“Only good thing in city walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Went after a day at the parks no wait to get a seat, If you love the movie Forrest Gump then you will love the atmosphere and nostalgia of this place. The service was good and the food was very tasty. I would eat here again,

“If you've been to one Bubba Gumps...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Pretty much if you've been to one Bubba Gumps you've been to them all... If you liked your previous experience you'll probably like this one. It's in a good location, basically on your way out of the park headed toward the parking decks. The service was good.

General comments... The food is fairly good. The serving sizes are fairly large. If you like the movie, Forrest Gump, you'll likely enjoy the restaurant. You'll be quized a little about Forrest Gump, all in good fun. The restaurant is fairly loud, so if you wanted a quiet meal, this wouldn't be your best bet.

“Yuck!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Something has happened here. The service is great. Food is horrible, terrible and very bad. I have given this place a chance 3x. Each time its the same. Im not sure who is keeping them in business. I think they are riding on their former reputation.
DO NOT EAT HERE!

“Amazing veggie burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

I came here on a big family holiday to celebrate 20 years since our first trip to Orlando together. As a vegetarian, I'd come to expect plain, unimaginative food from the restaurants in Florida. In Bubba Gumps, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Their veggie mushroom burger is one of the nicest veggie burgers I've had outside of vegetarian/vegan restaurants.The flavours & textures were all perfect! Even my meat-eating, mushroom-phobic sister thought it was delicious!

To top it off, the rest of the group all really enjoyed their seafood and the cocktails were great (if a tad pricey) after a day of wandering round theme parks. A great meal all round.

“Bubba would be Proud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

As we had seen them everywhere on our trip we decided to try the one at the theme park and glad we did. Our theme park experience continued into Bubba's. We had trivial pursuit, gump-style, with our waiter which was a lot of fun. Travelling from Australia our group so enjoyed the "performing waiters", themeing and large portions and delicious taste. Even though one of our parties fries were cold he could not have cared less. The onion rings and serving style was good and fun. Everything was tasty and we loved the strawberry short-cake, gump-style.
