I never expect to find really good placed on the beach that provide both properly cooked food, a good menu good service and decent portion size. Well, for a chain restaurant Bubba Gumps delivers in a big way! We had a good sampling of many of the menu items, Gumbo, Jambalaya, calamari, SHRIMP - of course, Fish and chips and... More

We always go to Bubba when we travel to Florida. Food is always good and service this time was okay. We actually ate here twice on this trip because we love the food that much. The mahi mahi is my favourite!

Went to this restaurant for dinner with my family while staying in Fort Lauderdale after a 6 day cruise. The waiters rock! The food was totally delish and plenty of it for the money. I had the shrimp, fish and fries meal, the shrimp hush puppies make you want to run out and play in traffic butt naked! Highly recommended!

I thought the atmosphere was cool; service was perfect and food was good. Four of us split the mac and cheese with shrimp for an app, and my husband had salmon for an entrée which was cooked perfectly and not dry. My son had a huge sampler of fish and chips, hushpuppies etc that he liked. It's worth a try

Enjoyed Bubba Gump twice while on vacation because my daughter enjoyed the food very much. Service was excellent and food was well prepared. Option of sitting outside looking at the beach was very nice.

Yes you have to stop here. The best meal of my whole trip to Fort Lauderdale. The myriad of stuff on the wall gave plenty to look at waiting for our food to arrive. Though I prefer separate parking areas since this is right across the street from the beach, public parking wasn't too far. The servers were terrific all... More

Horrible service!!! Was told it would be 5 minutes to be seated. Actually took 25-30 minutes. Only half the seats were being used. Server/waiter, Never refilled drinks. Waiter didn't do anything special for a tip so he didn't get one. The table next to us also did the same after their crappy service! He had the gull to walk up... More
