Pleasantly surprised by our great dining experience!

We started off with their appetizer combo with all different goodies and it was great. I then had the shrimp Po Boy and it was fantastic. They... read more

I didn't have high expectations when I ducked into this place to get out of the heat. The service was pretty slow and required a sign system of "Run Forest Run" or "Stay Forest Stay" (if you didn't need assistance). The specialty drinks were way over priced. The shrimp and pear salad was okay. There were uncleared tables all around... More

We had peel and eat Cajun shrimp and a shrimp po boy. The po boy was excellent and the Cajun shrimp not so much. The peel and eat shrimp tasted like oil and water. We do don't eat them and I requested that they be comp'd from our check. I would eat there again tho.

You can eat at a chain restaurant anywhere. Bubba Gump is ok food - similar to Red Lobster. But you can eat there at many cities in the U.S. Instead, enjoy one of Ft Lauderdale's unique local restaurants.

After searching around the Fort Lauderdale Beach area for a seafood establishment, we selected Bubba Gump seeing how we wanted a more casual dinner. With fair prices and a large selection of various fruits of the sea, there was something there for everyone (including the younger members of our family who hadn't quite yet developed the taste for seafood). Although... More

Ive eaten here several times and it a typical chain place with a great location. The location is everything. Right on a1a, it doesnt get much better. The Ft. Lauderdale Beach is right there and so convenient. The food is a paltry assortment of over cooked and fried prior frozen goods. The beer is cold and the drinks are decent...way... More

If you enjoyed the movie Forrest Gump, then you'll be in love with the atmosphere here. Just good country style food. Menu is wide in variety and the service is good for a chain. The wait was long but it was a Friday night too. The bar area was nice to wait in and bar service was also quick. Food... More

We recently ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co while on vacation in Fort Lauderdale. My son loves the shrimp shack mack n cheese appetizer. He will eat the entire serving and then spend the next two hours complaining about how over full he is. I had the coconut shrimp which was also very good. We also ate there the last... More

I'm a local and decided I wanted to try this place with my best friends who were visiting. The place is cute inside. If you sit outside you have a view of the ocean, don't sit near the waterfall if there is any wind you will get wet. The waitress service was great we were waiting a long time for... More
