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.

We had a fun time there...Our waiter came and asked us trivia questions about the movie "Forest Gump" all during our dinning experience. The three of us ordered mixed/ frozen drinks that was suppose to have alcohol in them...but to be honest if there was alcohol in those drinks it was an extremely small amount (I don't rarely drink, so...

Nice food, although can't remember what I had, so not that memorable. Good service. Didn't need the quiz the waitress have us

Thank goodness we didn't listen to reviews! My boyfriend and I ate here right before the dinner rush at about 5pm and we couldn't have been more pleased! Food was great, service was great, and the atmosphere was great! Highly recommended! Get the hush puppies! :-)

There was a line so we had to wait. I didn't enjoy the misters and fans blowing at me all the time. We sat outside near the bar which was a mistake when there are middle aged drunk women at the bar. Blech! The food was not all that plentiful and the steak was thin, dry and not a good... More

We have eaten at 2 other locations and found them much nicer. This one was crowded and messy. My clam chowder was ice cold and had to be returned to the kitchen to be reheated. Our service was good but the whole evening paled to the other locations.
