“Not a Fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

Didn't really care for this place. Food was fine but can't say I would go back. Too many other restaurants in the area that are much better.

“Expensive and disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The service was amateurish, the dishes are very expensive and very fat. Everything fried and dripping with oil and even the salad was very disappointing and not tasty

“Great food, atmosphere and location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Good restaurant with sea view. A good menu fitting every taste and a fantastic choice of cocktails as well. The Forrest Gump theme is really well done and makes the place different.
Reasonable price for a restaurant in Monteray with sea view.

“I love Bubba Gumps”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I love Bubba Gumps. The staff was very helpful and I love the trivia questions about the movie. The food was really good and the view of the bay was great. Stop in for a bite.

“The Movie was good, the restaurant not”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

It is kind of cautionary when a restaurant capitalizes on a movie like the exquisite Forrest Gump and then serves deep fried mediocrity. The amazing thing is lik emost of Cannery Row, this place packs people in for probably there one and only time there because it can't be the food. From "buckets" of fried items that have fals, high bottoms and contain much less than than look lik ethey should to the "if a little grease is good a lot is great" attitude to its menu items, I find places like Long John Silver's better for this kind of food at much lower prices.It kind of ruined an afternoon that started so well with the magical Aquarium.
