Bubba Gump has one thing going for it and that's location. Right smack on Decatur street where people watching is a sport. As far as the food it's not bad but it's definitely not worth the money you pay for it. I had the Calamari and Bourbon Mahi. The Calamari came in an unusual cone shaped bowl with the sauce placed oddly under the cone which made it hard to dip the fish in. The cone shaped bowl made it look like there was a lot of calamari but there wasn't. The very high priced Bourbon Mahi was OK too but not worth the price. Overall the food was decent but overpriced for what you get. This place makes it's living off of tourists looking to pay less for seafood when in actually you can get a better meal at nearly any French Quarter restaurant for the same price you pay at Bubba Gump.

Friends of ours recommended Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, but since it was a chain, we never visited in past trips to the French Quarter. We were so glad we gave them a chance for lunch. We started with the Popcorn Shrimp, which was awesome. Lightly battered and included some battered peppers which were delicious. The chicken sandwich with bacon and guacamole was equally impressive. The service was great and the prices were very reasonable. My only regret was that we didn't request to sit outside on the balcony, since it was such a beautiful October afternoon. Life is like a box of chocolates and this pick for lunch was a keeper!

Usually would look for something that wasn't a chain, but really glad we stopped here for dinner. The waitresses did Forrest Gump trivia and the food was great.

Great food! We had such a great time. Server was wonderful. He provided a very fun environment. Every dish brought to the table was visually appealing and delicious. The restaurant itself is a fun place. Prices are reasonable and nice portion sizes. Group friendly restaurant!
