Visited on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was very quiet so wasn't sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by quality of food.

I guess you can't go wrong with this place if you want to eat something that appears to taste good, that is frozen (not fresh) and then deep fried, something loaded with artificial flavors and such. After all how can you expect fresh shrimp in Minnesota when the nearest ocean is thousands of miles away? Still the food is abundant,... More

If you enjoy seafood, this place is closer to 4/4.5 stars. The food and service great. I do not know for sure if they take reservations, but I highly recommend you attempt to make one rather than just stumbling upon it while visiting Mall of America. They almost always seem to have a wait time for a table when you... More

This was only our second Bubba Gump's e perience and the first at this location. We had great service and the food was good, hot and plentiful. We did take advantage of the free WiFi and it was good and stable.

Who would think that a restaurant based on a movie would survive for 20 years? Well, it wouldn't unless it had really good food and service, which Bubba Gump does. The caesar salad dressing was excellent, one of my tests of quality. Everyone in our group of 4 was very happy. The movie stuff is still cute, and not overdone.

The food at Bubba Gump was tasty but not plentiful. I got the stuffed shrimp. There were ten shrimp on the plate. They were small but good and the only sides that were not an extra charge were French fries or coleslaw. For over twenty dollars, I would have expected more food. My wife got a combination of fried shrimp... More

This is fun because of the nostalgia from the movie, but the food is nothing to write home about. The service here was good, the atmosphere was fun, but the overall food quality was just OK. As far as getting seafood at the MOA, this is probably the best option. I would return here for sure, but I wouldn't go... More

This was our first time at this restaurant and there always seemed to be a long line up so we went around 5...it was packed, but the staff is well prepared and very efficient at what they do. Service was very fast and friendly even though it was so busy with lots of kids of all ages.

BGSC is an acceptable option at the MoA if you like seafood. The shrimp mac and cheese is OK but the coconut shrimp are above par. The bahn mi is below par. Somewhat overprices but being in-land and eating seafood has a price to be paid. This is OK for a one time visit. It is unlikely that you will... More
