We stopped here to say we ate at Bubba Gumps. The food was good. Nothing fancy, but I liked the Forrest Gump decor theme. Waitress was nice and I liked having to flip the sign when you needed her. Service was pretty fast. Reasonably priced...More

We were there two days after the snow/ice storm that hit Charleston and the East coast. It was cold and icey. The manager did everthing to make us feel welcome. The appetizers were great but the general menu was even better.

Our grand daughter loves Forrest Gump so we went to his place. The food was good, the staff were fun and it was a great fun. The decor delighted our grand daughter. The prices didn't break the bank either.

We saw this restaurant and hesitated because we were concerned it was just another touristy place with a famous name and lots of artifacts and information about the movie. Well, turns out it was all that in addition to serving really good seafood dishes!
