The atmosphere was awesome, sitting on the boardwalk over the ocean. However, the food was pretty ordinary. The shrimp didn't taste fresh and the seasoning was fairly plain. As we looked out the window to look out at the ocean, a wharf rat ran by on the boardwalk--that pretty well ruined my appetite!

Had my hopes up high only to be disappointed. Bubba's was not crowded but could not get food out of kitchen. Appetizers arrived 40 minutes after our order was placed. Main dish arrived 30 minutes after that only to have it wrong. Food was average at best. As a Landry's Select Member, I know you are better that's this.

Food was good, but my etouffee wasn't enough to even be consider an appetizer. It had good flavor but just no substance. Didn't even come with bread or a salad. I had to order a hamburger afterwards. Plus both orders took forever and they wasn't even all that busy. Staff was good and checked on us frequently, but I think... More

Exactly what I was expecting. Being a fan of the movie and having never been there, we decided to give it a try. It wasnt bad, it wasnt great. Food and service average.

Always a pleasure to lunch at BG's from San Diego to Miami. Seso wine was a surprise treat. Keep up the good food, good service, and fun atmosphere. We'll be back.

The Bubba Gumps are always fun and my kids love it. We are fans of the movie and enjoy the trivia and the decorations. The food is decent for the price. The price is about what you expect to pay in a place of the kind. Over all, a 4 out of 5.

This is the fourth Bubba Gump Shrimp Co restaurant we've visited and hands down the absolute best! The view overlooking the sea was exceptional, the server was attentive and engaging, and the food was great. We enjoyed the shrimp, crab, salad and a burger and every meal was very good. The fruity drinks were also to die-for in the hot... More

Food wasn't really hot and fries were kinda old. Service was very average, loud and rushed us out at 9 p.m. Should rather sell t-shirts than shrimps.

My fiancé and I went on a date to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co for the first time on Thursday. The service was quite good and the food was decent, but everything was very overpriced. I had one beer and we had one appetizer and two mains and it cost us nearly $100
