“Good not great”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

It was good, nothing to special and exactly what you would expect from a City Walk Restaurant. $5 for bread is a bit crazy and the food was not anything to call home about

“Disappointment ”
Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

Came a couple of years ago and had been impressed but we were disappointed this time. It was very busy so seemed more rushed. The food came out too quickly, we ordered the seafood platters but they all tasted the same and very greasy. Would rush back for the food but the experience is good if you've never been before. Quite pricey too plus they tried to push off the take home glass which we never ordered too, cost over $120 dollars and only had 3 mains and 1 starter!

“Great food and excellent staff”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The BBQ ribs and cocktails are some of the best I have ever had. The staff were lovely and funny. I heard a rumour that they may be opening one in London, fingers crossed :D

“Brilliant Choice”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My partner and I visited Bubba Gump with another couple whilst on holiday and found the place to be terrific with a great service and brilliant food.

We didn't wait too long to get served (Thursday night before Halloween Horror Night) and the table service was excellent.

There was a lot of choice on the menu (although a lot of it shrimp based and I am not a great shrimp / seafood eater) however after ocnfessing this to the server I was politely told I can swap shirmp on any of the menu for chicken. The four of us had a variety of food, ribs, crab, sandwich and macaroni and all the meals were excellent with no complaints, watered down with beer and cocktails, we got to keep a lot of the glasses from the cocktails too.

The themeing inside was brilliant and there was a lot of small touches made to appreciate the Forest Gump film. We were able to take a bucket and fill up with some merchandise after our meal whilst our table was cleared before puddings.

We would highly recommend anyone to make a visit even if your not a shrimp fan!

“run forrest run straight to bubba gumps”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

bubba gumps is a really tasty shrimp resteraunt obviosly if you dont like fish this resteraunt is not for you if you have children that are from 0 - 9 this resteraunt is not for you either if you have kids that are 10 and up this resteraunt is for you. If you have seen the movie forrest gump you will really love this resteraunt. If you want your server to stop at your table they have a sign to say stop here except it says run forrest run or stop forrest stop and if you have seen the movie forrest gump your server might ask you questions on the movie. It was a really good night out but i have been to better resteraunts. :-[ ?
