Hey it's Times Square and it's densely packed with tourists. Your kids really want to go. So what so you do, you take them. The staff is nice and will help with photos. The food is fine. Here's the downside; the wait can be long and the prices are sky high. Think I spent more on a beer here than... read more

Visited the gift shop last week, very friendly staff, I only bought a few souvenir magnets this year as I bought a few hoodies and Tea shirts last year. Was offered to buy a $12 child's baseball hat for $5 I couldn't resist this offer so bought one for my grandson. Well worth a visit to the restaurant upstairs and... More

No matter the time of day, no matter how busy, the staff are brilliant and the food is consistently great. A party of 40+ arrived before us and it made no difference to our service at all - impressive!!! It doesn't matter if you don't like the film, it's the food that makes Bubba Gump a must-go in NYC

A great late lunch and the food was delicious. The fried onions arrived and were cold so we had I send them back... But all in all a great meal and would highly recommend.

Nice place, sat us right away (part of 6). Wish I would have gotten their names, but the one young lady that greeted us and the one young lady that sat us were both very sweet (8/27/15, approximately 7:30) and our waiter, Daryl, super nice, attentive and even took the time to come by and chat for a bit, thanks...

We visited Bubba Gump Times Square after watching a play on Broadway. The waiting time was quoted at 25mins but we were seen after ten. All of the staff were incredibly friendly, which was even more impressive considering this was 10pm! We were served by Kellie, who was very helpful and took care of everything for us, as well as...

Been looking forward to eating here for a long while and I wasn't disappointed. Good selection of seafood (mostly) and non-seafood meals. Good service as well. Great view of Times Square if sat by the window.

If your looking for a tourist trap this is it! The food was only average at best . And rather expensive! If you like the movie and that's why your looking for Bubba Gump's that's great. Other wise I'd look for something better. This is no place I'd recommend.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
