We had dinner here. We sat on the deck overlooking the ocean. Bubba Gump is a chain so you get the consistency with the food and the drinks. Everything was good and enjoyable

One of the best water views in Kailua-Kona. Service is very good. The food is as good as you get. If you are in Kailua town for a few days, you should visit and eat.

On the way back from sightseeing we stopped at Bubba Gump and had dinner. The meal was excellent and inexpensive. I had the fish of the day. I don't remember what kind of fish it was but it was good. And they didn't skimp on the alcohol in the drinks. Over all it was a nice place with nice views... More

I kind of like the food at this chain. The drinks are fun the staff is fun it's just a great experience. It's kind of mid priced but not the best food in the world but definitely good food and a fun time for all. If you go here Order The Bourbon Street mahi mahi and shrimp and you will... More

We had a fabulous server who was very attentive. We started with a Lava Flow (delicious) and a root beer (my hubby liked it). We ordered the mac and cheese appetizer. It came out hot and bubbly. One bite and I was in cheesy heaven! :) I also had the shrimp tacos. They were a bit spicy, but not too... More

The meal was spectacular and these guys don't mess around with portions when it comes to deserts either! 3 of us had 3 different items for each course of the meal and none was any less amazing than the other. But what really impressed us was the service! Our waiter, and young local, was not only a great server but... More

The folks at Bubba's were polite and had fast service. We were headed out of Kona on a flight, and they handled our party of 14 quickly at dinner. We did call for a reservation. We were seated outside by the ocean which was a little hot and humid, but tolerable with the breeze. Food was excellent. No complaints from... More

Food was average. Was unable to get our group of 13 all setting together and split us into 3 different tables. Was confusing to waitress getting ours checks split into each different family and then still messed them up. Average food, average service.
