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.

Great location, Service and Atmosphere

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... read 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.

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

The location of this restaurant was great. There are other shops and restaurants surrounding it. Since this is a restaurant chain, you'd think their food would be of decent quality. Unfortunately, the food isn't that good. The decor is great, the location is great, but the food quality was a real let down.

Bubba 's is an OK seafood place very commercialized. Nothing here made me say "Great Seafood". There are so many better seafood places on near Madeira Beach. Nice decor set around the movie "Forrest Gump" but is a movie the reason to go to a seafood restaurant?

Inexpensive, good food. Sat outside, service took a bit longer but we enjoyed the wait while we watched the sun set

Food was good. Service was slow but the place is huge! Got a little cool out on the deck with the breeze. Take a jacket. Ok for a chain.

If you love the movie, it's a fantastic atmosphere. The service is excellent- expect to wait for awhile during peak times for a table. We have tired this place a few times, and the food just didn't stand out. It's average, we had the mussels, fish & chips and the chicken sandwich. Not bad, but not excellent. They do make... More

We enjoyed the atmosphere of of Bubba Gumps. We did have to wait a long time to be seated. However, there were many empty tables. Service was good and waiter was fabulous.
