Hawaii's version of a chain

Located right on the water, the views and atmosphere are great. The food is a bit better than other Bubba Gump's we have tried but nothing to rave about. The restaurant stands on its name and if you would like to get a picture on the bench with a "box of chocolates" they have that too.

We love the location here - right on the water! On our honeymoon, this was a different restaurant and we enjoyed several meals here, so it holds special memories. But now it's Bubba Gumps...audible sigh. Went for Happy Hour and got the Blue Hawaiian - nice large glass but very weak on the alcohol. Tried the Calamari - ok, but... More

Bubba Gumps is located right on the ocean! That is the highlight. While the server was friendly, the food was just average. Typical fried, greasy seafood. Not worth a second visit.

We visited here with guests from the mainland. The ocean view was spectacular and the server was especially friendly. The stuffed shrimp is a must or if you prefer a variety the shrimp lover meal is awesome also. Not everything is deep fried so there is a selection for everyone.

We loved our Bubba Gump evening - the food was excellent, the staff were efficient and friendly and the location was lovely. Not your average 'chain' restaurant - we loved it.

We had a great time eating & drinking at Bubba Gump's in Kona! The food is very good - we like the coconut shrimp, stuffed shrimp, Mama's Chicken, and the Shrimper's Heaven! And the drinks are really good. Go during happy hour from 3-5pm for great deals on drinks & pupus!

We visited for dinner on the first night of our stay in Kona. The staff at the entrance were unprofessional, choosing to finish their casual conversations with each other rather than attending to their guests. Never-the-less we persevered and were eventually shown to a table. Being a themed restaurant we should have been better prepared but managed to answer the... More

Were there twice in our 10 day stay. Love the homey feeling patio. Food was good. Food was hot! Coffee was lukewarm the first time, the 2nd time we told our waitress what happened the previous time and she made us a fresh pot, and the coffees were on the house!
