Bubba Gumps is entirely inspired by the movie Forrest Gump. It's a fun, themed restaurant to visit with a group of friends and kids will love it.
The food is standard American, seafood fare (but you can score a burger and fries too), with large portions. It's not anything spectacular taste wise (in my opinion, it's hard to mess up friend jumbo shrimp), but it's filling a good.
The entire place is more about the experience: drinks in disco cups with flashing lights in the bottom, the "Run, Forrest, Run" table signs, and the Forrest Gump movie trivia our waiter engaged us in. All of it added to the entertainment value which is what this place is mostly about.
Kids love it for sure!
