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.

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.

Love the view, the value and the service. Got see see Dolphins play in the Bay and boats pass as we enjoyed our meals. We obviously liked it because we went here 3 times in a week.

Best place to view the sunset. Good service, super cocktails - food ranked 3 - need more options than fried food.

This place has a lot of potential- fantastic location, great menu, good views. Unfortunately, it's a bit inconsistent. It's difficult to find your way up to the entrance as the signage is poorly placed, unclear, and not lit. Some of the food was finger-lickin' good and cooked to perfection, while other dishes were undercooked or flat-out cold by the time... More

It was very busy & crowded, but that's no excuse for the bad food & service. My wife's grilled shrimp salad had raw shrimp on top. When she complained the waiter said lots of people like them like that rather than fully cooked. I ordered a cheeseburger. The waiter made a point of asking me if I had said cheeseburger... More

As for all Bubba Gumps' everywhere, it was enjoyable, lively and friendly. Excellent service, delicious drinks and shrimp anyway you like 'em! If you love chain restaurants, you'll be very happy here. The food was good, as expected, and I would certainly eat here again. The atmosphere/views are lovely.

I agree with most of these reviews, they really didn't care if you were there or not, the service is slow and the food was awful!! Over priced for lunch and just awful. And if that wasn't disappointing enough (I had been 4 years getting here), at the end of our lunch the waitress is reaching across me to get... More
