First time

We had lunch at the Bubba Gump's on Cannery Row. There were 6 of us and we all had great food. I had the spicy Cajun chicken and it was excellent. Our waiter tested us on Forrest Gump trivia. Fun lun!

We decided to eat here on our way down from SF to LA. We got in just past the lunch hour rush and there was no wait to get seated. Our table for four was pretty tight up against others and a little more crowded than I would have preferred. Since the place was still crowded, we didn't wan to... More

Bubba Gump's was great! We really had a good time there. The food was really good/ affordable given the usually high Monterey prices at some of the fancier places. Our waiter Steven was awesome. We had a delicious Mendocino Brewing Co local wheat beer which was great. I would definitely eat there again. Great views too.

The restaurant and Service were great but I expected more from the food. I wasn't impressed with the food portions which we ordered a shrimp, fish, and fries combination which the shrimp were really small, and fish portion was small as well basically dry. I ordered the mahi fish and shrimp which was ok but nothing to get excited over.... More

So far We have been to San Fran, Monterey, Maui-HI, Puerto Vallarta-MX, Hong Kong. Food and drinks are really great but expect a wait time when you in pick hours. It's... More

I had been wanting to dine at this chain. We did the call ahead seating and then requested a window seat. They had us wait in the bar and had a table within 10 minutes. Biggest disappointment was they were out of steak which was not good news for my non-seafood family member. He settled for a burger. My daughter... More

Very limited options for vegetarians. Customizable options are also limited. The food was alright, the portions were very large though. The waitstaff were friendly and attentive.

We stayed next door at the Intercontinental which was perfect. We are at a few different spots but we thought we had better give it ago. It was extremely busy which normally is a good thing but the food was overpriced and tasteless. There are plenty of other places around that have better quality and a better price.

I'm a HUGE Bubba Gump Shrimp fan and always make sure to stop at one while on vacation as they don't have one near me. I was as always impressed with the food. It was fabulous. The restaurant is right on the water and while we ate we saw 2 otters and a whale! It was awesome. The service we... More
