“Good food.. overpriced”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Been to a few of these and this one was average to maybe a little above... Food was good but not "wow". Prices were above average. Service was great.

“Good food, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Our group of 8 had a very little wait even though it was super crowded. The restaurant has an awesome Forest Gump theme that’s carried throughout. Some servers play Forest Gump trivia with customers and really seemed to enjoy their job. Sadly our server did not. One of the managers mostly waited on us even though we had that nice group gratuity tacked onto our bill for the server. I wish that we could have had that fun experience like some of the other guests. The food was good but not amazing. You do pay extra for the atmosphere.

“Fave place to eat”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

I love Bubba Gumps. Their hush puppy appetizers are the best ever! And, even though basically a seafood place, they have the best fried chicken with mashed potatoes & gravy. Can't order anything else! Neat atmosphere too, if you are a fan of the movie Forrest Gump. Highly recommend eating here!

“What a great place.”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

This place is a blast. I was traveling alone and was a little apprehensive about dining alone. But they made me so welcome. The staff was great, they were asking questions about the movie and it was just great to sit back and watch. The food was awesome. I had the fish and shrimp and it was some of the best shrimp I have ever had. I would love to come back with friends and family and enjoy another great night.
