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.

Our first experience with Bubba Gump Shrimp Co was a good one. Food was very good but overpriced...best tasting Tilapia I have ever had. Service was good and atmosphere was loud but still enjoyable. Lots of stuff to see for first time visitors. We enjoyed it and would go back again.

Beautiful outdoor bar next to the bridge/inlet. I would'nt eat between the outside bar and restaurant, too loud with the fans in summertime, but they are nice seats.

If you like good food stay away from it! The soup was cold and the main dish was pathetic! I and my wife ordered Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi (Fish and shrimp) priced at $17.99, to our disappointment both dishes were also cold and poor presented, the taste was mediocre to be the specialty of the house. My son ordered breaded... More

One of our party was a Forest Gump fanatic. She never had heard about the restaurant change. Her enthusiasm and wonder made the whole visit so memorable. Drinks and foods were wonderful. Reall enjoyed it.

Went late Friday night, around 9:15. There was a wait for outside, so we chose inside. Very very loud place. Ordered appetizer Spinach Dip, ok. My husband ordered the jambalaya, he enjoyed it. I have a seafood allergy, and they went out of their way to make sure my meal, my server, and manager knew of my request. I ordered... More
