My friends wanted to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, a chain restaurant. I ordered the Mahi Mahi ($23.99). The restaurant was somewhat empty on this Sunday late afternoon. Still, the food took quite some time to be served four basic dishes. My food was...served warm, but not hot. The plate was loaded with mash potatoes. There were two relatively small pieces of mahi mahi and three small shrimp. Everything was tasty and delicious. The fish was cooked nicely. No vegetable was served with the fish and potatoes. No rolls or bread was offered with our meal. Overall, it was a mixed bag for a $24 plate.More

Ehh, not much to brag about truly. I enjoyed the Shrimp Scampi enough to eat it. I sent back their blue version of a Long Island Iced Tea and the cheesecake was nothing special. It’s a chain restaurant so that sums it up...

Cosy restaurant with friendly & funny staffs. We enjoyed very much the food, the decoration (Forest Gump), as well as the funny waiter who took good care of us.

Absolutely fantastic. A bit of a wait but well worth it. Incredible table location and views out of the window. Food was delicious and the service super fun. Highly recommended.

This place is absolutely awful, and I would not recommend wasting your time and money here. I ordered a salad, and was expecting a decent plate of lettuce and other vegetables, and then I saw the waiter bring me MICROSCOPIC plate of just lettuce. I...was appalled. NEVER returning to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. On top of this, our waiter and the manager were both VERY rude after this fiasco. Y'all make me sick.More

I'm not a fan of fast food but a friend in Los angels orange county advised me to try this restaurant and we did. Menu is nice and shrimp quality is better than average.

Meal: We ordered traditional dishes and I don't regret it. Environment: relaxed and calm. Service: Very good service and polite. It is very cool. I just didn't buy any gifts from the store below because I had no money.

I ate at the bar as the wait for tables were long. This was Valentines night. So we waited awhile for food. Cocktails were great. The bar staff was very lovely and welcoming. Food was good.

Love it! If you are fond of Forrest Gump and shrimps, this is the right place to stand by for a yummy lunch just in front of Broadway. Please mind to reserve before, they are always fully booked

My sister is a BIG Forrest Gump fan and this place was on her bucket list to visit. Needless to say, it didn't disappoint. The decor was so cool with a lot of quotes and memorabilia all over the walls. Our server was so kind!...She could tell we were from the UK based on our accents and explained the menu to us, recommended dishes etc. We had the surf & turf which was delicious! We also had strawberry lemonades drinks. Some drinks on their menu (if purchased) allows you to take the cup home with you! Mine had a button operated flashing light at the base which was so cool. Plenty of photo opportunities, the staff were really upbeat and attentive. Food service was quick and was reasonably priced. Will definitely recommend for some comfort food and if you love shrimp!More

Hi I don't think they take reservations you just go in an wait for a table so early evening or late afternoon are best times to try for a table but well worth the wait enjoy Xx

We went through Ticketmaster to buy our tickets. We saw The Lion King, School of Rock, Dear Evan Hansen and Hamilton. Broadway tickets are expensive by any standards. We spent an average of $250 to $450 per ticket. In Times... More
