Great place to eat for both seafood lovers and non-seafood lovers. Prices reasonable but if you don't make a reservation at least a day in advance you won't get in.

This restaurant is conveniently located right beside the Charleston City Market. The inside of the restaurant has all kinds of cool signs, posters, and memorabilia from the Forrest Gump movie. There is ample seating on several inside levels, plus a large outdoor seating area. This was our first trip to any of the Bubba Gump restaurants so it took a... More

We were there for a late lunch so the place was not crowded yet service was slow. We were seated fasted enough, but getting waited on was a different matter.

The food at Bubba Gumps was some of the most delicious food I ate at any of the restaurants I visited recently when in Charleston, SC! The waiter was cute, funny and did a super job! The drinks were awesome! Would certainly go back next time I'm in Charleston!

I was so looking forward to visiting this famous restaurant but boy was I disappointed! The food was way over priced and it wasn't even that good and the wait staff really should have been fired. They did nothing for us. It's like we weren't even sitting there. The only good thing I can say is the location was lovely... More

We dined outside for lunch on the patio. Our server was from Boston and he was also the bartender. Very attentive and knowledgeable on the beverages and the food. The food was great and so was the service. We would recommend Bubbas in Charleston.

I've eaten at Bubba Gump in Galveston and it was outstanding! The restaurant in Charleston was equally great. Great atmosphere, great service, and great food!
