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.

John's Pass Bubba Gump's Terrible!

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... read 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

We sat outside with the birds. The waitress was friendly and the food was good. They have a gift shop which was interesting.

We LOVE Bubba Gump's restaurants and have been to quite a few in many different cities (NYC - Times Square is the best!!!). This place was just average. They were not busy but the service was not what we are used to in Bubba Gump's. In NYC they are very crowded and the service is amazing there! Here - they... More

We waited for about an hour for the table and then another hour for the food, which was sub-par and cold. The place was too loud, too busy and not worth the trip.

This is located in John's Pass. Large restaurant, but can get very busy with long waits. The drinks and food are very good. Service can be slow, but staff is friendly.

We always enjoy visiting Bubba Gump restaurants on our travels. We enjoyed the shrimp combo, corona-ritas and great service! The place was very busy but the staff managed to provide prompt, friendly service!

45 minute wait to walk into the dining area only to find it half empty. $5 for a side salad, drown in dressing. Typical tourist trap!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here but found it a little pricey. The drinks were very good and the shrimp were grilled to perfection. We got to keep our Maison Jar glasses ( new ones actually) and spent a few extra dollars in the Gift shop. Our server (David) tested our Forrest Gump movie trivia which we... More
