Late Lunch

Later in the day is the perfect time to go enjoy the restaurant otherwise on a weekend night, the wait is long, but worth it for some. Me, when I need to get food in my belly, I'm not great at waiting. Didn't like the system which is set up to move people in and out as they wait. A... read more

Shells restaurant used to be a favorite until it closed. About that time Bubba Gump's opened. Great menu, long wait during peak hours, but entertaining venue while you wait. The blackened shrimp pasta is a favorite. Try to visit here each time we're in town.

My entire family ate at Bubba Gump. The wait staff was very friendly. Our waitress played a game of trivia with our table with questions about the Forrest Gump movie. Very fun!! Cool atmosphere, loved all the signs on the wall. Very clean and food was excellent.

We visited Bubba Bump Shrimp Company in John's Pass on a Thursday night. We arrived a little after 6 p.m. and were told that it would be a 15 to 20 minute wait for an inside table. After 30 minutes, we deiced it was too late to try anywhere else and we would just stick it out. We were seated... More

Situated among the shops at St. Johns pass, Bubba Gump has excellent views, great food with equally amazing wait staff. Our server was attentive, charming and very friendly. Food was delicious. We had a table over looking the bay with ample views of the nearby dolphins.

Food is kinda "out of the freezer" Atmosphere is good with the Bubba Gump trivia. Kids love eating out of a boat so we're in.

Been to several Bubba Bumps , including this one every time we are in town. Service and food quality has went down. Miami location much better.

I think our waitress was new, because the service was horrible. The food was fine but certainly nothing I would write home about. The pricing was pretty high, but it's a tourist attraction so that is expected.

Stopped here for dinner, was happy with the food as I was familiar with it from visiting other Bubba Gump's. Service was average at best, wasn't really worth the 45 minute wait.
