We really enjoyed this restaurant. The staff was very knowable on the Forest, and even came around and did triva with the customers. The seafood was fresh and seasoned well. The location was good right down town near the market place.

We decided to stop for dinner one weekday night. The place wasn't busy & we chose to sit outside. Good food & drinks, good service, reasonable prices and a great location across from the city market.

Good food and good service. We wanted to try Bubba Gumps just for the namesake. We were able to dine outside on a Saturday night with no wait! It was a little chilly but no complaints from us! Reasonable prices with good food and good service. Po'Boy sandwich is great but has a little kick! Shrimp and grits very spicy... More

We loved Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., the meals are served on trendy dishes or little metal buckets, very friendly service and welcome. Stunning selection of drinks, the shrimps are to die for. We had a great visit to Bubba Gumps.

Don't know what was in that fish, but I got the itchy, itchy feeling. Not good. Fun atmosphere, but will find someplace else when I'm in the mood for shrimp/seafood. Visiting relatives enjoyed it.

Recently visited Charleston with my daughter's soccer team. Reservations for 42! Bubba Gumps handled the entire process fantastic. Put us in an area of our own, with 3 servers, who each did a fantastic job. We had a few drinks spilled, and that didn't even fluster them. They even did some Forrest Gump trivia questions which was very entertaining. All... More

I ate an early dinner here with my husband last week. We try to stay away from chain restaurants, but a friend of his had strongly recommended it so we gave it a try. The food and drinks were so good! It was a little pricey but so are the other restaurants in the market area. We both got the... More

Food was not that great, came out pretty quickly, seemed like it was pre-prepared and warmed up, wasn't that hot. Service was good and so was the ice tea. Definitely not worth the money.
