Wonderful oysters, great view

Had the fried oyster appetizer for lunch and it was delicious. Piping hot, not greasy, the oysters were tender and succulent with a light taste. They were served on a bed of coleslaw and topped with a drizzling of mildly hot horseradish sauce. Yum! Also had the soup and salad combo which for me... read more

We choose this restaurant the evening before our cruise out of Houston. Location was great because of the Kemah Boardwalk Amusement Park. Several choices were available but chose Bubba Gump to compare to New York's experience. Very average food for the price (small portions). Again location won out.

If feels really like vacation when you are seating on the terrace or on the patio. Service is efficient. Nice for a family lunch or dinner.

We live in the area and decided to try Bubba Gump just to enjoy the view. The food is overpriced for quality and portions. Our fried oysters (all 7 of them) were full of shell pieces. Our meals were bland at best. Have a drink here, but choose another restaurant if you want a meal that matches the price.

We drove down today for dinner. The entire boardwalk is a tourist trap, but it rained today and its off season so some locations were not even open. We were seated and the service was good. They were very accompanying with the food allergy in our party. Food was standard fare, but drinks were good.

We took my 8 year old there for her birthday. The food was great. The wait staff was awesome. We really enjoyed the food. They sang happy birthday to her and were a lot of fun. The bathroom was clean. The gift store was great. The girl working there was great.

I do NOT eat shrimps, prawns or any creatures of that animal group or phyllum but they looked irresistible at Bubba Gump Shrimps Co and I could not control myself. Ordered them and had one full plate. They are just awesome...!! Too tasty. One cannot even understand that they are shrimps, maybe that's why I gobbled them all up.

After a trip out to Kemah Boardwalk we decided to eat at Bubba Gumps as we have been to the Orlando one several times so new what to expect. This restaurant did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly and fun and the food was fantastic. We ordered the 'Forrest Seafood Feast' and the 'Shrimp Mac & Cheese'. Both meals... More
