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

The staff was really cool and friendly. Portions were GREAT, quality was good and décor was really nice. If the key lime pie had been a little less like a cheese cake I would have given the place five stars.

Our waiter was great although he seemed like he may have been new. He did the forest Gump trivia with us which was fun. A guy in a huge shrimp costume made his way around the restaurant and that was also a nice quirk. I ordered the mushroom veggie burger which came with fries and it was very good. The... More

Awesome speckled straw lemonade. Blueberry lemonade looks and taste good, but can not taste blueberry. Shrimp & veggie skewers was good. We flipped the sign, "Forest to stop" but it still took awhile to stop. One time we had to stop a waitress, being they did not notice our sign.

This place is wonderful! The food is excellent and the staff is even better! There's not one bad thing I can say about our dinner. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and we had a very pleasant dinner!

Fun place to eat. Server didn't quiz us on the movie trivia though, that's always one of my favorite parts of eating at BGSC. Food was good. Had to wait 45 minutes prior to being seated, place was very busy for lunch time. Would go again if visiting the mall.

Crab was overdone and no meat disapointing. Decent service but I guess I was expecting a little more. Overall the food was ok but not worth the final bill.
