Watch your credit card. On 08/09/2013 a tip of 18.00 turn , by a miracle, into over 30.00. This was obviously not a key error. I found out, because I left my card there and called the bank to make sure it was not used improperly. The management while trying to be polite was only making it worse by not simply fixing it. Just kept saying they would . After 10 min of waiting I finally left. I checked with my bank later and my money for the tip and the meal was returned. However, This should not have happened. This was not a simple key error. you cant key 18.00 into over 30.00 by accident. It's unfortunate, but a lot of credit card fraud is by employees at places you use your card. Just sad.
Disappointing – Went for a birthday. Staff interacted with the groups but left the smaller tables orphans. The restaurant is "sign" themed. Smaller tables should have a sign that says, "Cook your own, serve your own". Food was disappointing compared to all the hype. We will never return, nor recommend.
pretty good! – I really like bubba gump! they have nice service, and there food is pretty good, but could be better. I usually order the grilled shrimp and sometimes its a tad overcooked but usually its delicious! improvements could be made, but its pretty good overall!
Great food and service – We visited Denver last week and ate at Bubba Gump's. Not once, but twice!!
Food was great and service was excellent.
Poor Boy shrimp sandwich is awesome.
If you get a chance, try them out! Across from the convention center.
Outstanding choice – Great food and vibe, puts me in a vacation mood upon arrival. A great place to escape and enjoy the "stage".
nothing special – Couple of friends and I went there last night. The place is pretty easy to find, interior decor is really nice. However, the food was ehhh. The cajun seasoning have some weird taste to it, and it was bland. We order a 3/4 lb shrimp, the Garlic butter, is mainly just butter. Over all I had high hope for this place, I thought the food was going to be over the top. But it turns out not so great.
Ok, but not impressive – My wife and I found the place very disappointing. The staff was very nice and greeted us outside and made us very welcome. Our waiter was attentive and talkative, not that smiley though, but it wasn't a problem. The place stunk, almost like a raw or stale shrimp smell, I have been to several seafood restaurants and never smelt anything so bad. My wife ordered fish and chips, it was so greasy, and the mahi mahi was tasteless. I ordered the Shrimp sampler, with a Varity of sauces. The chilled shrimp was tasteless and most had the veins in, the other three types were tasteless had to order the hot Cajun sauce to make them edible. Our bill for two people was high, I don't mind paying high prices for seafood, but I expect high quality, not this junk. If you want good seafood, go to one of Denver's excellent non-franchise seafood restaurants, heck even Chili’s or Applebee’s beats this place hands down.
The place to be for a PARTY!! – We went to the Gumps to celebrate a birthday and it was so much fun. They made my boyfriend stand on a chair and I think everyone in the entire restaurant was singing and clapping. It was amazing!! I recorded it and am going to put it on you tube. It was so much fun. The food was awesome too. I ordered the shrimpers heaven and could not even eat half of eat. I got a second meal with my doggie bag. VALUE!! I read the negative review when logging on to do mine and I am confused by their comments. I think sometimes people with no sense oh humor or personality should not go to fun places. This place rocked and I cannot wait till another friend has a birthday. We are so there. Oh- and they let us play ping pong in there private banquet room. YEA!!
Ok, but not impressive – My friend and I went there for lunch and overall I found the place very disappointing. The staff was very nice and greeted us outside and made us very welcome. Our waiter was attentive and talkative, not that smiley though, but it wasn't a problem. The place stunk, almost like a raw or stale shrimp smell, I have been to several seafood restaurants and never smelt anything so bad. Our garlic bread was crisp and tasty. My fish and chips had nice fries, but the mahi mahi was tasteless. The mudpie dessert had no flavor, except for tons & tons of sugar. Our bill was $44.18 for two people, I don't mind paying high prices for seafood, but I expect high quality, not this junk. If you want good seafood, go to one of Denver's excellent non-franchise seafood restaurants, heck even Chilli's or Applebees beats this place hands down. The only saving grace was the good service (4 stars) the food was awful.
