We saw a lovely sunset while celebrating my parent's anniversary. We were on the hunt for lobster and although we didn't get it here the shrimp and fish was fantastic. The spices were great and I would definitely come again. I did note that they sold some of their dressings and spices and it was tempting to bring some of... More

While visiting Hawaii, we went to Bubba Gumps twice and it was great. The first time it was with my wife and daughter and the next time we had a party of eleven. They were friendly, accommodating and the food was great. They even split our bill four ways. We would definitely go back.

Yes, it's open air, it's next to the ocean, the server was polite. Food was mediocre at best and not very cheap. Just watch out the low flying birds don't crap on your plate.

I've been to Bubba Gump before and always enjoyed it. Good selection of food and drinks and this location has a nice patio where you can get a view of sunset.

Once again, we visited Bubba Gumps while on vacation because this restaurant holds special memories for us and our family from a decade ago when we discovered them. They were so good and so fun back then, however now, from the host outside to the server at our table, this is a VERY average restaurant. There is no enthusiasm and... More

We had the sampler plate for lunch and split it between the two of us because the food was too expensive. We did have the key lime pie and it was very good but I could've bought a whole pie at the grocery store for the same price.
