Fun, friendly, Times Square location

Ate here along with nearly 100 high school choir students and chaperones. While the entrance/foyer was dark, cramped and crowded, the upstairs is open and bright. Our servers were friendly and fast. They even played a Forest Gump trivia game with our group. Fellow Southerners, please know they do... read more

My daughter went here as part of her school trip. She doesn't like fish & I worried she would end up with just fries. Although she normally doesn't like burgers, she ordered one & said it was the best burger ever. Their overall experience was great.

The Bubba Gump restaurant on Times Square is really amazing. The food is good, the atmosphere pleases the fans of the movie Forest Gump and has a direct view of Times Square.

The place of the restaurant is in the middle of Times Square and if you take a table close to the windows you will have a very good experience. The food is really good but again a bit expensive although the place where it is is amazing. The staff was very friendly.

I love everything about this restaurant. The food is great and I love the Coronarita's and to look out onto Times Square is priceless. The staff are so helpful and question you on the film "Forest Gump" so read up before you go.

Whilst visiting Times Square, the munchies kicked in and we headed towards the bright lights of The Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant. A quick perusal of the menu confirmed that all was ok and we were quickly shown to a window side table. We weren't looking for a blowout lunch, (just grazing, as is our habit) so selected a typical shrimp... More

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.
