...and not bad for a chain restaurant! Food quality was quite decent. The place is noisy and packed with groups but that is part of the experience. If that is not for you then better go elsewhere!

The food was good. We had pasta with shrimp of course but the most important is the atmosphere of it. Loads of pics and quotes of the film on the walks, the table,, good music. Very nice staff. This one was the first one of the chain. In front of the restaurant you can seat on a bench and put your own feet in the shoes of Forest Gump. There is his case and his box of chocolates on the bench. Enjoy

If you want to eat some good seafood without the pretentiousness of a fancy restaurant go here. The staff is definitely friendly and the atmosphere is homey and comfortable. We had a bucket of shrimp and it was seasoned and tasted great. My husband said he could have ate just those for dinner they were so good. I had crab stuffed shrimp covered with cheese and that was delicious. I wish we had one of these places in Seattle. Will absolutely go to Bubba Gumps again.

We usually eat here by default after visiting the aquarium, and the tables by the window do offer a nice view, but the service is just so-so.

We stopped here while visiting the Aquarium which is just down the street. Because it was sunny we opted to sit on the deck outside which was lovely. The waitress was very nice. We ordered fish and chips for one of us and the cocumut shrimp for the other. Both were average at best. Too much batter and no taste of the fish or shrimp. My frozen stawberry drink had no taste. Our five year old grandson ordered from the child's menu macarroni and cheese which appeared Ok and was at least nicely presented within a cardboard boat. They did bring paper and crayons for him to color with while we waited without even being asked. Overall, for us, it was a good location, liked the deck but wouldn't go back for the food.
