Having the opportunity to stop a while a the bar of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co was to much to walk past ...... so we didn't. We enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and enjoyed the Cajun shrimp whilst consuming a couple of cold beverages. Don't forget to have your photo taken on the park bench.

The service here was very good and friendly. The food however was mediocre. I chalk this up to it being a chain though. Only go if you really have to. Lots of other places to eat in NOLA. Giving a three because of the staff being as friendly as they. The food dragged the score down.

Fun place to visit, great service. Everyone friendly and quick to meet your needs. Expect to be hit in the wallet pretty good, pricey for what you get. Meal, 1 drink, & tip was $52. Souvenirs are marked up as well.

The restaurant was only half filled, yet the kitchen was 20-30 minutes behind. We were seated upstairs which meant it took almost 20 minutes to get my son's chocolate milk since he had to go downstairs to get it. The food was ok, but very small portions on the kids meals. We had to share our food with them. The... More

We went to Bubba Gump's for a birthday celebration. The food and the drinks were outstanding. The service appeared to be very good and attentive. However, when the check came the server had added upsizing, souvenir glasses and other items to the bill making it a ridiculous amount. We spent a silly amount of time getting the bill straightened out.

I probably sure have known better but at the insisstance of my wife (she is a big Forrest Gump fan), we went it. It wasn't terrible by any means but if I had my choice, there are many other restaurants I would have wanted to sample first.

Food was OK, but nothing special at all. Mushroom/veggie burger was big, but after a couple of bites it was very same and lacked flavour/seasoning. My wife had coconut shrimps, and said they weren't nearly as good as other places she's had them. Service was very friendly, atmosphere was fine - but definitely think the quality doesn't match the prices... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
