“Interesting Lunch”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Needed somewhere for lunch, and this was where we were.
An interesting - and for us - novel meal, with only a 5 minute wait outside to get seated.
A usual tourist trap - but we had a fun time with the novelty of it- and provided you like deep fried seafood, nice food, though a bit pricey. Good service and an interesting venue.

“Be sure to stop here”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co is a place worth visiting. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. If you like the Forest Gump movie, then you'll really enjoy all the memorabilia located throughout the restaurant. Our waitress made the dining experience even more fun by quizzing us on trivia about the movie.

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

I cannot RAVE about the service enough. It was fantastic. Our main waitress was fun and engaging and so sweet. The food was great. Not 5 star but 3...and a half. The portion sizes were not proportional to their prices. I would expect more. But it was good and the service was amazing.

“$$$$ and poor service!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

To start the server was from Europe and did not do well with the English language, she also did not know the menu very well. The drinks were very expensive and we noticed that the alcohol content was very lacking. The food was good but not great and for the four of us with two drinks each and tip the bill was $175. Definitely not worth the price, we will not be returning.
