“Fun, fast, delicious and perfect for dinner from Universal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children, spending a day at Universal during spring break. We got a table right away- they don't take reservations but if you get there around 5:30pm, you should get a spot no problem. The service is friendly and fun. The food is delicious- my kids ate popcorn and tempera shrimp and someone had the gumbo, which was a nice non-fried alternative. A little pricey, but good quality food conveniently located at Universal. I would not make a separate trip just for the restaurant, but if you are at Universal, it makes sense.

“Best in universal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Was very pleasantly surprised @ how good the food was here. We had the heavenly shrimp, it was shrimp done 4 different ways. We split it and we were both full when we were done. The staff was a lot of fun. When you need something you flip a sign and someone is immediately there helping you. Even though the bill was high, I felt it was worth it. The food was that good.

“Unusually Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

We've been to several Bubba Gumps and this is the first time we were disappointed in the food and service. The food came out in dribs and drabs. It also came out incorrect and had to be sent back. The wait staff literally would look up as the passed tables asking them to stop. In the end one of us ended up physically ill from the food and 2 ended up with upset stomachs. We won't be back any time soon.

“Fun atmosphere, good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I took my son here for his 21st birthday dinner along with my two daughters. We dined around 5 p.m. on March 28, 2013. The restaurant wasn't very crowded and we were immediately seated. Our waiter was very attentive and got us everything we needed. He asked us several "Forrest Gump" trivia questions before our meals arrived. Only stumped us on one. ;) We ordered onion frizzles as an appetizer and they were good. Our food came to the table quickly. My son ordered the Jambalaya which he said was good, and very spicy. I had the tilapia with mashed potatoes and shrimp and a lobster butter sauce. It was extremely good! One daughter had a Southern fried fish sandwich, the other fish and chips. Both said the fries were fantastic and they both really enjoyed their fish. We were full and opted to skip out on dessert. My only complaint? We paid $3.25 for a Pepsi. Yikes!
