We saw the sign, laughed and had to eat here. The food is good. It is a pub style cuisine with the laid back atmosphere that you would expect from a laid back island. Service was great, food was wonderful and the fun we had was memorable. Stop in at Bubba Gump Shrimp co. You will have a great time.

We always go to Bubba Gumps and always enjoy our meals. Great view and friendly staff and good service. Good place to take kids and enjoy the view while you eat dinner or lunch.

We recently celebrated our anniversary at Kona, Hawaii and picked this place for an early dinner. Simply awesome time. Food was good and having it right off the beach at sunset is icing on the cake. Great location, friendly staff and free parking is available at the Farmers market across the street. We happened to be there the day before... More

We had been told to try Bubba Gump Shrimp and I must say my wife and I were pretty disappointed. Besides everything being related to the movie that you know (hence the reason you come here) this place has the feel and taste of a red lobster. The food is so-so and I feel a little overprices relative to other... More

Burger was very good. View was of the bay with people surfing right in front of us. The view from the deck is great and the food and menu is average. The weather is usually very warm and with humidity, the breeze feels real good.

We had lunch here in the Iron Man week and where totally thrilled with our experience, the guy that served us (so sorry that I cannot remember his name) was totally top class, attentive, warm and friendly, this was by far the best service in Kona and really one of the best I have ever received, this guy has really...

The view on the ocean is spectacular, especially dining on the patio. Bubba Gump are all over the world and this one is very special. There are lots of Forest Gump memorabilia as expected, everyone is friendly, an happy, and the food is really quite good. Since there was four of us we all tried something different and then shared... More

This is a tourist place for sure, but entertaining for kids and adults alike. I only wish the food were better. Strong emphasis on fried foods which my tummy doesn't like, but your server will work with you to find something else you can eat. Efficient service, right on the waterfront, it's always good for a quick meal.

Full of Forest Gump memorabilia (as you'd hopefully expect), the wait staff were friendly- all asking us if we'd enjoyed our meal or if we needed anything. Lovely venue right by the water. As a tourist it was somewhere a bit different and fun to dine, and the food was very tasty. We rolled ourselves out after not being able... More
