If there had been any other decent restaurants nearby I wouldn't have chosen this one, but we had just finished a long walk and needed a quick bite. I've never eaten at Bubba Gump before, so we decided to try it. Let this be clear, it's not a gourmet restaurant, but it never pretends to be either. However it impressed... More

I ventured into this restaurant because of its proximity to the freezing cold boat ride up the river I'd been on and my love for the movie. After a 75 minute boat ride in the freezing cold I needed warming up and food. I was warmly greeted by lovely young ladies filled with energy who engendered the 'Forrest Gump' spirit.... More

First of all, I like the atmosphere of Bubba Gump and altough they all look the same it's other service every time. But this Chicago location didn't disappoint at all. I walked in around lunch time and a table was available almost immediately. The guy who served me was very friendly, took time to talk to me, gave me some... More

Such a cool concept and theme. Food is okay. Kinda small portion. Only go if you are a fan of the movie. Otherwise, best save your money and go to a different restaurant.

Had a fishwhich, a must try for a seafood lover. The staff there was friendly and actually enjoyable. If you are a seafood lover this is the place for you, if not...not a lot else to choose from. But....it is a shrimp company!

The decor is fun and the ordering system is unique. I hate the way the Maitre D's try and palm you off on the worst table in the restaurant, when so many others are available. Food was fair, but a bit procey.

If you love the movie Forrest Gump then this place is a must. The food was delicious and we are picky eaters. There was something on the menu to satisfy all of us. The kids loved to switch the sign to Stop to see which staff member would stop first to get them what they needed. Loved the gift shop... More

We had heard the lines could be very long on the weekends. We ate at an off time (4:00pm) and only waited 20 minutes. yes, it was crowed and the tables fairly close, but the food and service was excellent.
