Fantastic atmosphere in NYC

Visited whilst on a three day visit to the Big Apple with my family. Massive fun with very cool decor. Great service and food providing you like prawns. Expensive for what you get but hey this NYC.

For visitors to Times Square, Bubbas is a must for shrimp lovers. The atmosphere great and the staff couldn't do enough for you. 10 out of 10 to Travis who helped make our night great fun.

And what previous reviewers have highlighted, I have to agree this restaurant can get very busy - so be prepared for some waiting for a table. My group of four ended having to wait for almost half an hour, but we made use of the waiting time snapping photos of ourselves at some interesting corners of the restaurant... 😜 Just... More

This place tends to get very busy so expect at least a half hour wait if you haven't booked and arrive after 6pm. The food is OK nothing special but the service is very good (as they want your tips). The restaurant is quite hectic and is probably more suitable for groups rather than couples.

Great fun and service. Staff was entertaining and the food was great for a box store restaurant. Reasonably priced for the family looking for a meal. Great location for the Broadway shoppers and show watchers.

Really good food of its type. The only problem is you can not book in advance and at peak times there can be quite a wait for a table. The food and atmosphere make it worth the wait.

Always wanted to try Bubba Gump Shrimp, but never did until February 2015. I went in and it was crowded with tourists. I encountered friendly staff. Food was good.

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.
