Pretty Good (but far from amazing). Better like shrimp/seafood.

Typically every time I've gone I've been seated fairly quickly without a reservation. One of the best things they do that I feel more places should do (except for the fancier restaurants out there) is that you flip a sign at your table to alert a waiter/waitress that you need something rather than... read more

Like many themed restaurants, Bubba Gumps provides a good experience. That's one of the important parts of the brand. This place not only provides a good atmosphere, the variety of menu items and quality is very good. We enjoyed a great sampler app platter and salads with shrimp. All were a good portion and tasted good. There are signs on... More

Drinks were refreshing and fruity. Shrimp was spicy and delicious. Atmosphere was fun and lively. Server was funny and super helpful. No disappointments here. If you had a fun day at the mall continue the fun at Bubba Gump!

This was my first time a Bubba Gump and loved that you don't have to wait for you server to bring you something, any server who sees you need something will stop and help. Fast service and the best drinks we had all night. We only had drinks and an appetizer so I can't speak to the dinners.

The food is very good here, the wait staff very friendly and prompt. If you like shrimp served a ga-jillion different ways, this is the place. But bone up on your Forest Gump trivia, because you might be asked a few questions... Run Forrest! Run!

We go to Bubbas for certain great dishes, which are always great. The noise level was extremely high as are all Mall Of America restaurants, but there idea of getting service to the table (flipping plates on a stand) was a bit slow and unnoticed.

I was excited to try Bubba Gump Shrimp because I love shrimp so it was perfect that they had one at our stop to the Mall of America. On a Tuesday evening the restaurant was not busy. The food was decent for a chain restaurant but very expensive. The order of shrimp skewers came with 4 shrimp. The stuffed shrimp... More

I don't usually like this gimmicky type of restaurant. I prefer restaurants that are mainly known for food, and avoid the kitschy decorations. When we went to this restaurant, I skipped the brightly colored and lit drinks and had iced tea. I had their Shrimp New Orleans, and I was quite happy with it. As long as the food is... More

We recently visited the Mall of America and after a long day we decided to have dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp. What a wise decision. Our server was pleasant, prompt and made the trip fun and enjoyable. The food was fast, delicious and worth the price. The prices are a little more expensive than say TGIFs but still worth the... More

Okay...so this restaurant is a little on the pricey side, but it's a great experience. From the "Run Forrest Run" and "Stop Forrest Stop" license plates used for service on the table to the waitress doing Forrest Gump trivia prior to the delivery of the food, it was a great experience for myself and the kids. I had one of... More
