Great location.

If you want to eat and watch some waves then this is a good spot. Gift shop was great for someone who loves the movie. Got a free hurricane glass with 30$ purchase too.

First review I have ever written. But the food at this place was inedible. No quality standards to let it be served. Nice location taking up prime real estate that someone else could use. Ordered take out. Seafood hush puppies tasted like rotten fish. Spit them out. Steamed shellfish platter. Was cold and tough. Muscles and clams like cold tasteless... More

Anytime i order a meal and it comes out 5 minutes later I question whether a microwave was used. For what I paid I am being very generous giving this review a 3 out of 5. The savior was the view which was fantastic and the service which was great using the funny table sign.

Despite the average food, the view is beautiful. You have to park around 400 meters away at public parking. Get there no later then 6:30pm or you will have to wait for a seat.

The food was very good, but the real star was the memorabilia and movie tie ins. Our wait staff was okay. We had the bartender as our waiter. Don't know if this is common practice, but our service was slightly slower than other near by tables. The view of the harbor made the extra wait pass quickly. Glad we were... More

The service was great and its a very fun atmosphere. We had a terrific Oceanside table. I thought my food was very good but my husband thought his was just ok. The prices are comparable to every where else.

Had a fantastic waiter, Tyson, he was hilarious!! My family loved their food, fish and chips, clam chowder, fried shrimp and appetizers. I had the salad with shrimp, it was recommended on the menu but it was a let down. We also had some drinks yet they were lacking in alcohol...overall a fun experience with an awesome view!!

We visited Bubba Gump's on a Wednesday night and got seated quickly next to the ocean. The drinks were served quickly followed by our dinner. The food was good and worth the price. Our wait staff was very nice and accommodating.

Lava Flow cocktail is VERY good. My husband and I were here for Happy Hour, great way to try different appetizers. We ordered fish tacos (okay), hush puppies (I didn't look like - bland), onion strings (hubby's favorite), and popcorn shrimp (my favorite). Regular menu prices are lower than other restaurants in the neighborhood b
