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.

we ate dinner there

The food was great....the servers were excellent. Their system is a bit different, but it works well.

I love sitting on the deck overlooking Johns Pass while having a great meal. We eat here every year on vacation. I usually shy away from chain restaurants in favor of the local places but this one always measures up.

Peel and eat shrimp was delicious as were the drinks that we had. It was a great place to sit and relax after walking around and doing some shopping. French fries that came with the sandwich were not very good but the fish was ok. I would say the best thing about it was the atmosphere and the drinks and... More

First of all let me say that the restaurant decor is very imaginative and it had us amused as we read the many sayings and looked at the photos and memorabilia from Forest Gump. The waiting staff were quite nice and helpful with menu selection but service is s-l-o-w. My poor rating comes from the poor tasting margarita, mediocre food... More

Really slow service. Out of main appetizer. Drinks took forever, 2nd choice appetizer came AFTER meal. Waiter complained excessively about the kitchen. Busser almost took my face off clearing my plate without even asking if I was done or if she could take it for me... Manager tried to make it right but it was way too late, we were... More

We arrived around 8pm on a Friday night were seated near the railing not told there was inside seating which would have been appreciated on a very windy night. Waitress took our order table of two and was not seen of again until we were due our check and she then disappeared again. Ended up paying by waving down another... More

I've eaten at Bubba Gump restaurants in several cities and always have a great time. We were able to eat outside where they had misters that kept it comfortably cool on a hot day. The food and service is always top notch & I always have a great time when I find a Bubba Gump restaurant.

This is a fun place right at John's Pass. The food is good and the service is excellent and fun. You can eat inside or out on the deck with a view of the bridge and waterway. Obviously they have shrimp cooked a number of ways as well as other things. They have a large selection of beverages, though some... More

We were hungry but the menu didn't offer many tempting choices for a Southern themed restaurant. It was noisey and the waiter couldn't answer our questions about whether the fish was local, farm raised or where it came from. I wouldn't go back to one of cutesy places and the trivia questions were not necessary.

We had such a nice time at this restaurant. We were lucky to be seated quickly even there was a line and we had a nice family dinner. I enjoyed the gumbo soup and our waiter was great. He played Forrest gump trivia with our table and was attentive. I wish I could remember his name! Dinner was good, not... More
