Deep fat fried goodness with a flashy glass (at extra charge)

If you like batter fried seafood, this is the place for you. If you love all things Forrest Gump, this is the place for you. But watch out if you get the tea! The waitress (our's was named Jenny, of course) duped us into buying $8 glasses that light up at the push of a button. I should've known... read more

My wife and I went here while we stopped by Mall of Anerica. We got right in and seated. This was our first time at a bubba gump shrimp, and our waiter was very upbeat and nice and asked us if we've ever been to BGS and we said no so he gave us the run down. It was fun,... More

Very very busy on a Saturday at 5:30pm, but friendly staff, and great speedy service. Only waited 15 minutes to be seated, then got our food less than 10 minutes after ordering. Service made the experience so great. Good food, but very overpriced, but that's everything at MOA.

This was our first visit to any Bubba Gump location and we went to the one in the Mall of America over New Year's weekend. Given the holiday weekend and the fact that we arrived around lunchtime on a weekend, I figured we would have an hour wait. I was pleasantly surprised when we were seated within just a few... More

We were in a large group and they handled us perfectly, with little signs for when we did or didn't require anything. The food was nice, and plenty of it. There's something for everyone even if you don't like Shrimp! We also got to keep our Bubba Gump Glasses, which was great.

The food can be awesome here if you go when it's not peak busy times. There is a large selection of food. They have the best ribs in the mall even though they are known for seafood. The fried chicken is yummy too.

The service was quick and the food was good. I had the stuffed shrimp and it was very filling. Be sure to brush up on your Forrest Gump trivia before going. Also expect to pay $17 or more for an entree.

My husband and I came here on a weekend away. The atmosphere was fun, our water was friendly and attentive. The food was good, but nothing spectacular.

Stop by Bubba Gumps later afternoon for a drink, the bartender on hand was very busy making drinks for the wait staff as well as the people siting at the bar, she was very quick to interact and take orders from the patrons all the while filling orders, Come to find out she was covering for a no show and...

Usually order coconut shrimp button thought I'd try a shrimp and pasta dish this time around. Didn't enjoy as much as the spices seemed sour tasting. Will go back to my favorite ha gain in the future.
