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!

Had lunch here while visiting Chicago. The food was beyond gorgeous, had the coconut shrimp and it was simply the best thing ever. My husband had the mixed fish and was just as overjoyed with his experience. The staff are so friendly and helpful. If you are in Chicago a visit is a definate must.

Pros - Great service, nice view and lively atmosphere. Cons- Seafood tasted frozen, not fresh. Very bland fried shrimp and average French fries. The seafood hushpuppies tasted weird, didn't care for the meaty hushpuppy (Ewww). But great service and friendly staff. Definitely a tourist stop, very busy. Not bad, but not great.

If you've never eaten at a Bubba Gump Shrimp you need to, and our experience at the on on Navy Pier is a good example of why. Our waitress took the time to sit and chat with us and go over how things work at a Bubba Gump, then recomended items and we all poked a little fun at each... More

This is a nice place for an outdoor meal, especially if you like shrimp. But it is a little pricey, yet it has great atmosphere.

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
