Above average food, and much better than you'll find in Universal; it is a walk from the front of the park though. 6 of us dined and had a drink for $175.00. Accidental fish and shrimp was very good. Stick to beer instead of their fancy mixed drinks. Enjoyed the trivia about the movie, and seeing it play over the bar. Would eat dinner there again. Starbucks afterwards nearly next door is a bonus.

Always enjoy the food atmosphere and cocktails here and it was a pleasure to eat here again with family after a day in the universal parks Great variety of seafood with alternatives if your not in the mood servers are friendly and informative love the buzzin atmosphere One tip be careful when ordering drinks our bill was larger than expected due to drinks being supplied in fancy take home glasses This happened a few times in different places this holiday

Our family was headed out of the park and always heard of their food and decided to try some, the food was reasonably priced for an amusement park,I tried the three kinds of shrimp and the remoulade sauce was to die for!

After our day at Discovery Cove, we went to Bubba Gump Shrimp Company at Universal City Walk for dinner. A quick tip for FL residents is that parking at CityWalk is free after 6PM so have those licenses ready when arriving at the parking entrance. For a Saturday night in the middle of Holiday Season, the wait for two was 25 minutes which is very reasonable. The server was very good and one of their "things" is they will throw some Forrest Gump Trivia at you during the meal for fun. While the server is assigned to the table, they work as a team using a unique "license plate" system that calls attention to your table from any passing server. The menu had a large variety of dishes and was very tasty and the price range was typical for CityWalk. The décor is casual with some movie memorabilia on the walls but the overall theme is a sea shanty. There is also a small gift shop inside that allows one to purchase Bubba Gump or Forrest Gump themed items. I will definitely make a return trip. The place is a touch loud so keep that in mind when planning a meal.

I hope this is the right restaurant as there are two listed for Orlando. We ate at the one near the parking structure, and near the entrance to Universal. We were really surprised at how good the food was, for a chain restaurant. Our waitress was very attentive, and did a trivia quiz, about Bubba Gump movie and actor Tom Hanks. I'm not a trivia buff, but I did quite well. The alcoholic drink I had was over crushed ice and was really refreshing on a hot day. If you show your food receipt at the attached store, they will give you a souvenir glass with their logo on it. Both our meals were excellent, and we will be visiting Bubba Gumps again, wherever we travel.
