The location and sight view was nice, but the parking lot is not good and menu was a little bit salty. If you want order or ask something, you can flip the "STOP" board on the table.

I'm not a seafood lover, but my boyfriend is so he ordered the Shrimper's Heaven and he was in heaven while enjoying his meal! I ordered the steak and while it looked pretty on the plate - it just...

We always love Bubba Gump. Said we wouldn't go to chain restaurants while in Hawaii, but we always make it to Bubba Gump. They are always busy, but service is has always been prompt and the food has always been delicious!

Our server was Letty. She was on top of things. The restaurant was clean. We are out on the terrace. Just beautiful with the view of the ocean and the sounds of the waves. We had shrimp four ways and the shrimp macaroni and cheese. Very good.

They have a great location. They are a chain with a set menu. There are better restaurants within walking distance.

We've been to a couple of Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurants and have always had a positive experience. Good selection on the food and bar menus. The staff was polite, attentive and cheerful. I loved the open air dining on the deck. Good portions for affordable prices. Will visit again on next trip to Hawaii.

We typically try to eat local on vacation but one of the six I was with just had to try it here. Same menu as far as I could see, most everything fried somehow. Also was one of the most expensive meals we had and average quality.

Thank Robin D
