I had Seafood trio and my husband had Seafood feasts (deep-fried seafood with fries), and we loved them so much. The ocean view from our table was beautiful, and the staff there was nice, funny, and friendly. This was our 2nd visit to this location, and we can't wait to go back there again.

Enjoyed a great lunch at Bubba Gumps. Great selection of seafood on the menu. Good selection of cocktails and beer on the menu as well. Fun times.

The first place we ate when arrived in Santa Monica was Bubba Gump's. Although it is typically a "chain" restaurant (ate at one on Time's Square) the food was good and the view of the pier and the beach cannot be beat.

The restaurant was filled with Forrest Gump memorabilia, and was a superfans dream! Real props and photos from the film plus other Gump related objects adorned the walls, and the gift shop was stocked with millions of great gifts. The food was all seafood, with names inspired by the film. Serving sizes are smaller than most American restaurants, but the same as most Australian places. Food is great and I highly recommend the dessert. Cocktail menu was immense and awesome. The waiter had a knowledge of the film that was insanely impressive and none of my trivia could beat him. I was truly impressed and I would call him a god. A bit expensive compared to most casual dining places but well worth it. If you love Forrest Gump, this is the place for you! I'll be coming back soon.

We had the sampler appetizer-highly recommend for a little taste of everything when shared. Coconut shrimp was okay but probably not our favorite. Long wait but funny waiter who was prompt turned it all around!
