We arrived in Gatlinburg tired and hungry- not a good combination with small kids! We saw Bubba Gump's and decided to try it- and loved it!! Forrest Gump memorabilia is everywhere, and there are fun license plates at your table that you use to signal your waiter if you need them. Our waiter was wonderful- he played Forrest Gump trivia with us while we waited for our food which was fun. He went out of his way to get my 4 year old watermelon lemonade in a kids cup since it technically wasn't on the kids menu, which we really appreciated. The only hiccup was when our orders came out- my husbands wasn't correct, but they apologized and his seafood feast came out hot in just a few minutes. The kids got their meals served in boxes made to look like the shrimp boat from the movies, and the food was served on Greenbow Times "newspaper" which was entertaining. Kids meals come with jello, which my kids liked since it was something a little different. All the details were neat to see, and it wasn't just atmosphere- the food was really good! I recommend the coconut shrimp. We would definitely return here again for a fun, family friendly meal!

My husband, myself, our two daughters arrived between lunch and dinner trying to avoid a crowd. We were asked if we wanted balcony seating which seemed like a great idea since it was really nice out the day we were there. No one mentioned to us about the stroller parking so we had to make our way through the resteraunt to the elevators pushing a stroller. We arrived upstairs and went to the balcony, we asked for the table that would have given us the most room, but were directed to a smaller corner table. Not a big issue until another group came in after us with just 4 adults and they were given the larger table. We felt like we were put in the corner. We placed our order and when my husbands plate came out it came out wrong. He mentioned this to the waiter who apparately just took his plate to the back and raked off the stuff he didn't want and brought it back out. He then requested a new sandwich, since you've raked off the dressing while doing what we asked the first time around. They have the run forrest and stop forrest tags for alerting the waitstaff if you need something or to just keep going...guess ours was color blind as he never stopped until we finally waved him down.

Would love to go back...hopefully on a better day!
