Service was superb and fun, concept and location great, but the specialty main was all deep fried and not particularly good value.

Standard Bubba Gump food, with reasonable service. What makes this stand out is the location, overlooking the ocean, a great view of the sunset and outdoor seating.

I know its a chain, but had good reviews so we tried it. Service was excellent and food was tasty and prepared wonderfully. We sat right on the water so that was a bonus for this location, to be sure. We had two alcoholic beverages that were prepared nicely. My husband had the shrimp kabobs and all the components (vegies,... More

This place was great! If you get a chance sit outside right on the ocean. Please try the Clam chowder soup and hush puppies, wow was that good! Staff are very helpful and even play trivia games with you. Even have a store so you can buy stuff from the movie.

We where recommended this place, by family, who visited it on the east coast. We where all very disappointed. Food was overcooked, dry and pricey. We had to wait for a table, because they wanted everyone on the deck. We where not given a choice of deckside or inside.

The service was hands down the worst we have ever had in 35 years of marriage. It must gave been the waitresses first night on the job because she messed up the order for three tables and had to get three people to help her figure our change for the bill. The food was nothing more than greasy bar food.... More

Overall, the food here is not made to order. We ordered a pasta dish, a seafood sampler, garlic bread, and salad. The pasta wasn't good. We didn't even bother keeping the leftovers. The seafood sampler was tiny! It looks like it's a decent size when they bring it out. However, the dish consisted of mostly lettuce underneath the fried shrimp.... More

I had dinner here a couple days ago with my brother and parents while on vacation. I ordered jambalaya but it had no flavour, just spicy. I was disappointed. My mother got a salad with shrimps. Initially they forgot the shrimps, and then they brought her frozen ones when she politely reminded them. The rest of the dishes were mediocre.... More
