Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Went in a group of 5, the resturant was very busy but we only needed to wait 10 minutes before we were shown to our table. And what a great table with super views of San Francisco Bay. The food, it was of course Shrimp BUT some of the best Shrimp I have had. In particular the coconut Shrimp which was EXCELLENT.
The service was friendly and attentive, the drinks were fun and the Tennesse Iced Tea though a little weak in the Bourbon side was very tasty yummmmmmm.

So resturants maybe like a box of chocolates you, never know what you're gonna get. But I now do know what I will get at Bubba Gump ....fun resturant, good food, great service and the at Pier 39 super views.

“Better than I expected - food and view were great!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We wandered back after our tour and decided "why not" - we'll try Bubba Gumps. I was expecting a touristy, so-so food place with a great view. To my surprise, the fried shrimp were some of the best I have ever had! The waitress was fun and friendly and gave good advice on the portions and what to order. My daughter doesn't like seafood (go figure!) and had a tasty chicken dish. We were on the 2nd row from the windows but still had a great view of the passing sailboats. We got to see the America's Cup sailboat pass by several times. We were able to linger for a bit to enjoy the view and take in the ambience. We had a dessert sampler that was amazing (but we couldn't finish.) I guess we were lucky since we only waited about 10 minutes (around 1:30) so I have no complaints. It was a fun, enjoyable place - worth trying - don't be scared off by other reviews.
