Don't waste your time

It's good for appetizers and water. Husband ordered a beer on draft. Tasted flat and not all the way cold. Ordered was the Jennys shellfish and one order of the appetizer shrimp. Shrimp was better than the Jennys steam pot. Left hungry.

After a nice walk across town we stumbled across this nice little restaurant. The waiter who saw I was having trouble finding something to drink walked over to the bar and gave me some wonderful suggestions. He wasn't even our waiter but did an amazing job actually recommending something I would drink. The bartender was good and mixed two wonderful... More

Spent $50 at this restaurant while visiting Charleston. I ordered the feast and cheeseburger kids meal for my daughter. The hush puppies had dried out corn bits inside them and there was mostly fries with just a few shrimp and fish at the top. Everything tasted like it was out of a microwave box. The only thing I enjoyed was... More

Awesome atmosphere. I am a HUGE Forrest Gump fan, so this was too cool and fun to eat at. Couldn't stop smiling. Food was DELICIOUS. Best burger I've ever had, but made me incredibly sick the second I walked out the place. Didn't seem to effect anyone else I attended with, but got me good! Staff seemed to stand around... More

We try to hit every Bubba Gump in any city we visit while on vacation. Never dissapointed with the food or drinks. This particular Bubba Gump was not as good as some of the others, but still well worth the stop.

We have very fond memories of our meal at Bubba Gump. We had a leaflet for complimentary Hush Pups. These were enjoyed. The burgers were excellent. The meal portions large. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Monday at lunch in June, NO waiting time. Waitress was quick to get our drink and food order. Food came reasonably quick and was prepared correctly. Quality was good, service was great and she cleaned the take home mugs and dried them for us. Very good experience for the family
