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.

Four stars for the location.. The food was alright, nothing fancy just gimmicky. The service was good and the price not bad.

We loved all the food we had - the variety of shrimps were just wonderful and the Forrest Gump theme was quite engaging. Just a shame that we had a server who seemed to think that the best way of getting a tip from us was to moan that the previous party had left after paying $400 without giving her... More

Aside from the 'Forrest Gump' theme, this place reminded me of a Joe's Crab Shack. The atmosphere is good but the food was average and overpriced. Also almost all the drinks were at or above 10$ -- the only good thing about that was that we all got to keep our cups (which saved us from having to buy something... More

nothing to say except do not waste your time on frozen and frozen people..........The waitresses were clueless about the menu and the food was cold .....not to mention the drunks at the bar swearing while children were present......it's a food chain not a fresh seafood food chain...........

Tired concept. Tired food. Tired service. The drinks were tasteless and the general attitude was one of hopeless boredom.

Bubba Gump is a chain - so you get the same menu and same corporate feel as if you go to any one in the world. In Madeira Beach the staff are friendly and efficient, and the personal interactions with their silly general knowledge questions about Forrest Gump made it just a bit less soul-less than it could have been,...

Paid $260 for 5 dinners and one soup! It did however arrive hot and Mandi kept our drinks full--THANK GOODNESS! Little boy was in tears he had... More

Fun place to eat, especially if you're a fan of the movie. On a fairly busy night we were greeted several times and seated quickly. It was a little pricey, but we had a view of the pass and saw several dolphins throughout our meal. I couldn't have asked for anything more and our server Shalon was phenomenal at juggling... More

Service was a little slow...but we had a new waiter and you could tell he was a little nervous. But other than that the food was good! I would recommend the Coronarita!!! Yummo!!!
