Was so bad it was comical. Understaffed and no coordination between workers - bartender was cleaning tables and serving food. Took 40 minutes to get a drink and about 45 for drinks. Staff was very friendly though. Overpriced. Wouldn't go back.

Love the atmosphere and the food! Your choice of indoor or outdoor dining. My friend had the shrimp scampi and I had seafood jambalaya - both were large potions and very tasty! Our waiter was a very pleasant young man with a friendly disposition which added to the overall enjoyable experience. And the restaurant is located in the heart of... More

We came here for dinner because we thought the kids' menu would appeal to our daughter. While the menu is definitely kid-friendly, the options for adults are mainly limited to seafood items that were mediocre at best. Server was nice, but service was a bit slow, considering that it was a weekday and not all tables were filled. Good menu... More

The food and service is worth waiting in line for. The staff is very proud and caring about the service they provide. There are signs that says "Run Forest Run" and when you flip the sign to "Stop Forest Stop" a staff member is there in a matter of seconds. Even though you may have a dedicated server, everyone will... More

Really enjoyed the great food and atmosphere at Bubba Gump's. Had a delicious shrimp boil with sausage, corn on the cob, and red skinned potatoes. The bread pudding for dessert was out if this world!

Mixed feelings on our experience. Food was fantastic. service was slow. The big issue I saw was the hostess telling potential customers there would be a 45 minute waiting time and the 4 tables next to,us were empty for 20 minutes. Lost numerous customers

We made a reservation for 14 and we absolutely enjoyed our food, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our server Kyle was great along with the other's that... More
