Great outside Eating Area, Nice View of the Beach Area

Ate lunch here with a friend. We had an outside table with a nice view of the beach area. Road was between us, but not that bad of a distraction. Waiter was friendly. Food was good. Overall, I had a nice experience at this restaurant. I would eat here again

Typical chain restaurant but with a fun flare. Food was good and price was typical chain restaurant prices. Lots of options to eat.

I tend to avoid places like Bubba Gump Shrimp. A chain restaurant with a waterfront view is generally a red flag. But it was very good. Service was very professional and our server was charming. He didn't hesitate when we asked for recommendations. I got the accidental fish and shrimp. The fish was excellent and perfectly prepared.

Miami. Excellent food. But I'd take so much time to get the food on the table. The place it's so beautiful.

A meal at Bubba Gump has become a tradition for our family when visiting the Fort Lauderdale area - having eaten at this location more than a dozen times. Our meal this week will likely be our last. The hostess seemed to be having a hard time seating guests. Even with many outdoor tables open and available, it took nearly... More

Decided to stop in for dinner one evening and wish we would have kept walking. Ordered a fried fish, shrimp and fries platter and the fries were cold. Had them bring me new fries. The food tasted okay. Others in the group said their food was just okay. We were waited on as soon as we sat down, but it... More
