We started with high expectations and ordered a bucket of the shrimp as an appetizer. The Shrimp into the bucket the soup and salad showed up, literally within two minutes of getting the Shrimp. I asked the waitress to please not bring our main course until we finished soup and salad. Two shrimp later the main course shows up with a different waitress! We didn't want to let the fish get cold so ate the shrimp as fast as we could, them ate the main course skipping the soup and salad.

Main reason for 4 stars instead of 3 is our waitress removed the charge for soup and salad and the food was oh so good. My guess is there was someone new controlling the kitchen and in the spirit of good service maybe was a little aggressive.

I would go back again.

This restaurant is a required stop for any visit to Oahu, and the food and service are always outstanding. I recommend the crab-stuffed shrimp or the 'Pear & Berry salad' - excellent!! The bar offerings are extensive and much better and more reasonably priced than those offered in Waikiki.
The restaurant is located on the top level of the Ala Moana Center mall at the end closest to Macy's. The Mai-tai bar next door gets packed with partiers by 9 PM and always has live music, so arrive early if that's not your thing, or if it is, stop by after dinner at Bubba's.
Arrive at Bubba Gump early or expect to wait, even though it is worth it.
I have also visited Bubba in Monterey CA, and recommend them there too!

Bubba Gump shrimp co. is a fabulous restaurant that plays homage to the film Forrest Gump that serves amazing food. The theme of the film is all around the restaurant from the way you get your server to come to the table you have a sign that says run Forrest on one side and stop on the other to the name of the food. The size of the meals can be very big so would recommend going on an empty stomach. One more thing they sometimes come around and ask you a few questions on the film. Absolutely brilliant
