Downhill – This place has really gone downhill. The food is all pre-packaged and fermented with exotic polymers. Our party had three different entrees and each tasted similar. Unfortunately this chain has gone the way of other nation chains by charging high prices for packaged food. A real shame, b/c it's the first restaurant outside the Convention Center and gives a poor representation to visitors of some really good restaurants on 16th St. Needed, better floor management and wait staff, broader menu selection, real chefs preparing fresh meals.
Hummmmmm – The decor is awesome, even though they should only play the Forrest Gump soundtrack (okay, I know it would drive the wait staff crazy) but other than that, it's overpriced and has little selection.
What a fun place! – Our family loves Bubba Gumps! The food is always consistent, and delicious - though not real healthy. The atmosphere is fun and different. Everyone we take here loves it as well - it is a great place to take out of town guests.
Overpriced (unless you are paying per-diem) – This place is overpriced for people working downtown who are just looking to get something to eat in a group ($20-$25) each. This would be ok if you are catching a play or a balet nearby, but not as a lunch stop. The food is decent but you are basically paying for the theme (Forest Gump Movie in case for some reason you were not aware). My advice would be to go elsewhere to lunch or even to dinner for the money.
Boring and what do we need another second rate chain restaurant for anyway. – It's a step above Red Lobster. Save yourself the agony of a very common chain and go to Gumbos on the 16th street mall. Gumbos has great ambiance, super food and what a fun location. Probably a chain too, but at least you will bet your money's worth.
Bubba Gump is an embarassment to this town! I predict they will fold in two years or less.
I don't get it. Did they just think being near the convention center meant no one cared about the food?
If I go on, I'm afraid no one will take it serious, but please at least consider going to another restaurant.
Editorial Review – "Forrest Gump" theme restaurant serves up shrimp and movie memorabilia to families in Denver.
Very convenient location - great drinks – Had drinks and dinner after a function at the conventions center with some business colleagues. We had a huge meal and a ton of really good drinks. Highly recommended.
