Good Food and Great Atmosphere

The people are very happy and friendly. Food was good- but pricey for what you get. Would I go again? No-- I get fresh fish at the market that is better But the Atmosphere is great.

We had a group of 16 at the last minute and the manager was so nice and got us right in and seated upstairs in a pleasant room [they have an elevator]. The food was good and very reasonable. Our waitress [Jere'al] and the other waitress were just great! It was a fun evening!

We had heard of Bubba Gump's for years and finally got a chance to try it out! It was nothing impressive for sure. The shrimp were fresh, but for New Orleans that's not hard to find. Just overall, was not impressed with the food. I will say the Shrimp Mac & Cheese appetizer was quite tasty.

My wife and I came here during a tremendous rainstorm, and I think it ended up being the absolute perfect time to visit since we had full run of the place. It was so quiet you could have heard a dropped cotton ball hit the floor. The restaurant is pretty big, two stories and quite obviously themed after the fine... More

The attitude of the servers and the good food make this a good place for a family dinner. We enjoyed the proximity to the Quarter and the prices of the entrees.

There were plenty of tables upstairs; however they were too short-staffed to seat us there. We were seated outside on the terrace which wasn't so bad but it was a little humid and some bugs flying about. Our server Lawrence was good considering he had to seat, serve and bust his tables. I had stuffed mushrooms and the "Net Catch".... More

Like all Bubba Gumps, there is a waiting line but always worth the wait. Most of the dining is upstairs. There is an elevator. Fun atmosphere. The never ending run of "Forrest Gump" on TV screens. The campy wait staff - "run Forrest run" signs on table, rolls of paper towels for napkins. A total fun experience.

The smells were wonderful outside before we walked into the restaurant. I was happy our wait was only 15 minutes although we were told 25 minutes. Our server was very friendly and even gave us tips on things to do while visiting her city. We skipped appetizers because we wanted to try a dessert. I had the "I'm Stuffed" Shrimp... More
