Up until now I've had nothing but good experience at restaurants in the Landry's chain. However, that string of good fortune ended at Bubba Gump. I will say that the staff is very friendly and helpful. Sadly the kitchen gives them little support, especially when working with special diets, such as vegetarian. The best thing I could find, with the... More

I was at the Chicago location a few years ago, but was at Bubba Gump in Monterey, California in March. There are good portions, and the setting is beautiful, on the Monterey Bay coastline.

My colleague and I ate here when we stopped on the way to the airport. The restaurant was at the front of Navy Pier and has a great atmosphere with lots of families. The food was good with lots of different shrimp meals and grills. I had the trio of two different types of shrimp and mahi which was excellent.... More

We stopped in on Saturday night and the wait was about 15 minutes which was great. Everyone enjoyed their food choices. The service was superb as once you signal you wanted help, any server nearest you responded. It was a great atmosphere with people of all ages and yes, I would definitely eat there again

We went there after a long long walking around Chicago - it was very refreshing and nice there. We had various kinds of shrimp - all of them were excellent. Service was great and fast, staff was funny and very welcoming. Nice atmosphere. Broad choice of beers. A nice suprise was a beer glass that my husband received as a... More

Food was good, service was great. This is nothing special other than unique atmosphere related to the movie Forrest Gump. It was a good dining experience.

Went there as a matter of opportunity. Day was cold and rainy, did the tourist thing with the Ferris wheel etc. It was nearby. Shrimp weren't bad but the gumbo was a tragedy. Nothing was bad, it's just that nothing was to rave about either. With so many outstanding places to eat in Chicago, why use one of your opportunities... More

In addition to taking like 12 years to get our food, I ordered a burger well done and the one served to me was so pink it was practically grazing on the farm. 😒

What a great experience! We loved it! The wait staff really know their stuff and quiz diners on their "Forrest" knowledge. Nice movie memorabilia around the restaurant as well. Definately worth a trip!
