“Disappointed!!!!!”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

For an afternoon snack on the patio I tried the small Strawberry Shortcake which consisted of 1 biscuit, 1 scoop of ice cream, & ONE strawberry sliced in 4 with a dollop of cream on top - who ever heard of strawberry shortcake with 1 strawberry. Cost $7.95. In Canada we put strawberries on strawberry shortcake. How cheap can you get. Otherwise it was tasty.

“Delicious food, neat decor and friendly staff!”
Reviewed April 6, 2011

Enjoyed our visit to Charleston, and topped it off with a delicious seafood meal at Bubba Gump's. Despite the waitress being in training, she was knowledgeable and eager to please. The food was hot, fresh and delicious. Nice selection of options in the vent you don't desire seafood. Service was very good. Loved the trivia played with staff, and the movie memorabilia throughout the restaurant. Also liked the option to eatinside or outside where you could enjoy people watching and the downtown scenery.

“Fun evening; fantastic food; friendly servers.”
Reviewed November 20, 2010

Visited Bubba's from an advertisement and were not disappointed. Atmosphere set the tone for a fun evening which we shared with some great friends. We had Kentucky Bourbon Skewers, and our friends had Shrimper’s Heaven; both were wonderful. The she-crab soup was awesome. Servers were friendly, seemed to have fun and acted like they loved their jobs. It was a great experience.

“Fun but expensive and commercial”
Reviewed November 10, 2010

Had a nice dinner here but it is very commercialised and cheesy. Food was good as was the service but the bill was alos huge. Our two small children loved it though and we did have a fun night.

“Great waiter, good food!”
Reviewed November 5, 2010

My husband and I really value good service and we got just that when we went to Bubba Gump's on our first-ever trip to Charleston. Our waiter's name was Greg and he was very knowledgeable about the menu and even suggested things for us to eat. This may be common for the waiters (we don't know as we've never been to a Bubba Gump's before) but while we were waiting for our food, he came up to us and was asking us some trivia questions about the movie Forrest Gump. We had fun with that.

The food was good. Atmosphere was good - typical for a chain restaurant. I guess if you are looking for more of a local restaurant this isn't for you as it does seem commercialized.

All in all though, we would definitely go back as the service was top notch and the food was good!
