Nice spin on seafood

We recently stopped in here for lunch on a short trip to Gatlinburg. I had never eaten at Bubba Gump's before. It was nice and the food was good, just a little on the pricey side for lunch, but then again, seafood is often pricey. Our waitress was very nice as well. They offer a pretty good... read more

So.. I'm torn on this review. At one point we almost walked out, another point I almost flagged down a manager. We had 18 in our party, 9 of which arrived 30 minutes late. The seating hostess who told us we could sit down without the rest of the party developed such an attitude we almost walked out. So besides... More

I was really excited to have lunch here and was going to come back for dinner later that night. However after having lunch we passed on dinner. Every time I visit New Orleans I stop by Bubba Gumps to eat. I was so excited to see one in Gatlinburg but my excited quickly faded once I rec'd my food. The... More

I've had tons of friends go to Bubba Gump's and have great reviews of the joint. However, being from Louisiana, I didn't find that the food was all that spectacular. My girlfriend got the gumbo and it was decent for a restaurant. I got the LT Dan's Drunken Shrimp (with the Bourbon sauce) and it was pretty good. The total... More

I am sorry to say that I cannot remember my servers name, because he did a great job for dealing with a large needy table (10 with 2x 2 year olds!) We had a wonderful experience, the best service that we had in a long week of eating out in Gatlinburg. Try the bucket of boat trash! It was a... More

We loved the shrimp appetizer and our waitress was amazing.Getting in was a bit of a disorganized situation. I got a slush and it tasted awesome. Service was super quick and our waitress was a hoot she got into her job and loved it you could tell.

Not a ton of food, for a whole lotta money. I loved the movie Forrest Gump, my kids love the movie Forrest gump. But $18 for some microwave fries, and a handful of fried shrimp..... Come on.... But it was packed as usual..... Service is falling off as well..... Although I still enjoy the movie trivia!!!!

I hate to write this review because this is our families go to every time we are in Gatlinburg. But this time was just not what we wanted. My husband ordered the Jenny's catch like always and we asked them to make sure it did not get crispy because he can not eat anything tough well it came out so... More

Right in the middle of Gatlinburg, Bubba Gump's is the must-go-to place for all ages and group sizes. We are treated like VIPs every time we go! The food is delicious and the staff is friendly and super well-trained. I love the coconut shrimp the most, but all the selections I've ordered have been excellent!
