what you expect. This particular restaurant was outstanding, the staff were so accommodating despite it being busy (it's always busy on a nice day) and we had a nice seat outside where the service... More

Fun atmosphere, quick service. Good for large groups, children, families and small parties. The theme from the movie Forest Gump is continued throughout the restaurant in many hilarious ways.

As a family of four and one young child of three years we decided to take in the atmosphere of Bubba Gump and weren't disappointed. It was lively (and noisy - but all such establishments are, aren't they?), full of fun, colour and friendly helpful staff. The theme is excellent and the food very passable - we all had different...

This is the first time we had been here since our son was born. He is now 20 months. Went to put my name on the list. Was told about 45 minutes, which is what I expected. And then this gentlemen who works there said he had a low top table available right now if I wanted to sit in... More
