Bubba Gumps

185 Boardwalk Place W, Treasure Island, FL 33708
Website
Improve this listing
Price range: $10 - $15
Cuisines: American
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
Description: Darling tourist stop for good seafood, fun drinks, special attention to children with cute menu and fun service. Theme is based on Forrest Gump movie. Gift shop is nice...I got a Bubba Gump hooded jacket because we ate on the outdoor patio overlooking the beach and it was so cold that day. Wind blows a breeze through, you might want to bring a jacket if you plan to eat outdoors on a cooler day. I love their seafood and their wait staff is great. Fun kids. There are flip signs on each table that say, "Run, Forrest, Run" if you are fine and don't need anything. If you want ANYTHING, flip it to "Stop, Forrest, Stop!" and the next server who passes your table will immediately provide whatever you need. We asked for a second drink and one of the kids needed crayons to color their puzzle sheet. A little pricey for a group but we are locals and really like it once in awhile. Often go there for a nice lunch with a friend. This place is quirky and makes a great vaca memory.

This was a casual restaurant and the waiter made us feel right at home immediately. He took great care of us and never left our glasses under half empty. Food was great, too! A fun atmosphere!

We arrived at about 9:00 pm, so it wasn't very busy. We were starved from traveling all day and the food arrived quickly. It was really tasty.

The food was good typical for a Bubba Gumps. The service was very good. We sat at table facing the water and it was a great view. We watched the dolphins while we ate. It was very busy, we had to wait about an hour, but there are plenty of things to do and see around Johns Pass that is... More

We had visited this location last year and decided to visit again this trip. We ate outdoors again this trip, enjoying the wonderful view of the inlet, draw bridge and dolphins swimming by. We had a shrimp cocktail each and a coke. Delicious as always. We love the BG quiz by the waitress Good location, great food, stop, don't run... More

The worst sea food for being on the gulf. Overpriced. To much of a tourist trap. The local restaurants on the boardwalk are much better.

Our visit didn't start well when no-one seemed interested in seating us and when we sat at the bar to wait they assumed we didn't want a table at all! When we eventually got a table (it wasn't even full) our waitress was great - quizzing us about Forrest Gump -, food was tasty and plentiful. Nice gimmick to take... More

The food was either under cooked or over cooked. In the party of 11 only one person was happy with their food.

We had a great meal and our sever Amanda from Maryland was a blast. Next time we go we will make sure to ask for her. Every thing she recommended was right on.
