... better choices in John's Pass.

My wife and I stayed in Madeira Beach for the night, walked to John's pass. We live in far North Pinellas and get down this way once or twice a year. Gotta try Bubba Gumps once right? Average... average.. average. The service staff was really nice, a pleasure. I'm just so tired of writing reviews... read more

We both had shrimp dinners and both were excellent. The shrimp was fresh and perfectly cooked. The atmosphere is Forrest Gump movie memorabilia. They even have the movie playing on several large screen TVs around the restaurant.

Our waiter was terrific and the food was good. We got a Forrest Gump trivia quiz from our waiter. Great shrimp and good service.

I love to go to this restaurant especially when I have family visiting. Yes it is a little pricey but, it has great food, staff, and atmosphere. When the weather is nice the best place to sit is outside overlooking the water.

We went to Bubba Gump on Easter Sunday while we were on vacation. A friend recommend the restaurant and gave it rave reviews. Cute idea with the license plates "Run Forrest Run" = I'm OK, and "Stop Forrest Stop" = I need something. Problem for us was the manager took our order and somehow it got lost. Waited about 35...

It's great to put up a license plate for service, everyone stops, but it took 4 employees before my nephew got his honey mustard for his chicken strips. We all had finished our meals before he even started. Then the table next to us had a plate of food dropped onto their umbrella from the stairway. They still got hit.... More

good food but expensive. You are paying basically for the experience. Very good waitress. Sat outside and had a beautiful view of the water. Glad we went but probably won't go again

I was SHOCKED when I ordered the Net Catch as an appetizer that the shrimp were SO SMALL>..... you would think as a place with Shrimp in the title that the shrimp would be decent size and not the same size as what I used to fish with. Ordered crab legs as a meal for market price that came with... More

Took my mom and sister when they visited. Ate outside and watched the drawbridge and the jet skis. Waitress was very friendly and food was great as always. Tried the appetizer, fried mashed potato cakes and they were delicious and plentiful.

While traveling down the coast, decided to stop at Johns Pass for some lunch and shopping. We wanted to try Bubba Gump's since it had a nice view of the beach and the drawbridge. We were seated outside and it was very breezy on a hot day. Our waitress was very sweet and had great suggestions. I had a multi... More
