Suprisingly Good

We stopped at the Navy Pier location for an early dinner. I was pleasantly suprised at variety of menu. Prices for all seafood similar to a Red Lobster pricing but quality of food in my opinion was superior. Actually compared burger prices to next door Harry Caray and Bubbas where a buck or two... read more

This place is very Forest Gump related. The food is named after characters and they have lisence plates for guests to use to flag down wokers (run forest, run & stop forest, stop). It was a bit pricey, but tastey.

Had a group of about 15. Had made reservations. We arrived precisely on time, which was 6:30pm on a week night. Took the host a bit to get our tables prepared. Service approach was interesting. We had up to 5 different individuals supporting us. Service times were average, but complicated as the team wasn't communicating and occasionally doubled up on... More

Hands down the best thing about this restaurant is the friendly staff and the fun atmosphere, especially if you are a big fan of Forrest Gump, which I am. From the very first person we encountered (a young man hosting the outside portion of the restaurant, I wish I had his name because he was smiling and extremely friendly, made... More

If you like the whole Forrest Gump atmosphere, you're in luck for this chain. While the food isn't bad, you are certainly not getting any value whatsoever. For the same money, you will end up with bigger or better portions elsewhere. Definitely overpriced here.

Food is good like any bubba gump. The atmosphere though was fantastic. Service great and a very short wait to get seated.

The Gump theme is cute. The food was good. Prices were on the high-side but okay. We had a large group of adults (8). When she brought out bill, our server informed us that she could only split the bill 3 ways. It was super awkward with people trying to come up with cash. Almost ruined the nice dinner. So... More

The confusion of the service was a little unsettling. You place the order with one person and then wait , wait, wait for your drinks to arrive. If I had not stated I want my drinks first, and refused to order my food until they came, I would have gotten my food before my drinks. The wait staff is very... More

We took a group of four kids here for lunch. I would do it again, even though I don' t like shrimp. They gave a very good kids menu, and a few non-shrimp entrees for adults. We ate outside at a picnic table....very pleasant on a nice day. The kids meal were served in paper boats...very cute....and our waiter was... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
