Ate at the Bubba Gump with my wife and two teenagers. The view was fantastic -- we saw surfers and sea turtles from our table on the patio.

Bubba Gump's can always be relied upon for some good seafood dinners and friendly service. The setting here, right along the shoreline really makes for a great atmosphere while dining.

Typical chain restaurant. Food is great for the price. View of the bay is worth the visit. The waiter was enthusiastic, to say the least. I guess management wants them to be friendly and helpful with the tourists. This guy was over the top - borderline bi-polar on a very up day. Suggest he tone it down a notch.

The atmosphere at Bubba Gump certainly has youth appeal. No matter that the movie pre-dates some of youth here celebrating a birthday. The restaurant's sea edge location is perfection and having seen two other branches in touristy Breckenridge and Santa Monica pier, no harm there either. The drinks menu, formed as a table tennis bat is novel not just for... More

I live about 45 minutes from this restaurant. Whenever my family is in Kona we always eat here. I have been coming here for years. The food and ambience is excellent. It is always excellent without exception. The location in by the water and you can eat and watch the waves break nearby. I highly recommend eating here. You will... More

Last time we came, Bubba Gump was only open for breakfast on weekends, but now it's open daily. The seafood omelet is awesome. We had it the day we arrived and again the day we left. The two ocean front patios are the perfect place to watch the waves roll in a few feet from your table. Most people don't... More

Decoration and Atmosphere is good, ocean front view is great, but the food taste just about average. Both 2 dishes we ordered( shrimper's heaven and another boiled prawn) are just so-so, any mainland restaurant can do it in same level. It is hard to park on street, and it cost you $5(2 hrs) to park at the building next to... More

The seafood is plentiful in Kona but for a chain restaurant Bubba's does a great job. The best part of the whole place is the atmosphere! The bar staff is second to none. I just wish they had more TV's!

After a long travel day I just wanted a nice meal by the ocean. I happen on Bubba Gump 's. I was seated right by the water, had a great server, a visit from the chef to tell me that a fresh catch had just come in and a lovely meal followed. I really enjoyed myself and would love to... More

Here is a great little place to go, and I go there often with my family and friends. The ambiance is superior, the waves splashing up under the lanai, the Madagascar Olive trees swaying gently in the breeze overhead, and the warm atmosphere of happy people is a true winner. I go there with my children and their children for... More
