We ate at Bubba Gump to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed! We found the view of the ocean to be the best that we experienced in Kailua-Kona and was the only restaurant we visited twice during our visit for this very reason. The patio with the sight and sounds of the crashing waves and the... More

Four of us had dinner, one person allergic to fish and shellfish, and the second allergic to milk. Great care and attention was paid to making sure everyone had safe and enjoyable food. The first delivery of the 'non-allergic' food was safe to eat, but a little bland, which was quickly corrected, and everone enjoyed their meals. The high energy... More

This Gump's is better than the one at Navy Pier in Chicago, but still has a ways to go. The food is average, the shrimp aren't very big. There is no such thing as Jumbo Shrimp here. They are on you to upsell tropical beverages and push so-so desserts. The atmosphere is the best part of this place. It's right... More

We ate here on January 12, 2015. Good food and service. Food was over priced, which is typical for this restaurant.

The view was great. Drink was good. Cajun shrimp app was delicious. Main course, meh. Way too expensive. Service was adequate. Save your money and go to a real seafood restraunt while you're here.

I would say this is the best Mussel I have ever met in the states. My wife actually eat more than 20 mussels each time. During our visit at Kona, we actually visited the restaurant a total of four times and every time, we ordered mussels 3-5 courses...

Well organized, efficient, prompt service, food is pretty good but the setting couldn't be better. Right on the ocean. There are no bad tables. A fun place for lunch or dinner. You shouldn't be disappointed.

When we arrived the host was very welcoming and friendly! We had a bit of a wait to sit down as they were only using the balcony for dining (about 12 tables). Our server was very friendly and made a lot of conversation with us! She was informative about the menu and talked a little bit about what to see... More

Great spot by the water to have a drink! Loved the location and service! The calamari was superb as well as the beer. The Majito had to much ice so not too much Mojito. They should cut down on amount of ice!

The host was super friendly which made a great first impression. Our server was friendly and helpful. The coconut shrimp was my favorite from the shrimpers heaven.
