Quirky and Endearing - Just like the movie itself

After reviewing the menu outside, my husband and I decided while a little pricy, each of us could find something not too spicy or greasy for dinner. Unfortunately, the menu outside was not up-to-date so my original two choices: Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwich and BLT Shrimp Salad were no longer... read more

This restaurant on this day left us wondering where the meat (fish and shrimp) was. The presentation (appearance) of the food at Bubba Gump's is always outstanding. But our food ( Captain's Fish n Chips and "Forrest's Seafood Feast") was layered with breading, breading and more of the same. And it was flavorless breading! The fries were good because they...

Went here for an evening meal. Three people in party. Immediate seating and great quick service. I am not a seafood eater but the fried chicken here never disappoints. The remaining people in my party had Chipotle Crusted Tilapia and Coconut Shrimp. They both said that it was excellent.

Our server Madison was awesome. She explained everything to us first timers and even engaged us in some Forrest Gump trivia (believe it was a requirement of the waitstaff, but still she did it cheerfully). We ordered a sampler app and shrimper's heaven for our family of 4 to share. Was decent amount of food and tasted pretty good, although... More

The food was really good, and the service was great! Typical expensive seafood. We split meals so we could all try a variety of shrimp and there was more than enough food. Also the garlic bread was awesome!

My other half is a huge fan of the movie, so we decided to have dinner one night while finishing shopping at the mall. We were quickly seated and our waitress was unreal. She was super friendly, very knowledgeable, always made sure we were good. Before our food arrived at our table she chit chatted with us and we did... More

Bubba Gumps is located on the 3rd level of the Mall of America. There are great photo ops there! We were greeted with friendly Minnesota smiles and sat immediately. Our server, Catie, was a great joy! She was friendly and took great care of us. We ordered crab legs, mac & cheese with shrimp, shrimp meal with rice, and 2... More

This was the second time that I have eaten at Bubba Gumps. I really like the service you get here. Any employee that walks by when you need something will stop and help you. I had the fried shrimp poboy sandwich. I enjoyed my food and the service here. I would recommend Bubba Gumps and would eat here again.

I love the movie Forrest Gump, and thought the restaurant and store were very cool. The food was incredibly average. I got the Shrimp Po-Boy. Meh. I've had WAY better Po-Boys. Very disappointed.
