Good food poor service

This was our second visit to a Bubba Gump. The concept is great. On arrival we were met by four staff members all with their backs towards the entrance , they were all chatting between themselves so did not notice us arrive. When realising they had customers we were then seated and told who our... read more

This the 3rd location have eaten at. Gatlinburg and LaHaina being the other 2. Loved the shrimp trio (or whatever it's called)! My wife always loves the mac/cheese. Right on the waterway. Am surprised this location still exists as it competes with fresh local seafood (their's is not locally obtained).

The food here is always great. The service is quick and the food always arrives hot. The theme of Forrest Gump is charming.

Very good food served in some interesting surroundings. Wife had the Grouper, I had the ribs, both very good and good value. Quick and attentive service made for a nice meal experience.

We went here for lunch on a Saturday. The service was great, sometimes service can be slow when a place is not too busy, but this service was quick and friendly. I had the clam chowder and my godson had the seafood special and we had the drink specials which were quite good. Our server checked out the shop for... More

Mediocre at best...our server Cody nice, but food for two (fried shrimp and one berry salad took 1 hour). Very few other parties in restaurant for fried shrimp to take that long and then they served the salad with no dressing..I'd say "run forest run"!

We had lunch here and had one up and one down. I enjoyed my Jamblaya but my wife did not care for her stuffed shrimp. It was bland and tasteless. Service was good and the location is good also..

We recently had lunch here, and had to wait 30 minutes for our food! The restaurant was not crowded and as I looked around, no one else had any food, either. When my Shrimp Mac & Cheese FINALLY arrived, it only had about six small shrimp in it and lots of bread crumbs on top. Very disappointing!

Fun place especially for those who remember the Tom Hanks flick! The servers asked us trivia questions which made the time go fast between ordering and serving the food. Good variety of shrimp dishes and well as other seafood items. Good family place with a shop selling movie memorabilia.

The server was pushing us to begin ordering as soon as we sat down. The drinks were good, but like the food, everything was overpriced. The jambalaya was excellent, but the other couples ordered of fish and chips looked very dry and overcooked. It was fun watching the birds trying to steal food from the tables. I doubt that we'll...
