Once we were sat server came over quickly. She was very friendly even thou she was feeling good!... More

This was a sad experience.. My family and I drove from Indianapolis to Chicago for a birthday get together. We had a reservation for 6:30 pm, we arrived at 6:25pm. It was a party of 9 but only 6 was there, so I was told that once everyone gets there we would be seated. At 6:40 the party was all... More

I am a vegetarian so we go when at the Pier because the kids love it. Good for a quick informal snack.

We ate at Bubba Gump at Navy Pier. We expected the usual fun waiters and great food, but got so much more. Our waiter was so much fun and made our evening a blast. The food and drinks were wonderful and we had a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this Bubba Gump.

Touristy spot at The Navy Pier. Food is so-so and a bit over-priced. Service is great and the atmosphere is fun. Had a nice lunch on a snowy day.

After walking a couple of hours in Chicago, I found myself on the Navy Pier and for a meal Bubba Gump looked attractive. Very friendly staff, a kind of 'New Orleans' atmosphere, nice menu and beer from the tap. The food - pasta with mixed seafood - was good and decently priced but the beer was a rip off: 12.24$...
