The food was horrible!! I speak for all of those that don't like fish, this is not one of those place that you can go with fish lovers, and still find something that you can eat. Usually, fish restaurants can still make an okay chicken sandwich or stake, but every time I have eaten at Bubba Gump, they are horrible... More

I went to Bubba Gump's on Sunday night, the first clue that it wouldn't live up to expectations was we called half an hour ahead to get on the waiting list, then upon arrival, waited an additional 1 hour to get seated. What is the point of the call ahead waiting list if people that came after us were being... More

The decoration is all about Forrest Gump movie, very nice and funny. Shrimps in general are very spice and tasty, the lemonades were toooo sweet. The service was efficient, but the waitreess was so anxious, did not wait until I finish my dish and already offer dessert to my friend who had already finished. And without us asking, she brought...

I almost skipped this with thoughts that it would be a bit too touristy. So glad we stopped. Had a great server, a few great drinks, and wonderful meals. The view is great and they don't rush you back out, so you have time to relax and enjoy.

The first Bubba Gump that we visited was back in 2002 and we only came across another in Chicago. We love their bucket of peel and eat shrimp and the Bloody Mary's are excellent. Monterey Bay's BG didn't let us down. Our server provided the best service a person could ask for. The restaurant is on the ocean/bay and we... More

My teenage son and I decided to walk over to Bubba Gump Shrimp during our stay in Monterey. Big mistake! The hostess put us on a list and stated 15 to 20 minute wait. It was a Thursday evening and of course we did not see 15 to 20 minutes as a problem and didn't mind waiting. We hung out... More

We had dinner at Bubba Gump after our visit to the aquarium, largely due to convenience. We were seated quickly with a nice view of the bay. The service was friendly. The food was average and in line with what I expect from a typical chain restaurant.

Yep... I'm allergic to shrimp... so why go to Bubba Gump's you say. Well, they have great light up glasses the grand kids like. A fun though crowded atmosphere.. If you can get near the windows a great view. Both times we loved our servers very friendly and the food for a tourist chain is quite good. But they really... More
