The Talapia, shrimp, and service was terrific. For what we got it was priced above most other places though. Although the experience was good, the hosts were totally clueless when we arrived. The first host left without a word leaving the second host not a clue who was waiting to be seated. Some people just wondered in and the host didn't acknowledge them even though they are supposed to be seated. Once past the host fiasco, the service was stellar.

The wine-soured, the seafood was overlooked, rubbery & not seasoned well at all. The iced tea was horribly bitter and the service was the pits! Two plates came out off the kitchen 20 minutes prior to the rest of our party. The sauces for the fried and boiled shrimp were rank and our 12 year old son threw up for hours after we left there.
We ate at the Orlando location at Universal Studios & there is no comparing the two! We won't go back!

This was my first time at Bubba Gump's in Charleston and it was a positive experience for me and my lunch guests. The beer was cold, the service was good, and the food was tasty. My wife and I shared Forrest's Seafood Feast. It was very good, but the serving of cole slaw was quite small. We'll be back when we visit Charleston.

Price/quality for this place is poor.
The food is greasy and the taste nothing to talk about.
Service was impersonal.
A real restaurant for tourists.

Had to try a meal the famous Bubba Gump's with our first visit to historic Charleston,SC. Everything waqs OK but i had honestly expected more The food was average at best and the atmophere was nothing special. Not a bad place to eat but not worth going out of your way.
