I've been to Bubba Gump before and always enjoyed it. Good selection of food and drinks and this location has a nice patio where you can get a view of sunset.

I love bubba gumps because I love shrimp and boy do they have shrimp!! The restaurant is on the water with plenty of outside seating and views of the ocean. Food is good and big portions, however drinks are a tad overpriced but hey, you are on holiday. The coconut shrimp is lovely and my friend said her burger was... More

Once again, we visited Bubba Gumps while on vacation because this restaurant holds special memories for us and our family from a decade ago when we discovered them. They were so good and so fun back then, however now, from the host outside to the server at our table, this is a VERY average restaurant. There is no enthusiasm and... More

We had the sampler plate for lunch and split it between the two of us because the food was too expensive. We did have the key lime pie and it was very good but I could've bought a whole pie at the grocery store for the same price.

Decent food, Service was fast, but out server stayed and talked with us after our food arrived and it was a bit awkward that she stood there for 5 or 6 minutes after our food was there and we were trying to eat. Our bill with tip was 108$ for two people and we didnt have anything fancy on the... More

We have a Bubba Gump restaurant where we live, but I really liked the one in Kona. We sat out on the deck, and the view was lovely! Staff was awesome and food was good-would recommend this location for a casual dinner.

Food was a waste of time and money. Service was good but the quality and flavor of the food was below par. Food was mushy and mostly very bland. Not recommended for sure.

The food was terrible. We were given our appetizer and entrée together. The appetizer was a avocado type cheese dip with chips that was so dry I didn't even eat it. The entrée was fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob and gravy. The corn tasted like it had been sitting in water all day. The strawberry shortcake was... More
