Food was not good. The shrimp did not seam fresh. Most of all their food is over-priced for the quality.

Kitschy atmosphere, but a good varied menu and decent pricing. Great place to go if you've got kids. We ordered fried chicken, jambalaya, and a shrimp dish (New Orleans, maybe?) - they were all very tasty and portions were decently sized. Of the places along the beach within walking distance of the hotels, this is one of the better ones.

The food was good but not great. They attract customers because of their name. The wine was decently priced. My husband had the boil which lacked seasoning but the shrimp were perfectly cooked. I had the spinach dip which was good but had way too much butter.

After eating at Bubba Gump in Orlando a couple of years ago, we were keen to try out the Ft Lauderdale branch, the service was very good, with very very friendly staff, the food was good but not "wow" great, all in all another good experience but not the best food we've ever had.

My family recently visited Bubba Gumps and Forest should be ashamed of this particular restaurant. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant had very few people eating. It took nearly 20 minutes for a wait staff member to come to our table and to top it off, their customer service was less than sub-par! The food was overpriced and... More

Food was great, servers were friendly. Don't let the "chain" tag keep you away - great location, great meal. Lt Dans shrimp meal was incredible. Shrimp were perfect and grilled sausage a nice compliment. Mashed potatoes (which I normally don't like) were excellent. Fish and chips were as close to what I had in London as I have ever had...

This was my 3rd visit to this restaurant, the food again was good no complaints there but was very put out with the waiter we had at the end of the meal. Nothing wrong with the service he provided until it came time to pay, I was a cash paying customer and left an appropriate tip for the Uk ,... More

We have seen the Bubba Gump restaurants many times during our vacations in the USA but never gone before this summer. We loved it! Great food, nice interior and fun to see all the stuff inspired from the Forrest Gump movie. I recommend the New Orleans shrimp❤️. We had to go back another evening to😃.

Food was average for tourist area restaurant. The views were nice of ocean, but parking is a little pricey next door through dirt alley $7.00. Monday no crowds so enjoyed quite lunch.
