We love going to Bubba Gumps. We usually try to eat at one whenever we are in the area. One of my kids loves shrimp and had the 4 shrimp combo plate. Just a fun place to go

Brush up on your Forest Gump trivia because they will quiz you! Staff are fun and food is good, a little overpriced but it is the Forest Gump nostalgia. Definitely worth a visit!

Not the best exeprience. Fish tasted frozen. Pasta wasn't cooked through. Fried appetizers too fried. The waitress was nice though. And well the drinks were good.
