Crab stuffed shrimp was awesome! So were the Hushpuppies!! License Plates that read Run Forest Run and Stop Forest Stop to signal the waiter/waitress to pass on by or stop for service. Cute idea :) Gift shop was small but nice variety of items! (Hint: Check out the clearance corner!) I can't remember how much, maybe $40, but if you... More

Every time I'm in town for multiple days, I make a stop at Bubba Gump. But this was probably the last time. They have nice outdoor seating, and as usual we asked to get a table there. We were there early and there was only one other table taken. They managed to seat us at a table with soaking wet... More

The chain tries to cash in on everything related to the movie instead of giving good food at a reasonable price. The food was okay but not a great value for the money. Gift shop prices were high considering they had just clothing with a company logo on them.

Whether it was my stuffed shrimp or the steak my fiancé had, the food was great. The 10 oz. sirloin cut with your fork tender. The crab stuffed shrimp fantastic. Then there was the margarita. Had the small one came in the shaker, and filled my glass 4 times. Great value and great food!

We wanted a place downtown, not too expensive or trendy. My fried chicken was great, and my husband liked the shrimp, We didn't have to wait at all which was good since it was raining. Love to go again!

Had to eat here as who does not like Forest Gump. Outside dining is nice and service was great. Loved the seafood hush puppies! Ate here twice for lunch, cant beat the service, prices and atmosphere.

This restaurant just popped up along our walking route - it was a late lunch - the place wasn't packed - great waiter service, gave good menu suggestions. He even steered us clear of any spicy items on the menu which was a concern for member of our party. Coconut Shrimp is a must!!! Chicken Cordon Bleu sandwich was good... More

First off, Marisa K. is one of the best waitresses I have ever had anywhere. Super attentive, made menu suggestions, was funny, and helpful. We had the hush puppies and they were delicious, just wish there were more of them! Food was good. Drinks were good. Decor is hoaky but fun. Love the movie so the decor was okay with... More

If your looking for a romantic dinner this is not your place. But if your looking for delicious food, loud atmosphere, fun, family friendly,great drinks and not in a hurry, this is the place...we have had just about everything on the menu, but I love the shrimp and grits....and for lunch, the loaded hot dog...and great kids menu.
