We had a variety of food. We had a shrimp pot with the garlic butter. So GOOD! I wish we got the large one. I had the fried fish sandwich. Fish was great, really enjoyed the sauce. My sister in law got the far out dip, was also very good. Kids enjoyed their Mac and cheese. Great fun atmosphere.

My mom sister and I ate here for their coconut shrimp. It was delicious. Don't forget to look for the bench outside where Forest Gump sat while waiting for the bus with his box of chocolates.

Excellent beach side restaurant with excellent choices on drinks and food like the coconut shrimp is an excellent choice. You can sit outside and view the ocean all while you eat and have drinks or you can sit inside in the cool A/C if you been out in the sun all day.

I'm a huge Bubba Gump fan with a bucket list item to visit as many Bubba Gump restaurants around the world as possible. This was my second visit to the Fort Lauderdale location. It's right on the beach, so weather providing, get a table outside with a lovely view of the ocean, and it's much quieter outside. Love the food...especially... More

I made all our reservations and arrangements via email prior to our visit. Ligia helped me choose menus and get the right location inside the restaurant for our dinner. She did an excellant job spelling everything out and making sure nothing was forgotten. Upon arrival she was not there that weekend but the manager took very good care of us.... More

Nothing special. If you have been to one you have been to them all. Great beach side views though made the mediocre food tolerable.

I've visited this chain from Hawaii to Florida and this one is very laid back. Noise of street traffic high. Food/menu same as others

We come here all the time. The food is always good. They have an indoor and outdoor seating area. There usually isn't a wait. Parking is just a few blocks down the street. The dixiewich fish sandwich is really tasty. It's my son's favorite. (9 yrs old) I love their veggie burger. Made with loads of mushrooms. Shrimp of course... More
