The staff was friendly and there were events for the kids. The food was classic seafood, nothing fancy, but good and wholesome. Their alcoholic drinks were very good.

Firstly, they forgot about us when we were waiting for a table, then they spent forever getting food to us. When food arrived it was not hot and bland. The order was also wrong. Ordered a beer outside, which was great- ordered the same beer...More

Jambalaya was good and very spicy. Other dishes I saw looked good as well. Serving size was above average but the one negative was that the food took forever.

We ate at Bubba Gump tonight with our teenage daughter and her friend. It was a great time for us all. My husband doesn’t eat seafood, but the rest of us do. There was plenty to choose from no matter what your dietary needs are....More

Dropped in here for dinner one evening and was taken with the Forrest Gump memorabilia as much as the food - which was very good. Service was speedy, friendly and helpful and the choice of drinks, especially beers, was very good.

My family & I have visited multiple Bubba Gumps. This one in particular was far from what we have had previously. Food was way overpriced. The seafood feast was the size of a kids meal. Fries were soggy. Mahi-mahi was the size of three chicken...More
