We visited Bubba Gumps for the first time while on vacation in Galveston. The food was delicious! The service was great! It was very crowded, but we had a limited wait time and attentive service once seated. I don't know if this is typical but...More

This place can be incredibly busy based on its location, but it's a nice place to go for lunch or to get out of the heat when you are at the beach or the pier.

Food was delicious and staff was professional. We enjoyed ourselves on the Boardwalk. The Shrimp lived up to it's name.

The food was great and the view was fabulous. When it’s not too windy, the outside seating is perfect. It’s a little pricey, but I expected that from a commercial restaurant.

The forest gump game questions are fun and the kids loved the coconut shrimp. If you sit outside the views and breeze is great!! Not a local spot but a great place to eat if you want a ton of options for shrimp!!

We chose Bubba Gump's mostly because of the location on the pier. We were in the top level looking out onto the seawall area, and it was a perfect view! Our waiters were fine; seemed busy, and the food was ok for a chain. We'd...More
