Shockingly enough, the food was actually good!
We had the New Orleans shrimp and fried chicken and both were good. No way, right?
Well, they're not perfect. We also had the lava flow and somesort of Southern Comfort blend type drink and both were just expensive and tasted incredibly bad.
Wonderful memories – It's been so long since I've been there, but I'm a huge fan of the Forrest Gump
movie, so I was in 7th heaven! I don't remember what I ate, but we had to wait
very long for our food. I didn't mind, as I was looking at the memorabilia, and
the view was just fantastic! I would go back there again, just for those two
fun place – Being a big fan of Forrest Gump, I just had to come here. Surprisingly enough, I didn't have shrimp. hehe. But I did steal some bites from my party's plates. It tasted pretty good too. I had cajun fried chicken and mashed potatoes, which were great. Our server was very attentive even when the whole place was very crowded. Overall, it was great experience. You guys from the LA area will be happy to know that there is a Bubba Gump's open at the Universal CityWalk. I know I am .
Be prepared to wait! – I only come here on weeknights anymore as the last time we tried coming here on a Saturday night, we were told the wait was almost 3 hours. I'm sorry, but that's insane. When I do eat here, however I like their shrimp dishes. I'd like to come back to try their crab dishes.
Just OK, not fabulous – You'll definitely come here for the movie stuff, not the food. It's only OK, and pretty overpriced, I thought. Our server messed up our order, and the people across from us, and they weren't even that busy. The view is good, though, if you sit near the back. You can see Alcatraz and the ocean and some pelicans and stuff, too.
Go for the experience not the food – Go to Bubba Gump for the experience and with a large group of friends - you'll have fun. The food is like other major chains - it's average and overpriced. It tends to be very busy so expect a long wait. Our server was excellent even though our large group had a bit too much alcohol.
Very good! – I went to the one in San Fran in 1997 and had an item from the childrens menu (since I was 11), although I can't remember exactly what it was - shrimp? haha, but it was very good and my parents enjoyed thier meal as well. Then my mom had her picture taken with the Forest Gump look a-like. Overall it was a great place to eat and the waiter was very nice.
My family and I ate at the bbbba gump resturante in chicago and the food was wonderful, and above all we were greeted with the best service that I have ever had in any resturant. I can say even when we have been too fancy high class dining this still beats them all. The gentleman who serves us was above all very polite and ontop of his job. His name is Charles.

Awesome – I ate there twice and loved it. The food was fabulous and I felt like I got a good sized portion for the price. The view was spectacular and we have a picture of our group that our waitress took for us. The service was great. It was an all around wonderful dining experience.
