I had blackened salmon with spinach and a side of broccoli in place of the jasmine rice. The broccoli had too much butter on it, as it was a healthy replacement to rice. The spinach was way too salty and I told the waiter after...More

We went to the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for dinner tonight. It was mediocre. My fried shrimp was over cooked and didn’t taste really fresh. It was extremely disappointing. My French fries were ok but nothing special. They were seasoned for flavor but not healthy...More

We love people watching so we stopped in and sat outside. The drinks are cold and the food is good. The selection is huge. Our server must have been having a bad day, they usually play Forest Gump Trivia with you but not this time.

Had the shrimp macaroni and cheese. It was delicious. It's on the appetizer menu but plenty of food for a lunch meal. Good service. Loved the Run Forest Run and Stop Forest Stop signs on table for wait staff service.

Food is middle of the road and not something I would go out of my way for. I think when I went it was just getting pummeled by visitors and maybe the server was having an off day. It was my first time going there...More
