This restaurant is completely themed after Forrest gump. We went here on black Friday and were seated on a big booth kind of table. You turn the blue and red plates to get the servers attention. Our server was friendly and she explained the menu very well. Other servers came to us immediately when the plates were turned. We tried... More

The server at my table was worst, he was just concerned about his tips. I mentioned that it's my wife's birthday, normally they celebrate a little but this guy did nothing, it spoiled the mood and the evening.

The waiter who served me was quite friendly and attentive and brought my order very quickly but he guy at the front desk was very impolite when I got there. The decor is pretty cool. The food was okay, I ordered fish and chips, the fish was a bit tasteless.

Beer batter fish was 99% batter and rather tasteless. Shrimp was ok, fries good, jambalaya was bland. Service was good.

Bubba Gump shrimp was delicious. Each kid found something to eat on the kids menu and my husband and I found our food to be excellent. Totally worth your visit. We also appreciate the fact that Bubba Gump supports the military. Thank you.

The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is highly, no highly would be an understatement - it is totally inspired by the movie Forrest Gump and specializes in sea food delicacies. :) I can vouch this would stand for one of the best places to gorge on sea food delicacies here. Was here on a crowded Sunday weekend - the reservation had... More

If you like shrimp, this is the place to eat. Though it is located at Navy Pier, this restaurant closes after the others. They also have a great dink menu, as well as the great Forrest Gump theme. I love the Coronarita, a margarita with a Coronita upside down. If you are in a group, order the Shrimper's Heaven, a... More

Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is a great place for children, and it is fun for adults, too. The food is really good, and it is conveniently located at Navy Pier in Chicago. We had lunch on a Sunday. It was busy, but not packed. The service was excellent, and we all enjoyed our food. Highly recommended for great family time... 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.
