OK so we knew it was a tourist chain but had to visit Bubba's! There was a Red Lobster across from my hotel that would have cost less and been much better. They have way to many employees, all walking around looking like they're lost. Waiter didn't know the name of my drink. Dinner came within a minute of our... More

The food was ok, the margarita was good and the atmosphere was the best thing about the place. What spoilt it was the bill. We had many meals over our holiday and this was the most expensive and no where near the best. Not value for money at all.

We normally like Bubba Gump but this one was cold and service was slow. The food seemed extra salty, and we have cut back on cooking with salt, so it could be just our preferences have changed. The cold was a surprise. It was windy and morning temps were in the 50's. They left the doors open, as they were... More

A group of us stopped at Navy Pier for dinner on way to Belmont Harbor for a sailing charter. This place has convenient location and there was no wait to sit outside. I got the shrimp heaven entrée which was combination of coconut shrimp, peel and eat, and tempura. It was good but nothing to really write home about. The... More

Food was good but seemed to be more expensive than other Gumps where we have eaten. Service was fair. Our waiter was more interested in his friend who was at the next table and the three girls that were sitting in the table near us. Food is like any other chain restaurant. If you have never been, go for the... More

Didn't care for the fish and chips, it was some kind of flavorless watery white fish I'd never heard of. It was replaced with something else that was good but way overpriced for a pasta dish with a few shrimp in it. Calamari was a bit tough....I've eaten here before and had better food, just wouldn't pick those items again.... More

Stopped into Bubba gumps to cool off and have a drink while exploring the navy pier, What a mistake $100 later we walked out feeling refreshed but broke! The only bright side was our waiter was friendly and helpful.

We lunched here one afternoon after our riverboat tour. Our server was fantastic and everyone was very nice. The food was fresh and delicious, and we would recommend this to anyone visiting the navy pier. it was a beautiful sunny day and we sat outside under the umbrellas which made the experience THAT much better!!!!

I always try to stop at Bubba Gump's at The Navy Pier when I am in Chicago....I love the shrimp, the staff and the area. The food is always good and the staff is fantastic. It was a little too windy for the patio to be open which was ashame.

Thank vanchu

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
