We stopped in since it was close and we were tired. I know this is a chain but its a good! The shrimp and gumbo were excellent. Our waiter was charming and funny. We asked to sit on the balcony and were escorted out immediately though it was almost full. Fast efficient and good food and drinks.

Had to visit here being a forrest gump fan. The staff were friendly and informative, the drink flowed well and the food was good. To add it all the staff do a fun wee quiz that was more entertaining than the continual 'happy borthdays's' you get at other restaurants. Loads of memorabilia on the walls to keep the conversation on... More

We chose to sit on the terrace looking down on the street which was certainly fun. The food for the most part was just okay except for the raspberry and chicken salad which was delicious. We had shrimp (ordered sauteed but it came deep fried) and fish and chips. Our waitress was fun and friendly, did a good job other... More

We went in to Bubba Gumps to just get a drink and look at their gift shop. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The gift shop was small and the restaurant was clean and tidy . We did end up eating something , the seafood was good but just average for me, the waitress was very helpful and super... More

Our tour group had reservations - limited menu which we chose before our dinner - and they put all 73 of us in a private room. We were entertained with trivia re: Forest Gump. Lots of laughs and the food was just ok.....(I do not do fish)....The atmosphere and the decor was worth the visit.

I've eaten at a Bubba Gump's in Las Vegas and Chicago, but, my friends had not, so we decided to give this location a try. We were immediately sat, but, was in the bar area and we were right under a cold air vent. We did ask to be moved, and were promptly taken to the patio in the back.... More

We had no clue this was in the French Quarter & we've never been to any of their other locations. We loved the shrimp mac & cheese appetizer. Our meals were great. The decor was Forrest Gump all the way. Our server played trivia and couldn't stump us even after about 20 questions. The gift shop was reasonably priced. Definitely... More

We had been on the road all day and wanted a place to sit down have some food, drink, and take in New Orleans. We found a street side table where we could people watch and take in the experience. I wouldn't call this fine dining, but fun dining and the food and drinks were good! Wait staff was very... More

We wanted a balcony location so we could watch the Krewe of Boo parade and found Bubba Gump's. It was one of the few balconies on the parade route. Took quite awhile after we put our name in to get called, and when we were, it wasn't for the balcony, so we waited longer. After some extensive discussion with the... More

I was totally disappointed in the mass produced prepared food. The food tasted like it had been freezer burned and they must have been low on cole slaw, because you were only given two tablespoons full. the service was outstanding too bad the food did not match. there are so many other great restaurants in the French Quarters for them...

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.
