We had enjoyed the aquarium and were very hungry after our visit. Bubba Gump was very close so we gave it a shot. We don't like chain restaurants on vacation but this was a good choice! Food was great and kids loved the jello and boats their food came in. Would recommend!

We love the atmosphere at this restaurant but the food is just okay. Haven't had a bad meal but nothing really outstanding either and it is usually very crowded with lots of noise.

It's not the best seafood in Monterey but it's good seafood and quick service for a chain. We went there with our one year old and he was entertain by all the bdays. Don't take your kid there is they don't like loud places. We loved the shrimp bucket app. Cajun flavor!

Spent an enjoyable evening the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co with friends, the food was great and the service even better. A lively fun team of servers took good care to make sure our evening was very enjoyable. One of my friends said t=that his steaks one of the best he's had! praise indeed.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food here. While I have had better seafood, this was not bad for a chain establishment. Also, the staff will quiz you about the movie Forrest Gump, so watch it again before you visit.

Alright, I admit it. I had to check it out but I wasn't impressed. I did go back a second time just to be fair but not much had changed. The place is loud, dark and too touristy. The food is average or below and the prices are way to high for what you get. The wait for seating was... More

It's a kitschy chain restaurant in an area with many good established independent restaurant so while I only ever ate there when others wanted to, I did figure out pretty quick that you can't go wrong with the coconut shrimp and the mango salsa served with it.
