If you love shrimp, this is the restaurant for you. If you like the movie Forrest Gump, even better. Bubba Gump is located at Navy Pier, so it is unsurprising that they cater to tourists and are used to handling large crowds. My husband and I decided to try them out because we are members of the Landry's Select Club,... More

We had a nice lunch with family, they have good options if you like shrimp. The staff was friendly and the decoration cool. The kids had a blast with the cool decoration. We would certainly recommend.

Sure it's a gimmick, and it's super touristy, but it's a lot of fun...and there isn't much choice at Navy Pier. The waiters seem to have a good time joking with customers and playing Forrest Gump movie quiz games. The shrimp are indeed tasty and the frozen drinks are refreshing. Don't think about it...just go and have fun.

This places is outstanding for it's history and decoration, and the food is average good. The Young teenagers love the place, but it is noisy for the ones, that came to talk to each other. The service is conceptual and not personal, but it is effective and there is not at long waiting time for drinks, food or special needs.... More

Food was good, service was decent and they had plenty of seating. We had a late lunch and sat outside. Three of us ate Shrimp and had 2 beers and a kids drink it was $93 - so not super budget friendly, but the experience is cool.

There isn’t all that much in the way of food choices at the Navy Pier save for your food court variety fare. There are a couple of full service, sit-down restaurants, Bubba Gump’s being one of them, so we decided to try it – neither of us had ever eaten in a Bubba Gump’s before – just as we were... More

I had never heard of this place until my friend pointed out the sign while we were visiting Chicago. The restaurant is a nice reflection of the movie and the time period it captured. The service was great! Our waiter was knew the drinks and food on the menu and had some good recommendations. The music set a cool ambiance... More

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
