Though we live in Phoenix, we visit Monterey at least once a year, and Bubba Gump is a perennial choice. Yes, it falls in the same category of chain theme restaurants like Hard Rock or Planet Hollywood, but in my mind, it is a lot more fun. As other reviewers mentioned, the staff is lively, and quiz you with questions from Forrest Gump. The food is above average, though it is priced for tourists, not locals.
We have been to 7 or 8 different Bubba Gump restaurants, and this one and the one on the Santa Monica Pier are the best - I love the ocean view.
