I have always wanted to try Bubba Gump and finally got the chance on a recent trip to Charleston, SC. We only had a 15 minute wait and was quickly seated. Our waitress was very knowledgable with the menu and I loved the mini trivia that we played about the movie while waiting on our food. The restaurant was decorated... More

In the type of person that loves to eat. I'm a foodie lol. The service here is excellent. The waiters are really customer friendly. I didn't liked the food though. I ordered a shrimp linguine. I thought it was just dry so I asked off more sauce. It was like eating noodles, shrimp and limeish water. Their she crab soup... More

I've always wanted to come to this place and finally did. I can't remember our server's name, but he was excellent!! He was very helpful with the menu and knew it very well. There was so many choices on the menu. The food was excellent as well. They have inside and outside eating. We sat outside and the weather was... More

This is the second time we have eaten at Bubba Gump’s; our first time was in 2001 it was a good experience. For this time there are some novelties but aside from that it's just a normal restaurant. The food was good but not great and the drinks were very expensive and I’ve noticed that the alcohol content was very... More

This is the third time we have eaten at Bubba Gumps. First time at this location. There is a certain novelty to it but aside from that it's just an average restaurant. The food is ok but not anything you can't get many places. Service is average. I think it just doesn't do anything for me. I don't have anything... More

Needed somewhere for lunch, and this was where we were. An interesting - and for us - novel meal, with only a 5 minute wait outside to get seated. A usual tourist trap - but we had a fun time with the novelty of it- and provided you like deep fried seafood, nice food, though a bit pricey. Good service... More

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co is a place worth visiting. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. If you like the Forest Gump movie, then you'll really enjoy all the memorabilia located throughout the restaurant. Our waitress made the dining experience even more fun by quizzing us on trivia about the movie.

I cannot RAVE about the service enough. It was fantastic. Our main waitress was fun and engaging and so sweet. The food was great. Not 5 star but 3...and a half. The portion sizes were not proportional to their prices. I would expect more. But it was good and the service was amazing.

To start the server was from Europe and did not do well with the English language, she also did not know the menu very well. The drinks were very expensive and we noticed that the alcohol content was very lacking. The food was good but not great and for the four of us with two drinks each and tip the... More
