We arrived and was told there would be a 30 minute wait, so sat down at the bar and ordered two draft beers, 20 minutes later we was called, the barman gave me my bill for the two beers which amounted to over $20 when I questioned the amount was told that I could keep the glasses saying Bubba Gumps,...

This is a neat place to eat. The food is good and we especially liked the trivia from the Forest Gump movie. The kids liked it here also.

Enjoyed our food and the wait staff was very friendly. We had the gumbo and shrimp salad and of course the seafood hush puppies. We left full.

We came for dinner. Got a pic at the bench while waiting a few mins for our table. The seafood hush puppies good, shell fish steam pot good and got the Georgia peach tea mixed drink with the glass you keep. This will be a place we go back to again!!!

Me and my family were out for a day of fun and wanted to stop in and try Bubba Gump Shrimp. That was a terrible choice. The food was terrible although the service was wonderful. I orderd the Chicken cordon blu and the bread was so hard that I had to take it off just to eat the tiny piece... More

After a long day at the beach we looked forward to a nice dinner, and we found out that Bubba Gump was not the place to find it. Extremely slow service with waiters awkwardly asking trivia questions to make you forget how long you're waiting for your expensive and cruddy meal. Boyfriend ordered crab and wasn't brought the cracking tool,... More

Food and service were great! The view was amazing from our outside table. We could see dolphins and ships going in and out, which the kids loved. I loved being in an atmosphere in which everything related to Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies, but it was a definite tourist trap. It was a bit more expensive than I... More

It is a little awkward to reach as you have to take an elevator to the 3rd floor of a parking garage to get there. However, it was well worth it as the food was excellent and the staff were friendly and quick. We liked the atmosphere and there were great views of the gulf from where we were sitting.... More

We took the kids on Monday, June 16 about three in the afternoon. You have to pay to park, $2 an hour. No validation. Was promptly seated and ordered food. When it came, the wife and kids food was fine, however my skewers were cold. Mentioned it to the waiter who brought me a hot side. I knew I should... More

My only complaint would be no where to sit while we waited for table. Other than that the menu had a nice selection. Food serviced quickly. Server was great! I would highly recommend a visit. Trivia with the check was a fun surprise.
