I normally do not write reviews, however, this was a must! I am normally a Disney Fanatic, meaning I don't like places other than Disney. Today I randomly thought about Bubba Gump Shrimp since I was in the magnificent town of Charleston. We were seated rather quickly, in fact, in less than 10 minutes. The server got to our table...

We;d travelled all day and were tired and fussy about what to eat. A rainy night didn't help, and we walked around looking at menus - discarding this and that. We'd discounted chains - but my wife stopped and looked at the menu and called me back. There was a heap of stuff that wasnt just deep fried (as well... More

Great experience. Anyone that has seen the movie will appreciate all that goes into the "bubba gump" experience.

Our server was friendly and efficient, this is helped by the "Stop and Run Forrest" signs though. Our food was very tasty, from my shrimp, to my wife's... More

Better watch Forrest Gump again before you go! Waitresses will ask you questions about the movie! We went in for a light lunch and had a ball! The food was tasty and reasonably priced. The decor in the restaurant was a display of movie memorabilia. Go by the gift shop going in or coming out! We got souvenirs to take... More

I have eaten at this Bubba Gump's three times, and have eaten at other Bubba Gump's restaurants in other towns. This one is by far the pick of the litter. The outdoor seating area is great, and seafood always tastes better while breathing salt air. I have always gotten excellent service here, and have no complaints at all about the... More
