Visited this location twice on a recent trip to Hawaii (not sure why I went back the second time). The wait staff seem like they are trying to be pleasant but serving tourists is just a little too much for most of them. Sorry guys, but that is what you have in Hawaii is tourists. The food is only passable... More

We sat outside however we walked through the main part of the restaurant to get to the outside patio. All the decorations reminded me of either a Hard Rock or a Planet Hollywood. The food was pretty good but the drinks were expensive. We had a knowledgeable waiter who explained the menu. The kids popcorn shrimp was a good portion... More

Standard Bubba Gump's fare. We had pasta with shrimp. We had a discount coupon from our hotel. Only street parking unless you want to pay for underground parking next door.

An OK fun corporate pretend atmosphere but except for the view you could be in any city USA. Service is passable, drinks are fair, and food is boring. It has the usual Hawaiian fish dishes and Bubba Gump fare. Don't waste your time on this cookie cutter restaurant with an old tried theme. Go to a the Royal Kona Hotel... More

Bubba Gumps has some outdoor seating right next to the ocean. We had shrimp and back ribs. Both were very tasty. Service was efficient. The place had a fun atmosphere without being too noisy.

The restaurant was only two steps from my condo in Kona Islander Inn, downtown. It is magical. The ambiance, especially in the evening, close to the symphony of the waves, and the fire sticks lighten in the air. The service is fantastic! My grandfather owned the best restaurant in south of Poland before, during and after the Second World War... More
