We always stop here for a drink and snack first when arrive to the mall! The drinks were great, Long Island Ice tea is what we had. The appetizer wasn't so great, hush puppies but they puts some other stuff in them...crab and corn or something. Not good. It was more like a deep fried crab cake and nothing at... More

Excellent service from the host to the servers. Everyone helps each other out which I love to see in a restaurant. Fun atmosphere and great food, if you like shrimp. There are a few non-seafood items, but most dishes involve shrimp or other seafood.

There were 8 of us. It was ok. The breaded fish & chips was mostly breaded and not much fish. Others seemed to enjoy their meals but no one really raved about it. Atmosphere was sort of fun and we ate "outside". The teenagers really like it so we will probably go there again.

Good shrimp of course! I cannot stand this minimum character crap; so I am filling this in with nonsense.

The food is always good, but I hate how expensive it is for what you get. I think there should be a discount for Local guests so the chances of returning more frequently are increased.

It's a cute place, especially liked how you could flag down a wait staff with the "stop Forrest stop" sign. Our server was friendly. The shrimp had a very good breading, not the usual cornmeal type, but a light crunchy breading. I liked that they were able to sub grilled shrimp for my daughter's kids meal (she doesn't care for...

Everyone loves Forrest Gump! Must stop. I was surprised how good the food was, it was amazing! Bread was yummy. The Forrest Gump decor really tops it off.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times. Service today was good. But my wife and I are gluten free and Bubba Gump used to have more GF options. With a change in the menu the list is much smaller and in my opinion does not include even some of their signature dishes that were gluten free in... More

Words cannot express how much I wish I lived closer to a Bubba Gump's. The restaurant is good an kitschy (my favorite kind), the service is good, and the food. Holy mother the food. So. Freakin. Good. We go every time we're in a city with one.
