Had a nearly one hour wait for a table. Though their upstairs was empty. When we finally got our seat an hour later, they started seating them upstairs. Why make us wait? Food was good, but not plenty. $15 sampler appetizer consisted of 6 shrimp,...More

We decided to eat at Bubba Gumps for this visit to New Orleans. The food was good. I ate the Mahi-mahi shrimp meal and loved it. My family tried the shrimp and grits, shrimp scampi and a different fish plate and were satisfied with their...More

We went here for dinner and was quite excited that we had found it, not realising there was one in New Orleans. We both love Forest Gump and so our expectations were high. Unfortunately this place just doesn't hit the mark. The downstairs had a...More

If you've been to one Bubba Gump, you've been to them all. Traditional tourist oriented seafood menu delivered relatively quickly to facilitate quick table turnover. I did enjoy the Forrest Gump Film trivia question event led by the server. I was very impressed by his...More

WOW..the coconut shrimp served in a "cast iron" skillet was DELICIOUS! Love the "Run Forest Run" or "Stop Forest Stop" signs on the tables. Very nice staff, quick service, clean, clean restaurant with a lot of atmosphere!

A 'must visit' place when in the French Quarter. The food was great and reasonably priced and the bar staff each time we visited made eating here an absolute pleasure!!

Went for lunch & no crowd at all, in fact we are the only one dine there. Jambalaya is flavorful as well as trio grill dish. You can always expect the same standard of BUBBA GUMP where ever you go. Our server was friendly. We...More

If you’re feeling movie nostalgic, this restaurant is the place for you. After about a 30 minute wait, we were seated. The wait staff was extremely friendly. The gumbo was very good. The fried seafood platter was decent, not great. Tons of Forrest Gump movie...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
