Great jambalaya

Located in the Mall Of America on the second floor. After visiting the mall you will need a place to sit and relax. The staff was very friendly and prompt.

Arrived in town on Saturday evening & chose to eat here. Staff was very attentive & friendly. Our server even sat at the table & tested our Forrest Gump knowledge. We all enjoyed our food. Prices were a little high overall, but they were in line with all other food options within the mall. Don't go if you are expecting... More

The wait service was attentive and friendly. Our food was ready quickly, and we all enjoyed our meals. My son liked that his meal came in a boat.

If you've never been to a Bubba Gump (and you liked the movie), you should try it. It is a fun experience. It is not a quiet place, which is part of what makes it fun. If you're dining with anyone who's hard of hearing, this is probably not your best options. Everyone's food was good. I had a salad... More

What you would expect from a chain seafood restaurant. Super extremely absolutely mediocre. Edible. The salad was not terrible. The fish is poorly cooked. I can only recommend fried food if you find you must eat here because your wife likes it. Run an extra mile or two tomorrow to get rid of the calories.

I've never been to one of these restaurants & really hadn't heard anything about them over the years, but they were nearby when we were hungry & I'm always hungry for seafood. After this experience, I won't be back. It's not bad, per se, but this is the epitome of a chain sea food restaurant. The non-inspired service and presentation... More

Seafood quality is very good, service is quick and good and value for money is quite reasonable. It worth the visit if you love shrimps.

Our first visit to the restaurant. Our waitress made the whole experience wonderful. We had an extra chair at our table so she sat right down and told us about the restaurant then began the process of bringing our drinks and food. The restaurant has a policy that if you flip over a license plate, someone will be there instantly... More

I recently visited this location on a long weekend getaway to mall of America. We typically stop here for shrimp and Forrest Gump trivia. This time the food was really disappointing. I had the shrimp feast and my husband had the shrimp scampi. They were just ok. Won't be back.

Its an interesting theme, a little corny but fun. The actual food was spot on, nicely prepared and presented. The only issue I would have is the price. My wife and I shared an appetizer, shared an entry, had one drink each and the bill was $56. Much to costly to frequent given the type of place it is. They... More
