“An enjoyable dinner”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We've been here at Daytona Beach several times, but have never eaten Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., even though we walked there with it connected to the Wyndham which we often stay at. It was more than just a been there done that experience. The food was actually very good - Bourbon Mahi Mahi for me and Coconut Shrimp for my wife. Both were prepared perfectly, with a nice presentation on the Mahi as well. The coconut shrimp presentation was a little crude served on an aluminum plate covered with a paper that resembled a newspaper was different yet adequate. And yes as has been stated the size of the portions are not large, but to me if eating till you're stuffed is what you want, then find a ten dollar buffet. As for me this was just what I wanted and we will go back.

Friendly staff with an awesome bartender named Bobby! He was entertaining, polite and did a fantastic job. Owner should be proud of him!
We were greeted, seated and fed within minutes. It was very busy each time we visited, but everything ran smoothly. Shrimp dishes were tasty and worth every penny!! Food was not expensive, by the way.

“Good food and fun at Bubba Gump's”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

Bubba Gump's in Daytona Beach is a great for lunch or dinner while visiting the beach and boardwalk area. The wait staff were extremely friendly and reasonably efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed with a bit of fun on the side. There is even a gift shop on the premises for Forrest fans to pick up a few souvenirs. My friend and I were both well satisfied with our lunches of fried shrimp and the wonderful grilled shrimp and veggie skewers. Several desserts are offered for those with a sweet craving. The key lime cheesecake which is large enough to split with a friend is a tasty way to end the meal.
I would be happy to sample a few more meals here on a return visit. If I am lucky maybe I will get seated again at a table with that fabulous ocean view.
