“Good lord that's a lot of shrimp...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Just a quick one - if you're from the UK; A starter is the size of one of our mains- bear that in mind when your tummy is ordering the food.

We went as a couple and had a starter each and a main each. Our starter's arrived on 4 plates each and covered the table. We both ordered something different to sample everything. In the film Forrest Gump, Bubba lists what you can do with shrimp. And they do that, then put it on a plate.

We were both full after half a starter with the groaning feeling that two mains were coming our way with even more shrimp.

Oh yeah, should've said - if you don't like shrimp you ain't gonna like this place.

The mains came and we "forced" them down as they were just as delicious as the starters.

The cost was reasonable and the service was standard. Between each course the server gave us (not just us, everyone) a quiz on Forrest Gump. 3 Questions. I'd love someone to read this review and find 3 obscure facts about the film & turn the questions on them - see how they like it. :-D

I'd definitely come here again, but order a starter between us, 2 mains then have room for a desert. OH, another thing; certain drinks you get to keep the cup it comes in (souvenir style). You take your dirty cup to the Bubba shop next door, they hand you a voucher and on the way out the park, you can collect a clean fresh boxed version of the cup - a great gift / memory.

“Only good thing in city walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went after a day at the parks no wait to get a seat, If you love the movie Forrest Gump then you will love the atmosphere and nostalgia of this place. The service was good and the food was very tasty. I would eat here again,

“If you've been to one Bubba Gumps...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Pretty much if you've been to one Bubba Gumps you've been to them all... If you liked your previous experience you'll probably like this one. It's in a good location, basically on your way out of the park headed toward the parking decks. The service was good.

General comments... The food is fairly good. The serving sizes are fairly large. If you like the movie, Forrest Gump, you'll likely enjoy the restaurant. You'll be quized a little about Forrest Gump, all in good fun. The restaurant is fairly loud, so if you wanted a quiet meal, this wouldn't be your best bet.

“Yuck!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Something has happened here. The service is great. Food is horrible, terrible and very bad. I have given this place a chance 3x. Each time its the same. Im not sure who is keeping them in business. I think they are riding on their former reputation.
DO NOT EAT HERE!

“Amazing veggie burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I came here on a big family holiday to celebrate 20 years since our first trip to Orlando together. As a vegetarian, I'd come to expect plain, unimaginative food from the restaurants in Florida. In Bubba Gumps, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Their veggie mushroom burger is one of the nicest veggie burgers I've had outside of vegetarian/vegan restaurants.The flavours & textures were all perfect! Even my meat-eating, mushroom-phobic sister thought it was delicious!

To top it off, the rest of the group all really enjoyed their seafood and the cocktails were great (if a tad pricey) after a day of wandering round theme parks. A great meal all round.
