This was my 6th visit to Bubba Gump in as many cities - the service was great, I felt the portions provided was much more compared to other chains(Chicago, NY, etc). Shrimp scampi was very well cooked and the platter was excellent as usual

Not great. Food was good but service was slow. Beer grossly overpriced with gimmick of giving you a 25 cent beer glass when you buy a 10 dollar beer. Go elsewhere for better food at a cheaper price and better atmosphere. Not recommended.

We stopped here for lunch. It was good: not outstanding, pricey like everywhere seems to be downtown, but good.
