Our first time at Bubba Gumps will be our last. One of our entrees was not submitted to the kitchen, so we waited 20+ minutes. The waiter seemed more interested in impressing us with his Forest Gump trivia knowledge than with getting us our food. He became conspicuously absent after we inquired into the missing/late food. Overall, the food was... More

I have been to this particular location several times in the past and this was by far the worst experience we had. We took advantage of their "call 30 minutes in advance" and they put you on the waiting list. When we got to the restaurant, it was not packed, there were tables available and we still had to wait...

Staff where very friendly, food was OK and clearly they have a chain going that is working as the place was busy but purely on the quality of food for the cost I have had much better in the USA. OK for a 1 off experience with the family but not somewhere I would want to visit again in a... More

I live in Baltimore, and we have a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. at our Inner Harbor, but had been turned off by the "chain" theme. However .. once at Cannery Row, it turned out to be my favorite restaurant, as we went not just once, but two times in 5 days. The entrance is so inviting - outside, casual, fun... More

I've always found that Bubba Gumps comes up with excellent food. The setting is beautiful overlooking the water, the staff were very attentive but not always hovering, the decoration makes you read the funny little signs & have a giggle. The tilapia fish in Jenny's Catch was delicious. It was so good that we went back for our second night... More

The food here is great. I was not blown away with the service, or very pleased about how long we had to wait, but they were very busy, so that comes with it sometimes. Overall a good experience and I would go back again.

Okay, yes, this is a very touristy restaurant. But it is a fun, lively place and the food IS good. I've eaten here many times with my family and will again. It isn't superb seafood, but it is good seafood and coupled with the view and the atmosphere, it is a nice dining experience.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was pretty good. Nice view from the restaurant of the ocean. We have eaten at Bubba Gump's from coast to coast and the service and food have been consistent from restaurant to restaurant. It is in a fun location on Cannery Row in Monterey. We would definitely go back if... More

Menu almost had too many choices, but out waiter was so helpful in helping us make our selection. Food is great, and it was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the weather and scenery. The store at the front of the restaurant has a wonderful selection of "Gump" merchandise.
