Seafood Platter -- Yum!

We shared the seafood platter, and for us, it was plenty. The shrimp was delicious; fries were tasty; fish was good. Our waitress was fun but inattentive -- she took my husband's soft drink glass for a refill and forgot to bring it back. Then she disappeared -- much too long until we could flag... read more

Service is great, but the food is just ok and really expensive. Too many tables and hard to move around and like I said the food is too expensive for what you get, way too expensive.

On a recommendation we enjoyed an average meal at an average price over a business lunch. Worth the visit !

A classic stop for any Forrest Gump fan with a gorgeous view. There are great choices for the kids and fun drinks for adults. Enjoy a view of the bay and the movie memorabilia throughout the restaurant. Incredible service every time I stop in.

I was really surprised how good this place was. I let my wife pick our dinner spot, and to my dismay she picked here. With so many great eating places in Monterey, this seemed too touristy. It is always busy when we go to Monterey. We had a late dinner. both our dinners were outstanding. The atmosphere was fun and... More

I made a last minute call to have 10 folks to have dinner and informed that some attendees would really appreciate a view of the bay. Showed up within the hour and we had an area right by the window with a great view. Drew, server, was fantastic as was the whole staff. Food came out hot and many hands... More

Okay it's a tourist attraction that is hard to pass by. Wait for table twice as long as predicted. Super noisy busy place in mid afternoon. Appreciated gluten free options, very few but appreciated. Average service and food. 1 salad, 1 small entrée, 2 drinks $55, steep!

I was pleased with my meal. The view from the restaurant is amazing. I had the trio= Mahi Mahi,Shrimp, and veggie skewer. The kids meals were large and the desserts were very nice. I liked the Bubba Gump memborbelia through out the restaurant. I am going to have to watch the movie again. So in conclusion I would say RUN... More

I love the movie Forrest Gump, so it is fun to watch the waitperson try to stump me with their trivia. I had the app sampler for my main, with spinach artichoke dip, fried shrimp and hush puppies, peel and eat shrimp and hot wings. Good stuff.

Went there as we were walking on the Pier. Ordered the Gumbo....absolutely the worst I have ever had. Was very watery and tasted like no one in the kitchen really cared about the product they were putting out. A little pricy, other items like fried shrimp were VERY average. Atmosphere is fun, but the food is just disappointing. Definitely my... More
