“Bubba Gump's got Shrimp”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

What can we say other than it was definitely Bubba Gump's, but unfortunately the movie was better. The server was pleasant, but slow. The meal came at different times even though we made a point with the server to please serve it all at once so we could all enjoy the full fare together and share with each other. The Keylime pie was very good, it wasn't Key West, but it was close. If you haven't ever been to Bubba Gump's then please do give it a try, they are all pretty much the same across the country.

“No Repeat Performance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

I can't say that the food was bad or decor anything special. It just did nothing for us. Another chain restaurant with smaller portions and resort prices. Did not care for the service/waiter either.

“Lots of Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This restaurant is a fun place to go with friends and family for the environment. The food is okay. The waitress was not trained very well and was unable to answer any questions we had about the food or alcohol choices. If you go, get the drink with the lights in it. You get to take it home! The gift shop is a good place to shop too.

“Dont waste your money here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We stopped in here without check on trip advisor prior to eating here. There were seven of us who dinned. We each ordered separate food items from the menu. The food was simply horrible. The appetizer was sent back. the service was slow. The only thing good about the meal was the keylime pie.

“Good food, good people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Good location, fun environment, friendly staff and great food. Nothing fancy but not fast food - perfect after a day at the beach! :)
