We had the best food! The shrimp mac n cheese was delicious, as were the seafood hush puppies. And the tropical drinks.....fantastic! I know its a chain restaurant but it didn't seem that way. Just good food and good service.

The view was magnificent the food was delicious and our server was amazing! I could have sat there all day just staring out into the Ocean. It was the perfect... More

Food was very good. Had a great view of the Kona Bay. Waitstaff was good. Good food for the value. Table was in a cramped location and a bit rickety otherwise would've given it a 5.

We ordered the shrimp combo and the featured mix and match. The Tilapia was great and so was the shrimp. The server was great. The view spectacular. Definitely recommend Bubba Gump

Good food. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Fun place to eat if your a Forrest Gump fan. They ask questions about the movie. They use newspapers to place your food on. Nice gift shop. Don't eat outside if you don't like birds.

The food is always great, staff was very friendly. They let us change our table to one closer to the view of the ocean. The lady in the gift shop was wonderful and very helpful.

A national chain located amongst a bunch of local eateries, Bubba Gump nevertheless blends right in with its exterior design and seafood offerings.  As with other Bubba Gump locations, the greeter welcomed me to the establishment and directed me to the host, who seated me at a table with a great view of the ocean.  I ordered the sampler platter,...

Not real hep on this place. Too much fried food on the menu and it was so so. It is right on the bay and has a nice view.
