If you like seafood with a difference, you should check this place out. Pretty good entrees and inviting appetizers, especially the cajun shrimp which comes in a chill-garlic sauce and two slices of bread. Plenty of beverages to cool one off, too. Just make sure you call ahead on a holiday or over a weekend. Check out their LANDRY'S SELECT... More

We were in the mood for seafood. I loved my entree (shimpin' dippin' broth) but my husband did not like his (Shrimper's Heaven, sauces were all too sweet). The drinks were ok but the shakers they came in were awful! (horrible mess even when holding the cap down as directed) The signs for service Run and Stop Forrest are genius... More

My mother and I were in the mood for seafood and happened to be at MOA, so we stopped in here. My mother was in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating to her needs. We had the frizzled onions which were very good. A little pricey, but about what I expected at MOA, all things considered. We shared the... More

The food was good, the atmosphere was noisy and happy. Singing birthday wishes if that is what you want. It's not quit and romantic, be forewarned.

Tempura Shrimp is the best. Get the shrimp in the basket is the only way to get the Tempura Shrimp. Ask for a table on the deck so you can people watch.

The short wait time was a positive considering we had small children with us. Staff is very friendly.Food was average to above average and arrived at our table in a timely manner. I have ate here a couple of times before and received the same service. Will definitely go back. Thanks for the pleasant dining experience.

Little to spendy for what we got. The staff were friendly but why sit us in a intersection when there were empty tables in less congested areas!!

Service was fast, friendly and fun but food was just average. Seemed pricey for the food quantity and quality. We ordered a Shrimp sampler for $20 which had 4 types of shrimp (chilly shrimp, tempura shrimp, fried shrimp, coconut shrimp) and fries. There was about 5 tempura, 10 chilly, 4 fried and 3 coconut shrimps and a large handful of... More

I have eaten at Bubba Gump many times. The service is always great and I love the movie trivia questions the waitress asks. Unfortunately, the food quality seems to be going down hill a bit. My friends and I all ordered dishes that had some sort of batter fried item. The batter on the shrimp and fish was very thick... More

I love gimmicks, anything where you get a perk for purchasing something you would want anyway is fun. When I was at this restaurant I was not a seafood fan. However, I was able to find a menu item that was wonderful with chicken. I also loved that I was able to go home with a lighted "ice cube" from... More
