Good food experience on Navy Pier

Bubba Gump has improved vegetarian options and now gives a discount for removing shrimp from a pasta entrée. It was tasty with the extra vegetables they added.

I have always liked this place. Good food, a little overpriced, great location. This time we ordered off of the summer special menu. There were no prices on this menu. When my wife asked how much her salad would cost, the waitress said she was not sure but thought it was $12.00 and would check for sure. It was $18.99.... More

A fun place to eat, staff was fast and offered good service. The decorations and store were great to reminisce about the movie. Disappointing gluten free selections. The smells are great but frustrating for those of us that have about three meals to select from.

We had an awesome server who was very attentive and provided very prompt service...he recommended the strawberry shortcake for desert and I'm so glad he did! The cake was splendid, it didn't taste artificial at all either...the "cake" was like a flaky biscuit which was different...I was able to finish mine, but my friend wasn't...with it being the weekend, it...

This is located right at the Navy Pier, and was usually crowded every time I went there. The food was good but was a little pricey for my tastes.

Same menu as all the other Bubba Gumps. Food was hot and tasty. Reasonable prices considering it's located in one of the hottest tourist spots in Chicago

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
