Lots of whacky fried bar foods that we tried to avoid. The shrimp was okay but seasoning was too strong and overtaken the natural shrimp favor. Veggie and beef burgers were alright. The chef has amazing knife skill to trim the fish fillet so thin on the fish burger. Lemonade is $8.99 and you get to keep the flashy plastic... More

Three dining for lunch. Each ordered a different shrimp dish. Food was great! Still think it was overpriced. Atmosphere, a bit cramped for me and tight quarters. Server was nice, they use a flip sign system. Run Forrest Run means don't need to stop. Stop Forrest Stop means need a server to stop. It was a treat for us as... More

During our visit to the Mall on a Saturday, we stopped at 5pm to beat the rush. We got a table right away, ordered, and had our food within 15 minutes. Our waiter was super outgoing and gave great service. Food was excellent! We'll be back!

I dined with two other women at this Restaurant the last week of June. The service stunk to say the least. I ordered a seafood bucket which had king crab legs. They were so old you could not crack/snap the legs...they just bent. It was very disappointing and the waiters acted like it was not an issue. The cook or... More

Service was good, but not outstanding. Food was okay. Have never been to a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. so I have nothing to compare it with brand-wise. However, I do have lots of other places to compare it with. You are going to go for the name, not the food. If it is any help to those reading this, I... More

If you like shrimp, this is the place to be. You can find them cooked almost anyway you like. The service is great, and the varied summer drinks were nice also. Just a fun place to eat at the mall!!

We went for a late lunch. Restaurant was not busy, yet they sat us in a less-than-ideal location (despite request). Prices were high considering the menu options (and we are not cheap consumers). We felt sick almost immediately after eating our meal...and could not eat the rest of the day. Would not recommend restaurant!

I'm not a Bubba Gump fan but I stopped in because it was not crowded. Had the shrimp Mac and cheese and it was very good. After rejecting two different glasses of iced tea, settled with the lemonade. Moral of the story- stay away from their iced tea. Even the waitress said it was terrible (wish she would have told... More

We have seen Bubba Gumps as we traveled and never eaten there. We decided to stop and try it. Good food, a fun atmosphere and good service. An all-around nice experience.

I had visited another Bubba Gump location several years earlier and was not overly enthused about their food. This particular location only confirmed this opinion. We were seated quickly, but our server was not very on-task or knowledgeable about the menu. When my son asked about the number of shrimp on a particular dish he didn't know the answer. When... More
