I had the Forrest Gump Fried Special. The fish was great and the tartar sauce was really good. They give you 3 pieces of fish, 4 shrimp, fries, and 4 hush puppies. The hush puppies were kinda weird as there was corn and possibly fish...More

The view was the best thing about this restaurant being that it overlooked the Gulf Of Mexico. Other than that it is kinda what you should expect a chain restaurant to be after 20 years. Portion size has gone down slightly but service was good...More

Food and drinks were very good. Nice area to eat and talk and to see the ocean. Meal for three with some drinks and starters was $150. Could do it cheaper. Expect to pay $20 person easy without starters.

Took our grandkids on a cruise and the night before we ate at Bubba Gump Shrimp co on Pleasure Pier. The food was okay, very average, pricey, but good. The staff, view and fun atmosphere made it a good time. They sell some souvenirs there...More

The atmosphere was awesome, sitting on the boardwalk over the ocean. However, the food was pretty ordinary. The shrimp didn't taste fresh and the seasoning was fairly plain. As we looked out the window to look out at the ocean, a wharf rat ran by...More

Exactly what I was expecting. Being a fan of the movie and having never been there, we decided to give it a try. It wasnt bad, it wasnt great. Food and service average.

Always a pleasure to lunch at BG's from San Diego to Miami. Seso wine was a surprise treat. Keep up the good food, good service, and fun atmosphere. We'll be back.

I'm sorry I don't know if they allow pets on the patio. I don't think you can have any pets in any restaurant in the US due to Health Dept. Inspection guidelines. I've been to restaurants in Dallas with pet friendly patios... More
