“Great view, great atmosphere, friendly service, best Margarita!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Excellent place for dinner and a sunset! Fun atmosphere. Friendly and comical servers. Located right on the water. Our food was out quick and the waitress was attentive. The shrimp was delicious and the Medal Margarita was to die for...the best Margarita I've ever had. Will most likely be back again before we head back to the mainland.

“"Good food, brilliant views"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

The shrimper's net catch to start was tasty we opted for the Garlic spice. The mains were quick in being served however my husband's was cold and we sent it back. A fresh dish was brought out with no hassle.

The waiting staff were entertaining and very helpful, make sure you know your Forrest Gump movie knowledge.

The views are amazing in this restaurant considering how relatively cheap the food is.

“Great location and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

We met our son here for dinner. We just arrived in Maui and he was leaving the next day. Usual extensive Bubba Gump's menu. Sometimes it seems like too much to pick from. Service was very good, waitress was very attentive and had a pleasant personality. Bubba's is noisy so don't expect a quiet dinner. The atmosphere is like the rest of the Gump chain with lot of Forest Gump
items all over the place. A fun evening. Street parking is luck of the draw without much luck. Public parking is available but not real close. Ocean view is tops.

“Good Food, Awesome Views”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

If you want a truly awesome Hawaii view while dining , GO HERE! For what I consider us to be as Bubba Gump restaurant connoisseurs, it was just okay as far as food. We still have issues with it being themed after a movie and person who drank Dr. Pepper nonstop during the movie yet they don't serve it (some issue between Pepsi and BG we hear but not sure of details). Saw several huge crabs crawling up and around the rocks as the waves whished by them which was nice; water and boat view nice too. I'd perhaps suggest just drinks and perhaps an appetizer like the spinach dip and chips rather than a full meal to get the experience but not have to spend too awful much.

“Fun and unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

After reading prior reviews, I did not know what to expect. It's a fun novelty restaurant that is over the top. My partner and I stopped in for lunch after doing the circuit of shops of Lahaina. I had the shrimp (prawns) three ways and loved it. We also shared a salad. The waiter, had this trivia contest going and was running up the isle asking questions about Forrest Gump etc...It was fun and made for a great afternoon. I would go back again
