I really expected more shrimp choices but Noooo. I ended up having the coconut shrimp and it was sooo greasy and tasteless and way too expensive. I realize it is touritsy but come on. We waited 1.5 hours for a table and then 15 mins for a waitress and then 35 minutes for our food, needless to say, we were... More

This restaurant is on the Kemah Boardwalk with outside and inside accommodations. It was a busy late afternoon Saturday and my Birthday so the $15 Margarita price was okay but wouldn't ordinarily pay that much. I was at an outside bar and the Bartender was friendly after I engaged him in conversation and I enjoyed my less than hour visit... More

I've been to other Bubba Gump Shrimp locations (not in TX). We went bc there were a few in our party that had never been & wanted to try it. In short summary: Service was slow. Food was cold & WAY OVERCOOKED!! It tasted like they cooked it that morning & put in microwave before it came to our table.... More

We have visited numerous bubba gumps, this one is in a good location on kemah broadwalk. staff could have been friendlier, didnt seem interested. not many people in but was maybe out of season. we sat at the bar for happy hour so can recommend that.

Bubba Gump food was just ok. A little pricey and the wait was very long for us, over an hour for a family of 5. It was very crowded being that it was Easter weekend. We had to wait to use the Ladies room, a line outside of door.

5 stars can't happen because of the wait, the birds, the stickiness - but good food. I like the snow crab. I get it every time. I drive to go and eat it. The corn needs some flavor. The rice is great. I would like to have more in my order. Waiters are nice. The kitchen is sloppy and floor... More

I like Bubba Gump a lot. Whenever I have a chance to go, I just do it. If you have never been to one, try to start with the samples (check out the on the menu). They are my favorites.

Good food and variety but a lot on the menu is Fried! Mainly good and fair price... Not Fine Dining.

Always a great time at Bubba Gumps! Even though the Bucket of Boat Trash (crab legs, shrimp, fish and fries) is no longer on the menu they still made it for me upon request. Friendly staff and amazing food. Will be back next time I am in the area!
