Chain Restaurant but very good

Right on Alii drive in Kona is Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.. It is a chain restaurant but do not let that stop you. The scenery is quire remarkable. The food is great and the price is comparable to the surrounding restaurants. Be sure to get a seat by the window, there is always some sea life that... read more

The food was really not good. The dishes sound good on the menu, but when you get it, it's really not worth much. Uncooked potatoes and absolutely no taste in the dish. The view was great with surfers in the sunset. The staff was friendly and quick, and the theme is a fun idea, but wouldn't visit again for dinner.

The shrimp was excellent and the burgers were also very good. Drinks a little pricey. We visited the restaurant 2 times while we were in the Kona area and had great service every time.

Fish & Chips from frozen Whiting. Not local and the oil was old. Scampi were good but nothing special. Male server thought he was God's gift to the patrons he was serving. Frankly he is too loud and obnoxiously effusive!

Coconut shrimp and drinks while watching the waves, can it get any better? Oh, yea, strawberry shortcake and more cocktails. Good food, great service, and a wonderful atmosphere.

While visiting in Kona, Hawaii, we saw a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant so we had to stop to eat. This place was fascinating and comes highly recommended by all 3 of us that went. It sits on the ocean, with gorgeous views of the bay & ocean. Sunset was gorgeous. The FOOD was AMAZING> Huge servings, served hot and... More

We went to Happy Hour twice during our recent 10 stay in Kona. The first visit was very pleasant, with good fish tacos (best bargain in Kona) and so-so drinks. The views and service were good. The next time we were not so lucky - Poor service (waited 25 minutes for a waiter and only saw him again when he... More

ideal location right on the water. Can get a table at crushing waves and enjoy a glorious view of the rollicking lapis lazuli wave, local fishermen and Kona while dining on thawed, frozen, processed, shipped from who knows where fish and seafood and vegetables....nothing local served here but the servers, who are slow.....and I don't blame them..... May as well... More

Bubba Gumps was great, it was definitely a tourist attraction in it's self. Go here if you want to learn trivia or if you like the movie. I liked the ocean view and the shrimp. Service was a bit slower, than I would have liked but they warned us they had a party of 43 that sat down right before... More
