So when you visit the States, especially the South, you expect to find the wonderful hospitality that everyone raves about, and for the most part, you do. However, after a long day of driving I got to Beautiful Charleston later than expected so quickly did some walking round some of the town to get some photos of this beautiful city... More

We enjoyed dining at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. mainly because of its association with the movie, Forrest Gump. The coconut shrimp was really good, and the atmosphere very cool.

The food is good and reasonably priced for the city. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired, but you get what you pay for.

After a long day touring the area and the market, this was a super convenient stop for a great margarita and tasty shrimp dinner. Service was friendly and helpful in answering some questions we had about store locations. My wife enjoyed her scampi and I the combination of three differently prepared shrimp. Overall just a fun atmosphere.

Ten waiters were sat at a table laughing and talking not doing any work. Ten minutes later our waiter comes back and takes our... More

Food was just OK. Sat on the patio and had an attentive server. Many of staff, however, seemed to be trainees. Pleasant atmosphere for people watching on market street.

This is our first trip to Charleston, and my boyfriend and I were so excited to see a Bubba Gump Shrimp Company! (Mostly because we're huge "Forrest Gump" fans.) I'm not sure if this is a chain or just one local place, but either way, whoever designed the restaurant got the details down to a t! Drink menus are displayed... More
