I have eaten at other restaurants in this chain, but they weren't as good as this one. It took us a while to get a server, but he was very good. Got lots of types of shrimp; the grilled shrimp and the tempura were best.. the coconut shrimp, not so much. The drinks are overpriced, go further down the street... More

Typical chain food. Kind of fun with a variety on the menu. Novelty drink are expensive but good. Not what I would consider authentic Cajun food.

Fun place with the best crab legs I've ever had! We sat in the outdoor veranda and enjoyed the atmosphere of the old building. We had a fairly long wait time, but there's tons of memorabilia to look at while waiting.

We had supper at this Bubba Gump. Our server was very attentive, he brought our drinks in a timely manner as well as our meal. The meal was delicious - we were not rushed. We relaxed and enjoyed people watching on the upper balcony. For their 25th anniversary - we were given complimentary cocktail glasses to take home. A nice... More

Having the opportunity to stop a while a the bar of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co was to much to walk past ...... so we didn't. We enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and enjoyed the Cajun shrimp whilst consuming a couple of cold beverages. Don't forget to have your photo taken on the park bench.

The service here was very good and friendly. The food however was mediocre. I chalk this up to it being a chain though. Only go if you really have to. Lots of other places to eat in NOLA. Giving a three because of the staff being as friendly as they. The food dragged the score down.

Fun place to visit, great service. Everyone friendly and quick to meet your needs. Expect to be hit in the wallet pretty good, pricey for what you get. Meal, 1 drink, & tip was $52. Souvenirs are marked up as well.

The restaurant was only half filled, yet the kitchen was 20-30 minutes behind. We were seated upstairs which meant it took almost 20 minutes to get my son's chocolate milk since he had to go downstairs to get it. The food was ok, but very small portions on the kids meals. We had to share our food with them. The... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
