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$...

If you are at Navy Pier, don't go to this restaurant. We were desperate and my wife wanted to try it. We asked for a table to view the fireworks and they told us that section was closed for the night. I ordered a disn of tasteless, rubbery shrimp for about $25. My wife wanted a margarita. It was $11... More

Food was honestly good if you are into the Cajun or deep fried shrimp thing. Pretty cliché, and very "chain restaurant like". Definitely a tourist type of place. I honestly do not see myself going back though. 2 beers, an appetizer and 2 meals later our $75 lunch bill came to our table and that did kinda discourage me a... More

We decided to eat here after our Navy Pier visit and it was a great choice! We were able to walk right in and be seated. The waitress was great, talked about the movie, answered our questions and made sure we were well taken care of. The "Shrimp Heaven" taste great, we'll be back!

Not an atmosphere for conversation. Must have outdoor seating during summer as location was small, crowded and noisy. But we bought a socking-stuffing t-shirt.

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
