We've been here twice. Once during our trip in 2013, and again last week. Overall, they have very good food. I've never had anything bad here. The peel and eat shrimp is good. I got the shrimp scampi, and it was average (I wouldn't get it again), but it wasn't fabulous. Last year, I got the bucket of boat trash,... More

Best shrimp I ever had! Our first time discovering this restaurant with our 2 teenage daughters who do not like seafood...but we all ate well and had a great time. It was very entertaining to look around and see all the movie details and the staff is amazingly friendly. During our 45 minute wait for our table we browsed the... More

I have eaten here a few times because the view is great from the bar area. I always hope for a different outcome and I am always disappointed. I like to take friends to sit at the bar and look out over the water. It is nice to watch the boats come through the pass. However, the place has a... More

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
