Always a fun place for lunch or dinner, perfect location right on the water, large menu , good food, great service & average prices. Great for the kids as well. Hush Pups & the Shrimp Bucket are always a favourite. Some of the nicest staff of any other restaurants. No complaints at all.

While we enjoyed our lunch here last year, this year's experience convinced us not to go back. The service is friendly, but a bit annoying with all of the trivia questions about the movie. My grandson ordered chicken nuggets that were mostly batter and way too crunchy. I had the spicy Cajun shrimp which had a nice creamy sauce around... More

We ate mahi mahi & southern fried chicken with popcorn shrimp as starter. Chicken good, fish ok but not fresh. We went at 730 on a Sunday night, didn't have to wait for a table. The server Fabrice was great about an alcoholic beverage which we ordered by mistake that my wife couldn't drink, and very helpful with our 11wk... More

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant has a great location close to the Monterey Bay Aquarium with a picture perfect view of the bay. The restaurant is huge. Seating capacity must be in the hundreds. We waited 45 minutes for a table. Once seated, we saw many empty tables filled with dirty dishes ready to be cleared. We felt irritated... More

My husband and I came across the country on vacation and since it was his birthday we planned months in advance to eat here. The host guy at the entrance told us to go find a seat in the bar. We did, no seats. Went back and asked him if we could eat outside . There were plenty of tables.... More

We loved the movie, but the restaurant is just okay. The wait was long, and the food was just average. The service was good at first, but then they just forgot we were there until it was time to bring the bill. Forget about refills on the drinks, even water. It is fun to say we ate there, but that's... More

The place is busy as heck, so arrive early or expect a wait. Once you wait and get called, expect to wait inside again. The food was good, the steamed shellfish pot is tasty & good value considering you can pay $50+ for seafood. The staff seems to be scrambling everywhere and rushed (there's only like 100 staff running around....).... More

Best part of my meal was the beer (from Carmel Valley Brewing), The meal was unmemorable-in fact, I can not remember what I ordered. Honestly, I had no intention of eating here but my travel buddy insisted (Gump fan), it's super touristy, and the food is generic and mediocre. I gave it threes stars because the service was good, views... More

We eat here almost every time we are in Monterey. All three of my picky kids have favorites on the kids' menu and love the little paper boats that their food arrives in. I have liked all of the seafood I have tried here (especially the coconut shrimp) and my husband likes the chicken Caesar salad. Good drinks too for... More
