I have three things to say about this restaurant lazy, expensive, and horrible food. We walked in and waited for 5 minutes before somebody could sit us. She say us at a table and took off. Ten waiters were sat at a table laughing and talking not doing any work. Ten minutes later our waiter comes back and takes our... More

Food was just OK. Sat on the patio and had an attentive server. Many of staff, however, seemed to be trainees. Pleasant atmosphere for people watching on market street.

This is our first trip to Charleston, and my boyfriend and I were so excited to see a Bubba Gump Shrimp Company! (Mostly because we're huge "Forrest Gump" fans.) I'm not sure if this is a chain or just one local place, but either way, whoever designed the restaurant got the details down to a t! Drink menus are displayed... More

Having seen many adverts for Bubba Gump, we decided to give this one a go. We were not disappointed, the service was fast and efficient, using a system of rotating a sign stating we were ready and the waiter was there instantly. We were really spoilt for choice but tried two varieties of shrimp and they were excellent, taken with... More

Family of 5 popped into this location for lunch. Food was good and well presented. Service was good. Pricing is also reasonable.

This was a really fun place to eat. The only complaint I had was that the gift shop didn't sell the awesome shirt our waitress had on that said "Captain Dan"! The service and food were excellent. It's quick and fresh but it comes at a cost, so save your dough for a fun meal here. You're going to want... More

We arrived late in Charleston and did not have time to look into restaurants. We saw a chain restaurant and went for it. The service was slow and simply just average. The food was ok, nothing exciting or great. I would return if invited by friends, however it would never be my choice of a place to go.

Place to visit if you are in Charleston and hungry. Restaurant interior is amazing, based on Forrest Gump movie in every detail. We ate shrimps, shrimp soup, jambalaya and some kind of lemon cake. Restroom is clean and service nice, pleasant with the will to explain the whole story about restaurant.. You have also souvenir shop.

We went there for lunch. Although lot of space was available, however attendant made us wait for 15 mins. We had seafood hush pups which were nice and for main course we ordered accidental fish and fishwich. Taste was ok, however they took like 15-20 mins between appetizer and main course.

Thank ajsarin
