Great new venue on the water with a lively atmosphere and good food. Much less crowded than Margaritaville and a little different cuisine. One word of advise beware of the top-shelf margaritas. The come with a song and dance and in our case a lap...dance! That wasl great fun for the staff just a little weird getting a lap[ dance in front of your spouse. Lots of food and they do tableside guacamole.More

I love BG restaurants and been visiting them all over USA and in London and the food is always awesome. This Bubba Gump disappointed on the price! Take the pint glass, 5$ in Miami and 14$ here... And you can’t even use your Laundry select...club membership to earn points... Even in London, that are not even LSC, you get points.More

We visited this bubba gump shrimp location for a second time last week. We come to town at least once a year through a royal Caribbean cruise. The very first time we had a waiter by the name of Joel and as that is also...my name naturally I was thrilled. Needless to say it was the best restaurant experience we have had in a while. He was outgoing, energetic, and thorough. He is a one of a kind waiter. He was able to handle every question we threw at him and made sure our short time with him was memorable as delicious. Fast forward to this year. We were set to visit this same port and knew exactly what our first stop would be. With high hopes we walked in and asked if Joel was still a waiter at this specific establishment. Not only was he, but he took on look at us and it was like we never skipped a beat. A year later and he still remembered us. Just like the first time his service was impeccable. Iv never had a waiter show so much enthusiasm as he did. Everything we ordered was delicious and brought out to us in a timely manner. We had another 10/10 experience and will be making plans to stop in there once more if we are given the chance! If you get the chance to visit ask for Joel and tell him Joel from Boston/Cruise sent you! As for cuisine, I couldn’t get enough of it. That being said I hope you enjoy shrimp! I can’t speak on many menu items as Iv only ever binged their shrimp which were heavenly. Hush puppies were lightly fried and served with a delicious sauce. Also I don’t think I could ever go there without getting the coconut shrimp. They are big enough for one so don’t fill up to much prior too! Overall great food and drinks with outdoor availability for seating. Can’t beat the view from this location. prices vary but seems about $16us for most things on menu but overall worth a stop in. I hope everyone can have the experience I had.More

Stopped to rest after a day of shopping. We wanted something lite, before dinner. My mother and I decided to try the shrimp filled hush puppies, this was a grand choice. The pups were light crunchy and every bite had a bit of shrimp so...tasty. Our drinks were refreshing Mango orange lemonade wonderful combination and a good deal to boot. The location was easy to get to and better yet handicap friendly.More

Had a great experience. Great food and accommodating with my shellfish allergy. Loved the picnic table seating near the water. Definitely a great option for a meal and drink if you don’t want the party atmosphere of Senor Frogs or Margaritaville.More

Located in one of the strip malls built into the Cruise ship dock, I found BBS a little out of the way and confusing to get to- but once I figured it out everything was awesome. The beer was cold, the food was REALLY good...by my standards and the view of the ships was nice (I'm a ship guy so I love looking at them.) The service was exceptionally quick and friendly. Getting out again proved to be a little tedious since it's embedded in a pretty hard sell district but this wasn't a huge deal. Well worth the walk.More

We had a really memorable experience at Bubba Gumps while on a recent cruise. It was really fun (and didn't involve the annoying whistling that seems to be so common at some of the other cruise pier restaurants) and became like a "party" with the...waitstaff, who were very happy to engage with us when they saw we wanted to, singing and taking pictures. Everyone was so nice and I feel bad I didn't get more of their names, but two that we did were Atenea and Joran - they were both awesome. We actually recognized Atenea from the year before and showed her a picture, and she was so sweet to us - it was like visiting an old friend. We highly recommend Bubba Gumps and can't wait to go back ourselves!More

As long as you order food/drinks there is no charge to swim. They have a few floats and lifeguard on duty.
