We had lunch and all enjoyed a different meal. My shrimp was excellent (I went all the way and got the specialty), and filling. 4 different cooked styles, all good. Service was timely, dogs allowed (the waiter brought the dog ice water in a doggie bowl).

I love the movie Forrest Gump, so I had to try! Fast sitting, large dinning indoor and out. Shrimp lovers heaven! Loved the run Forrest/stop Forrest for the waiter/waitress! Very neat idea!

Good food, group of 3 all enjoyed varios dishes, service was great, and the wait short. The diners were all casual, some had dogs all of whom were very well behaved and friendly.

I can’t help it I loved the film Forrest Gump and have been dying to go in one of the Bubba Gump Restaurants ever since they started. I loved it, I loved the atmosphere and the props and quotes from the film. I had Gumbo (again) the best Creole food I have had in the South and obviously I had... More

They seemed more concerned about a large birthday party than our family. We asked to be moved twice from the door seat and were ignored. The food was poor compared to the other buba gump's we have gone to. Charleston was great, this eatery was not!

All we had this time in Charleston, Bubba's was the she crab soup. That's what we went for. If we had been really starved, we would have had more. Good service. Enjoyed chatting to the other customers at the bar & the bar tender/server. A nice experience interacting with new people. Maybe we are not authorities, but we think this... More

Food was very good. Service was very good. Very decorative inside. Just had to buy a T-shirt for a friend of mine that says "Stupid is as stupid does".

After an evening carriage ride, we managed to make the last few minutes of happy hour at Bubba Gump's on Market Street. The wonderfully helpful bartender put our whole order in to take advantage of the great appetizer and drinks deals (really, a great value!!) We had never been to a Bubba Gump's Shrimp & found it a really fun... More
