Fun and yummy! – This is a great place for enjoying the French Quarter, the balcony is great for watching the sights and sounds. My favorite dish is the Mahi Mahi with shrimp and a creamy bourbon sauce, yum! Our server was a kick, she was so funny and really made us feel welcome in New Orleans.
worse food and service – the service was horrible. our waitress took forever for our orders. the appetizers took an hour to come out, and the dinner and hour after that. the restaurant was not busy that day. the food was cold when we got them and overcooked.
rodent ran across floor – A rodent ran across the floor while we were eating...the waitress was nonplussed. What??? At the end of the meal when we were asked about dessert my husband asked if they had chocolate "mouse"...the waitress was speechless ! The couple in the next booth couldn't stop laughing. WWFD
"Life is like eating at Bubba Gumps you never know what is going to run across the floor."
Food not even close to New Orleans quality – The server was nice, the place is neat. The dining experience ends there.
When you are in the French Quarter you have an abundance of very good food around you. The fried shrimp had HEAVY breading and taste like the frozen shrimp you buy in the box, pre breaded....in fact I am convinced. The shrimp and artichoke dip tasted like bad fish, very fishy. Even if there were not in a culinary mecca, they food would still be considered terrible in my book.
Why waste an oppertunity to eat a quality meal on Bubba Gumps prefabbed, frozen food? I cannot think of any.
BEST BREAD PUDDING – This is my sons favorite place to eat.It is a lot of fun.Try the bread pudding if you go.SOOO good.Waiters are fun.The charecters are there .Bubba, Forest, the shrimp
This "Forrest Gump" theme restaurant serves up shrimp and movie memorabilia nationwide. – In Short
With its distressed-wood bar and framed "Gump"-isms, this franchise is teaming with kitschy fun. Chock-full of movie memorabilia, framed still images from the film line the walls while Depression-era props perch on shelves. Expect a piped-in, good-time vibe: Smiling servers quiz diners on movie trivia. Popcorn shrimp, peel-and-eat shrimp, shrimp po' boys--practically every preparation Bubba ever conceived is available in huge portions for not much money.
Great familsy dining!!! – Bubba Gump restuarant in New Orleans is a great family venue with a fun atmosphere. Been here many times and has never been bad. Service is up beat and prompt. Food is high quality and taste. Granted this is New Orleans and its full of great places to eat but for family dining Bubba Gump simply cannot be beat. I mean I would not take my kids to eat at most local places here but we always make a trip to the Gump when in town.
Great customer service and tasty food! Perfect for large groups! – This is one of my favorite restaurants to visit when in New Orleans!! The staff is amazing!! The food is delicious! My personal favorite it the Shrimper's Heaven! And their Hush Pups are to die for!!! Everytime I have visited this restaurant, I have had superb services!! The staff look like they actually love their job! And they do trivia from the movie!! I have brought a large group in as well...PERFECT restaurant for large groups. I was amazed at how speedy the service was for 40ppl!!
Gets business because of the name and location – This is a very touristy place but the food is not great. There is much better seafood surrounding this place in the French Quarter. Mostly about show.
fun place but not necessarily spectacular food – given that my friends had low expectations when we checked out this place, we were pleasantly surprised that the food was okay. i had the heavenly shrimp platter (or something like that) which consisted of the chili shrimp (steamed, i think, and dipped in chili sauce), coconut shrimp (fried), regular fried shrimp and some stuffed shrimp (fried). everything was just ok -- not bad but not great either. a friend had the shrimp etouffe and i think she enjoyed it. another had a past dish with shrimp and that was ok. some friends did not enjoy the hush puppies. we all shared a sampler appetizer (steamed shrimp, artichoke dip,m chicken tenders and some other thing i don't remember) and i though that was just ok... note, that the chicken tenders was not fried but soaked in some kind of barbecue sauce. the service was friendly. the restaurant had the cute forrest gump theme. the servers asked trivia from the movie (did you know that sally field played the mom AND a reporter?). that being said, i will probably not go back.
