“Great spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Not super cheap, but great location. Food was really good. Good service, but server was hard to understand. He was sweet, but strong French accent. Fun gift shop to explore.

“Its fun, quirky, food isn't the best but not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I did enjoy the food here but its just a bit expensive for what it is.

I had fish and chips and it was ok.

What was good was the drink, i had a Run Forrest Run smoothie and it was really, really nice but it was $4.99 which is quite expensive for a soft drink in my opinion.

The service was good and the little Forrest Gump quiz at the end was amusing but didn't make up for the food.

“GREAT BUBBA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Bubba Gump chain is always good food and a great atmosphere. This Bubba Gump also has a great view and a great location as it sits on the amusement pier.The shrimp was great, the fish and chips were great. And the service was very fast and very good. Now Galveston has a great restaurant to go to.

“Stay away from Bubba Gumps”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Now I stay away but if you want to be able to say you ate at bubb gump's then by all means give it a shot! But my personal opinion is that the food is WAY WAY overpriced. Atmosphere is good. Just for 25 dollars I received 6 shrimps and a cup of white rice and that is it! NOT WORTH THE MONEY! But pleasure pier is a blast as well as being overpriced to though! But at least there you can have ALOT of fun!
