Very Good Franchise Seafood Restaurant

Living in New York City I never knew we had a Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant here. My wife and I traveled to Maui, Hi a few years ago and ate in a Bubba Gump there for the first time. We both enjoyed it very much and we said to each other wouldn't it be great to have one in NY.... read more

We were staying close to Times Square and had always loved the movie so decided to go here for dinner. It is very popular and we had to queue for a table even though it is a very large restaurant up some stairs. The wait was not long and unsurprisingly there is a gift shop downstairs where you can buy... More

Bubba Gump, especially this location, is a familiar restaurant, mostly frequented by tourists. We had a quick meal--fish of course!--with adequate customer sevice and adequate taste. Nothing about this meal stood out. We discovered a few other restaurants just a few blocks west, on 9th Avenue, which we preferred to Bubba Gump.

Food was good, but we come for the location. Our waitress, Shin, was absolutely wonderful. She took the time to answer our questions about plays and even left us a special note on our receipt.

If you can request a seat by a window, preferably facing Times Square, even better... It was very convenient that the host sent us a text when our table was ready. I didn't like that the shrimp on the sampler app was not peeled. The shrimp looked peeled but was not. I had to spit the peels out with each... More

I went here because I wanted to have Fish and options. It is OK but not worth the money. The service is slow. The green and red signs don't really work. The servers are to busy and never looked at mine. The food is ordinary at best. Raised more like frozen then fresh fish. I would eat elsewhere next time.

It was really nice to have dinner here and the food was quite good even if the restaurant is "designed for tourists". Wateirs were helpfull in helping us with a personal issue not related with the restaurant. Nice evening.

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.
