“Fun, great venue.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

This was our first visit to a Bubba Gump Shrimp and we had a great time. It was very busy so we asked if we could wait at the bar. A table became available after 20 mins which was how long we were told we'd have to wait. I loved the venue itself, right on the water in a character filled building with a tree growing through the centre of it. We enjoyed our meal (good shrimp, nothing amazing but definitely enjoyable) and the Mojitos were great. Our server was excellent. Overall a fun meal in a great location for a couple of tourists having a good time. We went for the novelty value more than anything else and enjoyed it.

Great place to enjoy cold beers and yummy seafood.Only downside is that it closes fairly early for my liking.

“Bubba Gump Shrimp Co - don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

We visited this place while honeymooning in Lahaina. It was so disappointing. People queue out the door - I don't know why!! We got lucky and didn't have to queue. We walked over a greasy floor and were seated near the ocean, which was great to listen to. Our food was ordered and took over an hour to get to us. The waiter while nice didn't offer a comp drink, we had to pay to wait. He did apologise and said that the 'kitchen went down' and that was all. The food when it arrived was very very average. When it came to offering dessert, he said 'I wouldn't bother it will probably take two hours', and he was probably right. We were happy to leave.

“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

We had drinks at Bubba's a couple times and ate once during our trip to Maui. We've been to a number of their restaurants on the mainland, and we tend to find this chain fairly consistent. We had a great time with the bartenders and servers who were all prompt, courteous, and full of energy! The food and drink was above average and the location and view was awesome! A great fun filled atmosphere. You can unwind and have a great time.
