“Good food, reasonable price”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

My friend and I had lunch at Bubba Gump as a break from the Universal Studios theme park.
The restaurant was quiet when we got there and we were quickly shown to our table.
Our drinks order was quickly taken and although we had been to a Bubba Gump’s before, we were shown the system of letting your server know when you needed service (just turn the sign from Run
Forrest Run to Stop Forrest Stop!)
The food was delicious – I had Accidental Fish & Shrimp and my friend the Fish & Chips.
The portions were on the large size for us Brits, but we made a good attempt at finishing!
The only criticism would be the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant, but this may have been because of the time we went in. In other Bubba’s we have had more interaction with the server, with Forrest Gump quizzes, but there didn’t seem to be any of this at the City Walk location.

“Second Visit”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Visited Bubba Gump previously in Miami and after a long day at Universal, decided to try it out at Citywalk. The shrimps were delicious and are most definitely the chain's speciality. Good meal, good atmosphere and good prices. No need to try all the outlets, as the food taste the same at every one, Cajun shimps were delicious !

“Bubba Gump City Walk”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We attended Bubba Gump's at about 7PM on a Friday night .We only waited for approx 5 minutes before we were escorted to a table .The staff were attentive and fast .We had our entrees before we finished our appetizers .Our waiter attended our table and engaged us in a game of Forest Gump trivia .We had a great time .The chowder was comparable to anything I have had in Boston or Halifax .Quite good .I recommend the Shrimp combo .The staff really made our experience .We look forward to a return visit .

“An experience not just a meal.”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

As regular's at Bubba Gump's we knew what to expect but this was probably one of the best one's we have visited in the US. Our server, Zeke was great, a real character who added to the experience. We didn't have to queue and were seated quickly, our food was served promptly and was excellent. I had the shrimp tacos which were really nice but be aware before you order, they are spicy. My wife's pear and berry chicken salad was excellent. The chocolate chip sundae desert was amazing but one was enough for three of us!

“Great for a stop off after visiting the park”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Having visited Bubba Gump after a day in Universal in Florida a few years back without the kids, we couldn't resist but do the same with the kids this time. It didn't disappoint. The waiters were great fun, the Forrest Gump memorabilia added a great touch and although the food isn't the greatest, it's good and especially filling for someone from the UK (although we did have desserts!)

Highly recommended.
