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.

Good Food... Service was so-so

Food was pretty good. They were pushing drinks but it was early so we declined and stuck with water. The food was very good; however, the service was average. Our server was nice but we waited 15 minutes after we were done eating to get our check. He never came to see if we needed more drinks or... read more

My wife and I visited this restaurant while staying the weekend. The food and service were great. The waitress even came and found me when I left my credit card on the table. I was very impressed. We will be back.

Brian is a great waiter. I would suggest getting him. We decided he needed to be our waiter at all restaurants. I highly recommend the Jumbalaya. You will not regret it.

Love their shrimp! A little expensive but worth it. Thought it was cool how they ask questions to their customers about the movie "Forest Gump"

First I must start out by saying I love shrimp! We were in the area to go parasailing and made a day of it for Fathers Day. This was my first visit to Johns Pass Village. Very nice location. During a visit to NY we saw Bubba Gumps but did not go, as soon as we saw it here it... More

Out of all the seafood restaurants around this area this is by far not the best. The service to very slow and the food is just average as for every Bubba Gumps if you're big on seafood I suggest looking into other seafood places that will get you better quality for a lower price. In conclusion Bubba Gumps is just... More

I took my son and his girlfriend before they moved back to Colorado. I didn't know that the Pirate Fest was going on. I was so happy that we got to walk around and experience that. I had to take them to Bubba Gump because we have always liked it there when we go to St. Pete. We were so... More

I went with my family to Bubba Gumps when at John's Pass. We don't have one at our home so we usually go whenever we are in a town that has this chain. OK, so it is a chain restaurant. However, the ambiance is great, particularly if you like the movie," Forest Gump". The food is always excellent. Service was... More

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.
