Whenever we visit NYC we always have lunch at Bubba Gump's. The seafood is excellent with a great variety of items offered on their menu. We love the fish and chips, the mahi mahi fish and the coconut fried shrimp. Service is always fantastic as well. Most fun part---your server will question you about details from the movie "Forrest Gump" and you can question them as well!!!!! Always try to see the movie again before you go so you can remember all of the details. Also we love the fact that there is a sign on each table that says "Run Forrest Run" or "Stop Forrest Stop" that you can flip over to read whatever you need your server to do for you. If you love this movie ---you must go to "Bubba Gump's" and if you love seafood you will have a wonderful time!!! Get a window seat overlooking Times Square!!!

Meh. It was ok. We ate there out of convenience and because we had someone with a birthday in our group who wanted fish. It's a good place for kids, service was adequate.

Located right in Times Square this restaurant does not disappoint! Food was great, service was quick and attentive, food was well priced, and they have a great kids menu. I got the scampi which was perfect! Boys got chicken fingers and mini corn dogs. Tasted the chicken fingers and they were flavorful (not spicy). Atmosphere is fun and all Forrest Gump themed. Will definitely return on our next visit!
