This is nothing more than a high priced McDonald's for shrimp. The food was bland, rubbery and overpriced. When I expressed my displeasure about the entree I was invited to speak with the manager...not sure what that would have done, as I had already advised the waiter what the concern was...no offer to bring me anything else...just speak to the...

We try to go to Bubba Gump's wherever we are, if there is one in that area. The coconut shrimp is amazing and we have yet to find any place that has that wonderful dipping sauce. We have never been disappointed at any of the locations. We still have a few more to visit.

Average cocktails and food, good service and views, only went as the behest of the kids and I regret it, 3 appetisers, 4 mains and a round of drinks cost over 150.00 U.S., give me 808 grindz any day over this tourist trap, all the worst of American food.

We ate at Bubba Gump's last time we were in Kailua-Kona. Seafood was pretty good and the views were outstanding since this is right on the water.

For a chain restaurant it offered a good view, excellent food and it felt like an experience. The waitress was fun and made our largish group feel like we were important to her. Our food came quickly, accurately and all of us are at the same time.

Have been to the one in Lahaina, Maui. Family walking and shopping. Decided to stop in for a Mai tai. They make some of the best around, as well as a number of other specialty drinks. Lots of variety for meals, if you like shrimp especially. Prices are reasonable and service is usually good. A lot of memoribilia from the... More

Two fun dinners at Bubba Gump's. Servers always friendly and fast with service. All dishes were great (ask server for recommendations or customer favorites if menu overwhelms you). Outdoor seating gives fantastic views of beautiful sunsets, palm trees, waves and variety of boat traffic. Fun Kona dinner! Call about a week or less ahead to make a table reservation.
