“Fun, casual meal with lovely friendly staff !”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Such a wonderful setting, along the waterfront in beautiful Lahaina, Maui...in Hawaii.

I ate here a few times during my time in Lahaina.
Excellent friendly service, in the "Bubba Gump" format which is fun...and also casual.

Youthful and enthusiastic staff make this an "experience" restaurant with mini performances happening, from time to time. Children ...and big children love it!

The food is not "top drawer" but is fine, fresh and usually tasty ( though garlic bread, has very little garlic whatsoever; so it is very disappointing)

Ambience, and always excellent service, make the restaurant/cafe a place I return to...despite not outstanding food. (The shrimp/prawns are usually good!)

“Great Food and Fun!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We went to Bubba Gump's for my birthday, the food was excellent!
Both my friend and I had shrimp dishes, that were wonderful. They gave us a great table right by the water:-)
The servers were fun and enthusiastic! They sang a sweet and different B'day song and made my birthday meal very special!

“Bubba's Place”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

An interesting place...built out over the ocean. Enjoyed the atmosphere, the view out over the ocean at night and the lights of the town flickering in the water. Food was great, service was good.

“Great Staff...Average food”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

The staff was great. The food was average at best (not bad... but not great). What I order didn't look at all like the picture on the menu. The shrimp were tiny and extremely spicy. We did have a nice table on the water with great views of Lanai. We will find a better place in the future.

“Good service, only ok food”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

The staff started with a very friendly and entertaining attitude for those waiting in line on the sidewalk in front of the restuarant. The wait was minimal and once we got inside we were waited on immediately and enjoyed great service from our server for the remainder of the evening. The food on the other hand was unremarkable. Wife had fish tacos. The fish was dry and the tortillas were worse...something akin to thin cardboard. Granddaughter had a chicken sandwich which she said was very good. I had the jambalaya which was advertised as spicy and lived up to its billing. The flavor was great, the portion size was only okay but for almost 18 dollars one might expect more than just a smallish bowl with the entree with no salad, cole slaw, garlic bread, or any other go-withs. In fact I asked about garlic bread and they advised me that it was two pieces for $5 ouch! We left with mixed feelings about the experience would not recommend it to others.
