The start was good but after we order its takes to long before they serve it. The food is also cold, with small serving for the price, so its not worth it. It tastes good though. Its my first time to eat here and I think Im not gonna go back again.

We had good food, good service at a reasonable price. Just what you want when on holiday. The only negative was the apparent female relative of foghorn leghorn on the next table, but the restaurant cannot do anything about that. Michael, Nottingham, UK.

We just wanted a quick meal. The food was actually okay. The marketing was way too much. We know this was a chain restaurant but if they want to stay in business they should go back to basics. Good food, great service and stop the up-selling - it's off putting.

After a tour of the city of Charleston my group of 50 Seniors from Connecticut had reservations for dinner at this restaurant. It is in the heart of the shopping area in downtown Charleston and very easy to find. The staff was very helpful to us and the ladies I ate with all liked the dinners we each had. My... More

While visiting charleston it goes without saying you have to stop in at bubba gumps! The decor was awesome, the waitstaff and employees were pleasant and helpful. The menu and prices were unbeatable, and the food just as good! Appetizers had plenty for 2, and our sandwiches really hit the spot! It's situated right next to the market for close... More

After walking around the city-I was hungry. This place is okay. Yes, it's a chain restaurant-but it still had a neat factor to it. The food tasted good to me and I was pleased with the service. No com[plaints from me.

We were at the Historic Market Area, when we passed by this restaurant, it caught my eye the advertisement where it showed that they had "gumbo", just like mama makes it!. So, I decided to give a try, it turn out to be just OK, it lacked shrimp an it was toooo spicy.. The service was less that average, we... More

Great atmosphere - we sat on the patio. The battered cod and fries was excellent, the beer was good and so was the service.
