Very centrally located in downtown Charleston near the Market. I know its a chain but they still offer local food that is excellent.

It's a fun place to eat because of the Forrest Gump "connection" - with average restauarant-chain food and a themed gift shop. Service was very good and the outside eating area works well. the food we selected came in huge portions so this is a good place if you're hungry.

Had dinner at Bubba Bump, and what a fun time. Love the décor and atmosphere, and the food and service was outstanding. I don't remember our servers name, but she was fantastic. After dinner we went to the gift shop next door, where again, the staff was terrific. Would definitely go back!

Wonderful shrimp dishes and drinks available walking distance from downtown and right by the market. Great place to relax and have a cool drink or to eat lunch or dinner.

I have been here many times, and at several other locations. It is still an interesting place to go, but not quite worth the cost. If you are looking for good seafood, go to a local place. If you are looking for a fun time, and a different experience then it's not that bad.

We went here for dinner. Our waitress turned out to also be the bartender so service was seriously lacking. I had the fish sandwich and my partner had the po boy. Neither was very flavorful. Very disappointing.

Ordinary seafood. It was noisy inside so we sat outside. Shrimp was okay but nothing special. My husband had the Mahdi Mahdi and said it was good.

Service was perfect food was just ok not as good as we expected. Over all it was o.k. but not more or less.

Thank Johann E
