Love this restaurant so much. Lovely food, great service. Only thing was you had to wait along time to be seated as you can't book and it is so popular. Looking forward to the london one opening this year hopefully.

First time to this restaurant chain and very impressed with food and service. Nice friendly staff and plenty of choice on menu for seafood lovers. Like the signs on tables so you can get waiters to stop. Will return here.

I always enjoy visiting Bubba's when I can. Good food, great drinks and fun workers. It's always fun and a great experience. Mac and shrimp, shrimp scampi, or just a great shrimp salad. Try them all.

I had dinner there twice!! The food is good, we tasted "Shrimper's Heaven" and "Shrimp Shac Mac & Cheese" and "Shrimp New Orleans", everything was tasty and good. We drank Coronarita, I really reccomend it. Each time we spent about 65,00 $ for 2 people.

The restaurant owner(s) certainly went all out with ensuring diners have an 'immersive' experience while eating. Every attention to detail was paid in recreating or referencing the movie from which the restaurant owes its name. Very pleasant staff - almost wished I worked there. Delicious food, great portion servings and you can even take home your glass as a souvenir.... More

If you love Forrest gump, you should go to a bubba gump somewhere. The food is overpriced as you're paying for the novelty. Ive been twice to the new york restaurant and twice to the florida one, all of the visits the food is great tasting. The stop forrest stop sign is a bit weird, as my side of broccoli... More

I came here with my family because we love Bubba Gumps, and have visited many locations. I have to say this one was the far busiest locations I've seen, we expected a wait, but we only waited half an hour which I thought is incredible. I've worked as a host in a restaurant but can't imagine how it must feel... More
