Description: Darling tourist stop for good seafood, fun drinks, special attention to children with cute menu and fun service. Theme is based on Forrest Gump movie. Gift shop is nice...I got a Bubba Gump hooded jacket because we ate on the outdoor patio overlooking the beach and it was so cold that day. Wind blows a breeze through, you might want to bring a jacket if you plan to eat outdoors on a cooler day. I love their seafood and their wait staff is great. Fun kids. There are flip signs on each table that say, "Run, Forrest, Run" if you are fine and don't need anything. If you want ANYTHING, flip it to "Stop, Forrest, Stop!" and the next server who passes your table will immediately provide whatever you need. We asked for a second drink and one of the kids needed crayons to color their puzzle sheet. A little pricey for a group but we are locals and really like it once in awhile. Often go there for a nice lunch with a friend. This place is quirky and makes a great vaca memory.

“Good atmosphere, okay food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Enjoyed the friendly staff and forrest gump trivia. The kids liked getting their meals in a paper boat. The food itself was just okay, nothing special.

“Just so so......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Nothing great here! I had clam chowder and salad. Peel and eat shrimp were good. Tried this place once, that was enough for me. Also thought it was a little pricey.

“Fun place to eat”

We had the spiced shrimp and the Mai Mai with shrimp! Both were very good and the price was reasonable. The drinks were good too!
