Food was cold. Service was slow to non-existent. Took forever before someone came, in fact we had to stop someone to get ine ti stop. Was not a good evening. Vet dissatisfied.

We really enjoyed the food and drinks here! So much we went twice. The service was fun and friendly. Manager took time to check in on our meal. The drinks were very tasty. Great variety on the menu.

Waited the time by visiting the Straw Market across the street which was far better than the wait for our table. We were a party of three and were treaty as a nonentity when there were so many empty tables. Food was barely ok, I've eaten better (even here guess it was a really off day)..

We have been in Charleston for 3 days. Bubba Gump has been the worst restaurant that we ate at . Our waitress tried to remember our order and forgot a lot of it and got some of it wrong . What an attitude she had . The boiled shrimp was not good at all.

With only four days of eating experience we hesitated to chose a chain restaurant for one of our meals. We were at the market and it was raining a little and Bubba's was close so we said yes. Surprise! After all of our eating experiences in Charleston we rate this as one of the best.

The food was basically good but nothing special. The shrimp cocktail was overcooked. The po-boy was very good. The price was a bit high. The server made the visit special. He was so friendly and helpful. Really enjoyed talking to the young man and he made the overall experience good.

We have ate here a few times but this time was disappointing. We sat outside by choice. Most tables empty yet they sat us in the back by the beverage station. Why not near street for view?The waiter was a little rude and not very attentive. The drink only came with souvenir glass which I didn't need and cost too... More

Took a while to get our food, but overall the food was pretty good. As far as the service went, Buddy was on the spot for whatever we needed before we had to turn the "stop" sign.
