Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant is a chain and they have a few places in Southern California, On Oahu, Northern California and other places. I had been here before but the kids havent. I was telling them about this restaurant and how they test you on the movie Forrest Gump and they got excited and wanted to come.
Their specialty is shrimp but I am not a seafood person so I didnt have any of this. It isnt bad, the food is ok but its pricey for what you get. Overpriced burgers and that sort of thing.
The place is decorated with memorabilia from the Forrest Gump movie and I think thats what the kids liked about coming here.
Restaurant chain from the movie Bubba Gump. Great atmosphere and location! Is right on the shore! Windows are open and the evening breeze blows right through the restaurant! The staff are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much the first night, we went back the next night!
Favorite Dish: Bucket of Boat Trash!! Included various fried seafood (shrimp, fish, etc.) with fries in a galvanized bucket! Also have great drinks and desserts.
Well, I've got 4 and 3 of them are tourist traps, but hey, that's what you're here for. Besides, the food was great! You've got to 'do' Bubba Gump's, Cheese Burger in Paradise and Hard Rock Cafe. For fine dining, Ruth's Chris can't be beat!
Bubba Gump's, Cheese Burger in Paradise and Hard Rock are all Hawaiian laid back casual. Serving sizes are great and prices are reasonable. Ruth's Chris is upscale, at the very least a collared shirt (for guys) is required.
Favorite Dish: The peel & eat shrimp at Bubba's is to die for and the grilled Ahi at Ruth's Chris is wonderful.
