I visit Bubba Gump's every time I visit Charleston. The food is very good, but the service could be improved! The hostess "argued" with me about my reservation (that was made 6 hours earlier). Only when a couple (I was traveling and eating alone) came...More

I‘m starving and have to wait 10 minutes for a beer and 20 min for my food. Both was delicious but waiting so long... Not again, sorry.
