Touristy....but that's what Kemah Boardwalk is

Not bad, menu had a nice variety. Be aware that the prices are A little higher due to location. Nice views of the gulf waters from some of the tables. Happy hour was only at the bar...bummer...service was adequate...we were not rushed, but the place was not too busy.

This was so much fun! Take a picture at the bench with the box of chocolates and tennis shoes of Forrest Gump. The food was wonderful. The kids wanted to go back the next night!

No comparison next to Joe's. Their mix drink menu SUX! If your a BIG Shrimp buff...this is the place for you. If your looking for a place to get a few mixed drinks off the boardwalk....definately keep walking. Their mixed drink menu sucks butt. Over priced and sux...keep stepping...

This was my first time at Bubbas but who knows how many times for my wife! Super clean, lots of fun, great fish and shrimp and for me, the best spot to watch the boat traffic to and from the bay. We drove down for the Houston Boat show so we had to go to Galveston and Kemah too. So... More

Dined here for New Year's Eve. WE only had to wait about 1/2 hour for a table. The wait staff was excellent and suggested several items as well as specials and drinks. Our group all enjoyed our dinner and drinks. The portions were more than generous and the prices were average for the Boardwalk. We will go back when the... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at this Bubba Gump location. After being seated, we asked to be moved to a window table that was vacated, and our request was accommodated. Our server was very helpful and when she was unsure of our requests, she brought the bartender over to clarify. Food was good.

Very expensive menu with more ice in the drinks than liquid from the drink itself. The amount of food is ristretto although the price is more in line with a 4 star restaurant. The choice for dessert was limited. The point positive is the service.

Had lunch here during our visit to the boardwalk. Food was very good, service was excellent. Nice interior and views. Was a very enjoyable meal with family and nice way to cap off the trip to the boardwalk

This Bubba Gump's was located on the water and had a lot of seating. The staff was very friendly, nearly too friendly. The food was served quickly and was pretty good. They went out of their way to find gluten free dishes for my dinner companion. The price was ok.
