We found this place to be very dirty under the servers station. Food and lots of dirt under the station. We also noticed a yellow extension cord running under clients chairs and tables. This seems to be a attached to an outlet. People could trip on the cord. Their coleslaw was dry, lacking an sign of mayo. Their dipping cups... More

We ordered Forrest Feast, Shrimp Scampi Linguini and a cheeseburger meal. The portions were very small for the amount of money you spend. The food was flavorless. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

My family and I ate at Bubba Gumps yesterday, and the value, quality, and service was so bad we would never return. This place survives on tourist who have never eaten there.

My wife and I, now with a 1 year old, travel quite a bit, and we always stop by Bubba Gump's when there is one around for the great food, and outstanding service. This one was no exception with the food - but what happened to the service? This felt like a run-of-the-mill staff, who were not into the theme... More

We had a nice waitress. She was sparkly in personality and worked took good care of us. The food was another story. It's pricy for what you get. And it is obvious that it's prepackaged. How do I know this? I wasn't really hungry but my companions were. I saw that they had two different grilled skewers on the menu... More

Yummy food, pet-friendly patio and great service. We always eat here when in Charleston! The Bubba's spinach dip is amazing.

if you need relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and shrimps, this is the place, especially as it is located close to the central market. Not the most fancy restaurant, but very good value.
