We waited a long time here for a table - much longer than we were told the wait would be. The wait was over an hour and there were open tables everywhere. When we asked why the long wait, we were told there was a large group upstairs. It was late and the kids did not want to search for another restaurant wish we would have. The server acted like did not want to be there. The food was not good. It tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen for quite awhile. We are guessing they had made a lot of extra food for the upstairs group and took from that for our food. Our bill was over $100. We would have gotten better food at a fast food restaurant.

The food is just ok. Service was slow and not because they were busy, more because of a disinterested server.

Overpriced seafood over seasoned with paprika which does not give good flavor. Do not recommend the Cajun Net Catch Shrimp - very little shrimp and it's not Cajun seasoning. We also ordered the fish and chips - fish was actually good but the fries were cold and not seasoned which makes the entree pointless.

This is the 3rd Bubba Gump's we have dined at (different states) and probably will be the last because it consistently just has ok but overpriced food.

We got there at about 7pm. We waited a few minutes to be seated, even though they weren’t very busy. After we were seated it took a while for our server to come, even though there were only about 5 other tables in use upstairs. The food was fine once it came out- coconut shrimp, fish & chips and a burger- but it took a while to get it. Just slower that I would expect for a half empty restaurant.
