I guess it was good. It would have better if we had the front tables.

Waiter was good. he was new at it so he had some issues but he tried. Food was good. It was fun doing the trivia with the waiter. Kids loved the gift shop. if you get lucky (I was not) get a table outside all the way to the front. Best views. Take in the scenery.

We ate here twice while in Kona. This was the least expensive meal we had, and the best. They are one of the few chains that do not raise their prices because they are in Hawaii. Their outdoor seating has a great view which allows you to watch the surfers while you eat.

The waiters are amazing, the food is okay. It is quite an expensive restaurant for the food that they serve, but I think that the friendliness and the entire experience as a whole makes up for it. When i say the food that they serve wasnt worth the price, it is because some of the very cheap meals such as... More

While food is ok at Bubba Gump Kona, I would come here for the view. We went at sunset and saw dolphins playing just a few meters from the restaurant deck. And with the big waves, you can see colorful fishes. It's like a live aquarium at sea! When in this island, I would come here again in a heartbeat.

We have eaten at many Bubba Gumps throughout the USA. This one was by far the worst. You would think that they would know how to cook fish and seafood. The food was terrible and overpriced. The wait staff were completely aloof. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We have been to a few other Bubba Gumps previously and not overly impressed (probably because they were airport restaurants). However, this site in Kona was pretty good. Not very busy for a Monday night in July. The 9 of us were seated pretty quickly (we called ahead) and were met by Tom (our server) within a few minutes. Waters... More

We had no wait to get in here, and an excellent server! Tyson was very knowledgeable and what he didn't know he asked about. We all enjoyed our shrimp, except for my one daughter who doesn't eat seafood. The chef substituted chicken which was very nice of him to change, but she wasn't impressed. Great location and view here, would... More

They have an awesome spot right on the water go there just before dark and enjoy the sun going down. Service is good and obviously the shrimp is fantastic. Good family atmosphere. I would go back if that means anything.
