I've always liked the food here, especially the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi. My wife loved the Net Catch Entree, but that was taken off the menu a few years ago. It's back on to my wife's delight! I used to determine the frequency we visited, now my wife is hinting we should go back. Great decision Bubba Gump!!

Okay, being from the South and raised on good seafood, I am tough customer whenever eating in MN. Shrimp not fresh or good - really dislike batter. It's shrimp season so no reason for this or small size. Everything is overpriced! I like other Landry companies but NOT Bubba Gump. Curious if same poor tasting/quality served in South. Service was... More

This is one of my daughter's new favorite restaurants. We enjoyed our various shrimp meals. The service is friendly and responsive. The chain has a clever way to have servers stop at your table when you need something. The atmosphere centers around the movie Forest Gump. The only slight negative for me is the prices are a bit steep for... More

I realize that this is a chain restaurant and I generally choose not to review them , but this was a great experience. There was a good variety of meal to choose from and the drink menu was extensive. Service and food were better than expected all though we did feel a bit rushed when the meals came out with... More

Really! I know this is chain and really doesn't need to be reviewed, but Really! No matter how you package a shrimp, it's still a shrimp. Whoever decided to make money off a movie as dumb as Forrest Gump has got to be laughing all the way to the bank. The place is loud, the food is mediocre and who... More

Pretty good seafood, waitstaff kept us entertained. Location is in Mall of America, so it can get full fast during lunch and dinner.

I recently visited Bubba Gumps with my family and a group of friends from Chicago (we live in Rochester, MN) for dinner. It was busy but we got seated reasonably fast. I had last been at Bubba Gumps about two years ago for lunch and enjoyed the experience. I was surprised how much more expensive dinner is a this restaurant... More

We took our grandsons to Bubba Gumps at the Mall of America. One ordered pizza, one ordered a burger, and my husband and I ordered the fish fry! It was excellent! No gummy pieces, no overdone pieces, it was perfect. The coleslaw was really good and the fries were great too. Then we did Forrest Gump trivia with our waitress,... More

We had a coupon for a free appetizer but did not have a choice as to which one. Turned out not to be gluten free. That was very disappointing. What was served was a tortilla chip and shrimp/spinach dip that was okay. It would have been nice if they had accommodated us with a GF appetizer. I had the soup... More
