4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stopped in for a early dinner at around 5:00 pm and restaurant wasn't busy yet. Service was good but kitchen was slow. Restaurant was clean. Everyone in my party of four was satisfied with their meals especially the shrimp and grits, delicious. Would recommend.

Stopped in and had some draft beer at the bar and we split a "blue Hawaiian". That was a strong beverage so I'm glad we split it. Rich was our bartender and was still training. He was a nice guy. Bubba's is fun and we usually eat dinner there but we got a late start this time. We will go... More

Seated pretty quickly, the food was great. Kids enjoyed the place, especially the stop forest stop sign for when anything was needed. The service was lacking a bit, seemed to wait a while for everything. But great experience!

I know it is a chain but we really do love this place... My children love the kids menu options and the boat "Jenny" it gets served in. They also really like the free jello included! We had shrimp and fish & chips and really could not go wrong. The food was excellent quality and served hot. Our poor server... More

It is a relaxing experience and a cool rest from the heat. They have a variety of choices on the menu, something for everyone. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They were there when you needed them or had questions, but gave you time to enjoy your meal. If you are a Forrest Gump fan you will definitely enjoy.

Went here with a large group. The staff was patient and friendly and included Forrest Gump trivia. The food was good for a chain type restaurant. The food is pricey. Expect $18 on average for an entree, although cheaper can be found. Be aware of the souvenir cups which are greater than $4. Probably would not return simply because it... More

The food was better than what we expected but the service was very slow. Nice place to go if you want to get out of the heat for awhile

My husband and I had a "snack" here after our ghost walk. We chose this place because we only wanted an appetizer and a drink and this place has an awesome patio. My husband had the thai shrimp which was fried shrimp with a creamy sauce on it - I thought it was good but the sauce was a bit... More

Best part of Bubba Gumps was the kids meals. The kids left happy because they loved the paper boat and make your own sundae's, finishing off the meal with duck races. The adults did not like bubba Gumps because although it was slow inside the food service was even slower. We arrived just a little after 2pm and did not... More
