If you love the movie Forrest Gump or love shrimp and are in NYC, do yourself a favor and stop at Bubba Gump shrimp. The staff is friendly and upbeat. The decor is Bubba approved!

This was the one in Times Square around 43 ST and Broadway. You should not be disappointed with the food or the ambiance.

During our 7 night stay, we ate here twice. The waiters were very good and efficient. I had the mahi mahi fish with prawns it was lovely and very tasty. My husband had the prawns stuffed with crab, gorgeous! Will definitely return. Atmosphere is lovely although be prepared to queue for a bit!

I'd been looking forward to visiting the Bubba Gump in Times Square for a while. I've visited the majority of their US locations, so a chance to dine at a new one and pick up a souvenir in the gift shop is a thrill. The movie trivia is always fun as well.

Then when you walk in the restaurant and walk upstairs, you really get shocked how really big and nicely decorated it really is.The whole restaurant is based on FOREST GUMP, one of the best movies of all time. They sell t shirts, caps... More

Come once a year to New York to see some Broadway and get our fix of Bubba Gump! The staff here never disappoints and we always have a good time. Enjoyed as always. Went to an early dinner and then off to a show, great night and memories as always.
