“Don't be put off by the name”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This is a very good restaurant. The setting right by the inlet was beautiful and entertaining. The servers are a bit hokey but you get past it. The food selection was not extensive but justly satisfying.

“Maybe the worst ever!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I have never worked in a restaurant but I have eaten in a great number and visited many more and this may be the worst restaurant experience ever. I booked a reservation for 10 outside on the deck where the view is very interesting. We arrived on time at 5:30 pm and had all our orders for drinks and meals placed within 15 minutes of arrival, we received our drinks promptly and then shortly after the appetizers arrived. After waiting patiently for close to an hour we asked about our dinner orders and the response was not exciting, we were offered trivia questions to take our mind off our dinners, I approached the manager to ask if they could help satisfy our party and the only answer I got was that they would comp our entire order. Some might find that acceptable but then they started to deliver some of the meals but couldn't deliver all the orders. We finally gave up and walked out in disgust at the poor service and lack of concern for our dilemma, good news was we went to another nearby restaurant and were promptly served and treated to a great meal by a warm and considerate staff

“The View was Magnificent, Service Terrible, Food So-So”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

It was worth it to sit on the deck in the evening and see the lighthouse so close. But, we shouldn't have bothered with dinner. Our server was inattentive and didn't come to take our order (and they weren't particularly busy). The food was OK. Wish we'd just gotten appetizers or dessert to enjoy the view and gone elsewhere for dinner.

“Bubba Dump”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

I have been to Bubba Gump Shrimp in Hawaii, New Orleans, New York, Orlando and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The Jupiter site was a huge disappointment. The fish and chips plate should have been called "fish sticks and chips". There were five thin strips of fried batter on top of french fries. The garlic shrimp appetizer consisted of itty bitty shrimp barely cooked in what they called "garlic butter." We asked for bread (which we had to pay for) was stale. The mixed drinks (@12.00) a piece appeared to be alcohol free.

On a positive note, our server was attentive, friendly and fun.

I would not recommend the Jupiter location. If you want to eat at a Bubba establishment, drive to Ft. Launder dale.
