Improve this listing
Price range: $10 - $15
Cuisines: American
Dining options: Reservations, Late Night
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.

Excellent view, food, staff and atmosphere. Loved the food, ate right on the water, the best time to go is early evening and listen to the music, people watch and watch the sunset.

We ordered a shrimp combo, which had tempura, coconut & peel & eat shrimp on it. The fried ones were very good, but the peel & eat had a slimy, briny quality that we didn't care for. The service was super quick, and the waiter friendly & fun.

We went to treasure Island two years ago and ate at Bubba Gumps and it was the best i ever had. I had the shrimp and it came in a little pail which i thought was neat. I got me one of their nice big glasses for a souvenier and we are going back there in August and will get... More

The wait was normal, the gift shop was overpriced. It's your typical chan restaurant, over priced and bad set up. They did have lots of stuff from the movie but it's hidden by seating so you can't get good pictures.

Unless you are a huge fan of the movie and want to go here for the sake of nostalgia, I would skip it. There was nothing special about the food & it was overpriced in relation to its quality. The wait tends to be long. The location is great and our server was great, but you can find much better... More

This was our second time coming here and probably our last. Not that the food and service isn't good it's just too expensive for what you get. For a family of 4 we spent over $100 and we walked away feeling like it was just ok. Don't get me wrong the #1 reason we went there is because our kids... More

My family is not big into seafood but I love to on occasion. So you can understand this is our first trip to Bubba. The waiter was great and made us feel at home. Although there isn't a lot of non-seafood items they allowed my family to amend the menu to fit their needs. I had the trash can and... More
