Oceanside lunch

Staff was very friendly. Food was fine and drinks were good. The hubby's shrimp was a little scant. Don't go there on an empty stomach.

As you it is a chain. I have visited them in many states so food is not a surprise. regular american fare. The best thing about this location is the ocean view. we were there in fabruary and couple of whales were just few hundred yard away. Whales, Sunset and margarita. what more you can ask.

The food was ok. I felt it was overpriced for what you got. Our waitress was not the friendliest at all, either. Stick to the local restaurants in Kona - you'll get better service and more bang for your buck.

I have been to several Bubba Gump restaurants but this one was disappointing. The waitress came over and apologised for the mixed up order, but it wasn't mixed up at all. She then came over and chatted with us while our food got cold. We were short changed when we paid our bill. I wouldn't recommend this place when you... More

Our last visit to Bubba Gumps in Maui was so good we were really excited to find one in Kona. We were so disappointed. The service was not very good. No one explained to license plate signs, none of the trivia they used to do. The food was not very good and the drinks were nothing to brag about. Spend... More

Expect a long wait to get a table. Once seated we waited over an hour for our food to be served. The thing that was so odd was the server kept coming by the table and telling us about the bad decisions the manager always makes. The wait staff bad mouthing the establish became very tiring. If they would have... More

I love the movie Forrest Gump so we decided to go for happy hour. The location is really good - right on the water. But it was all downhill from there. The soft shelled fish tacos were all dried out with sour cream that was thinner than milk. The frizzled onions were a big lump of oily, stringy half-cooked nastiness.... More

We had just flown in to Kailua-Kona from Sydney Australia (after a 2 hour stopover in Honolulu). Being too early to check-in to our chosen resort (at around 11am), we ventured out to the restaurants and shops on Ali'i Drive (tourist strip). I immediately jumped for joy seeing the 'Bubba Gump' sign as we headed down. My partner has never... More

We were walking downtown Kona, early evening, on our first day on the Big Island. We realized were were hungry and as we were passing by Bubba Gump Shrimp, we desided to stop for dinner. This was right on the water and look like a nice place to eat. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We both had shrimp meals and... More
