While the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company is located on the Pleasure Pier in Galveston there are remarkably few seating areas with a view of the beach or the gulf. The food was generally good, in particular the shrimp dishes are very tasty. I had to...More

Almost my entire family were in Galveston for the 4th of July week. We stayed just two blocks for Bubba Gump Shrimp so of course we had to go. We ended up eating or meeting for drinks there 4 different days of our 7 days....More

Over priced for average seafood. Don't seem to have their act together. First and last visit. Should have gone to Fish Tales again instead.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co on Pleasure Pier is good but not great I feel like the Pier is a little over priced but the food was good and came out quick

Good place to grab some food if you are hungry in the middle of afternoon but not an exceptional location. Food is OK, service is fine. In the pure tradition of the others Bubba Gump restaurant across the country nothing more nothing less.

Shrimp anyway you like it....I enjoyed my visit to Bubba Gump. It is attached to the pleasure Pier and easily accessible. Park just across the street and if I remember correctly they will validate your parking ticket.

This venue matches perfectly with the pier-beach-summer mood. Galveston was hot and not crowed, so it was delightful. I was impressed by the huge numbers of assosiates, even in very slow-business week day. Food & drinks: Bubba avarage style.

Went on Tuesday, June 7th and was sorely disappointed. Mind you, we loved the movie and have had great service in other locations. They were hiring new servers and training them that night. There was a sign outside saying immediate interviews". Not a good omen....More

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
