A must visit for us every time we are in Monterey. A fun place to hang out. We requested a table by the window overlooking the bay and sure enough we got the table with a little bit of wait though. The margarita drinks are good and the lighted tall glass are always entertaining to watch. I usually get the... More

They don't have reservations but you can call ahead 30min before you arrive to put name on list. We did this and only waited about 10 min on Fri night. Great water views. Good service---when food comes up if your waiter isn't there another brings your food. I think they pool tips so you never had to wait for anything.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal at this restaurant! The food was spectacular, I would highly recommend the shrimp basket, go all the way and get the bigger size! The decor of the restaurant is a lot of fun too and they have a hilarious system for catching your waiter's attention. On every table is a placard which says "Run Forrest Run"... More

We love Bubba Gumps and normally go when there is one where we are at. This one was very loud and had really no waiting area to sit while we had to wait over 40 min for our table when we were told 15 min..

Ask for the the table by the sea. The usual quick bubba meals with free entertainment all around you. Never dull. Basic meals but fun. Great service and location.

Grilled shrimp was fantastic. Great atmosphere and food. Fantastic place for kids. The gift shop was a great add on for those that loved the Forest Gump movie.

After visiting the Aquarium I was pretty hungry and walking by the Cannery Row just mentioned the sign of my favorite Bubba Gump. Everything is just great, thanks!

The food was ok, we have eaten at several different Bubba Gump's. The food is good, but nothing great. It is a good place to take the family. The silly trivia questions from the waiters are tired though.

In our travels we have seen several Bubba Gump restaurants but we had never stopped in. Since our son and grandsons were with us we decided to give it a try. We had a nice table overlooking the water and our waitress was great, quizzing us on movie facts. I might say that we did very well on the quiz.... More
