This was an eye opener for a couple from "down-under". Great American hospitality and good personal service. The cocktails are really good. The shrimp (prawns by any other name) are prepared and served in all types of dishes to please the palate. Decor typically American, but this is OK. You... read more

Good fast service and fresh seafood. I had a salad with amazing vluecheese dressing that is to die for and a cup of clam chowder. Others with me had the coconut shrimp, cajun shrimp and onion rings. We left full and very relaxed.

They messed up our order, but the kids really liked it there. The view overlooking the Pacific Ocean is great, and we had a great time watching the juvenile green sea turtles in the shallows directly below our table.

I can't stand this place , the floors are so covered in grease and grimy feeling as you walk and the food isn't worth the wait or the price

It's a chain, so you get what you expected. Food was good, not great. Service was decent. This particular location overlooks the ocean, so that's cool. It's located in the center of a major tourist area, so parking can be difficult. If you're looking for a seafood dinner at a reasonable price (for Hawaii), then this fits the bill. If... More

My high school went on vacation to Hawaii from New Hampshire for about 10 days for an extended learning opportunity. We went with approximately 34 high school students and about 10 chaperons. We went to Bubba Gump's restaurant on our last day on vacation, hours before boarding the plane. When we got in, the staff was very kind and went... More

Live in Ohio and have had shrimp in several restaraunts there. Expected Bubba Gumps shrimp to be better than what we have back home. It was very average. My husband had one of the surf & turf selections and it also, was very average. Was told by our server the seafood was shipped in and that was the reason it... More

When we arrived we were told a 10 minute wait - as head of the queue we were also told that we would hardly order our drinks at the bar before we would be seated. Then marched in Ms Japanese tour guide with 29 obedient followers who ignored the stage area waiter and proceeded to seat themselves. As a result... More
