Just like a chain restaurant and I have been to other Bubba Gumps and this was the worst. Cold food and no taste at all to supposedly new orleans style shrimp. Won't be back. Is not worth the $$

The Bubba Gumps at Navy Pier was a very convenient place to eat when enjoying the attractions nearby. The atmosphere was great, especially the Forrest Gump impersonator that walked around, complete with suitcase and a box of chocolates. Our waitress was excellent and our order was accurate. It was a little pricey, although the food was very good, but you're... More

This is by far the worst experience we had in Chicago. We arrived with 5 adults and 1 child and asked for a high chair for our 16 month old. We were seated at a table and told to park our stroller in the corner. The hostess, who turned out to be the manager, walked away without bringing a high... More

We visited here for dinner after seeing that the outside patio was very busy, We did not wait long to get a seat but after that we were not approached by any server for 20 mins until we had to stop one who was walking past our table. The front of house staff were too busy flirting with their friends... More

This establishment is more for the tourist than the diner in you. The food is ok, nothing special. Shrimp is shrimp. The drinks are pricey. The service is good but depending on the time of day you go, expect to wait a while to be seated. My advice is to visit the gift shop, buy a t-shirt and skip the... More

We've been to four Bubba Gump's and Chicago's was terrible. Not only was the server wakeful and we waited 40 minutes for our food- the server forgot to put in the order, but when we did get it it was cold! The brought out supposedly a new order, which was just slightly warmer than the first. Very disappointing.

My girlfriend and I ate here for lunch. The staff was excellent. The food was amazing. We split an appetizer and a main course meal. The drinks were great. We had a lot of fun and left completely stuffed. It was my first Bubba's experience and I cant wait to have it again.
