We went twice it was so good. The ambiance is a little too "Gumpy", not a fan of the film but this place should not be judged on that. Portions are hearty, price is reasonable and the food is too tasty for words. Had the...More

We love people watching so we stopped in and sat outside. The drinks are cold and the food is good. The selection is huge. Our server must have been having a bad day, they usually play Forest Gump Trivia with you but not this time.

Had the shrimp macaroni and cheese. It was delicious. It's on the appetizer menu but plenty of food for a lunch meal. Good service. Loved the Run Forest Run and Stop Forest Stop signs on table for wait staff service.

Had to stop. Been there before, but wanted to relive the moment as we love the Forrest Gump movie. Visited Buford, SC where Forrest ran across the bridge and we watched the eclipse from there, also the area where Forrest bought the shrimp boat.

Food was great! Service was good. When you needed the server you turned your sign to Stop Forest Stop, that way they knew you needed something. Kids food came in little fishing boats (The Jenny).

I have actually eaten at about a half dozen Bubba Gump's over the last several years. Some before my celiacs diagnosis and some after. So I was excited when my niece wanted to eat at the one in Charleston. We made reservations for an about...More

The children loved this place. I was quite happy with my food. My husband was unimpressed. The atmosphere was fun. The decor was interesting. Service was pretty good. Took awhile to get our orders, but there were nine of us. Overall, interesting place with acceptable...More
