“Feel like your in a movie”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

It is like being a part of the actual movie with all the pictures and things hanging around. I will say, the shrimp scampi pasta could have had less lemon, but over all good. If you eat this dish just ask for them to minus all but 10% of the lemon they add. The drinks are very good as well, just be careful because they are that good. Staff is on top of everything, service is quick and polite.

“Large group”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Reserved their room for a group party of 35. Servers did a great job of keeping orders straight by their method of taking/delivering. Everyone got what they asked for, enough servers for the group, everyone was happy.

“Unexpectedly great!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I knew this was a chain restaurant going in and didn't have high expectations. First of all the employees were all very cheerful, friendly people. It was interesting to look around at the Forrest Gump memorabilia and the waitress made it kind of fun with a trivia test regarding the movie, that kind of surprised me by how much I actually remembered about the movie. The food was outstanding, it had great depth of flavor, they really seasoned the food well. I will definitely go back again the next time I'm visiting there.

“Kind of pricey,But still worth the trip.”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We stopped by bubba gump after a day of shopping at the outlets. The decor is cute, literally everything from the movie was splashed all over the walls, and each area of the eaterie was decorated differently.

The food was expensive for what it was. We had popcorn shrimp, bourbon mahi and the run across American sampler. The sampler in itself had enough food to feed two people, so it was not bad for 13$ and it came with 3/4 different items. The shrimp cocktail was very fresh I might add, and the fried hush puppies with crab was also very tasty.The mahi was a bit more costly, but the serving size was lacking for the price ($18) It was good but disappointing at the same time & popcorn shrimp is popcorn shrimp.

Our waiter was a but pushy with getting us to buy alcoholic drinks, which was irritating. We were having lunch with our two kids and planned to enjoy the rest of the day relaxing, not wasted. &They forgot to give us silverware to eat with.

Mid-meal, they came back with a bit of forest gump trivia and sponge bob trivia for the kids which they enjoyed.

Definitely not one of those "omg we must come back!!!" places, it it wasn't bad either. It's good for the out of towners like us who do not live by the coast or have this restaraunt in our area, but I think I've eaten at better places in the area for much less.
