“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

It is what it is. Good fun but a bit tacky and overpriced. Worth doing once with the kids. Food average and you can get better in Monterey

“Fun place with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

It was a great, fun restaurant to go to, however a bit noisy if you want something more romantic - however they do have great margaritas!

We enjoyed the food - but there are few other choices if you don't like shrimps. I had the Clam Chowder and loved it!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Crowded, noisy, but so much fun! Good food, entertaining wait staff. Lots of trivia about the movie Forest Gump.

“It Could Be SO Much Better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

This place has such a great location and looks so cute I was looking forward to eating there. But the place was SO noisy we had to shout just to be heard. We had preschoolers and they spent the whole meal with their hands over their ears because of the noise!! Views were great of the ocean but the food was very mediocre - very disappointing. The wait staff wasn't very attentive. Kinda acted like they just wanted to get you fed to get the next group in. And yes, it is right on Cannery Row in a very "touristy" area.

There are so many places nearby that are SO much better.

“Been there, done that”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is the fourth Bubba Gump location we have eaten at. We had lunch there at the request of our son who enjoys the decor & atmosphere. The food was predictably just ok and priced a bit high. We were glad to learn that this was the first Bubba Gump restaurant to open and it justified the fact that we were eating there. The servers were all very nice and friendly.
