I was not expecting that much considering that it's close to times square and most places around there tend to be over priced and poorly made and this place was no exception. The eat and peel shrimp was a joke. Overcooked shrimp smothered in Old Bay Seasoning. I've tasted better shrimp in my grocer's freezer. My boyfriend's fries came to the table ice cold and my salmon was soaked in so much butter and salt that I was unable to eat there. The bill came to almost 70.00 and for what? Who is in the kitchen that is allowing food to come out like that? Save your money and go elsewhere!

We got to the restaurant right at 6:00 p.m. Crowded as anything. waited only 15 minutes. Wife is in wheelchair-staff made accomodations (escorted up elevator to dining room). Wife got Shrimp lovers feast. I got a salad and clam chowder. Pretty good, not anything different than what's served in Cape May NJ where I'm from. The dessert, choclate chip cake with ice cream was great. Worth every dime. Bill came to 47.00. Waiter was personable and gave us drink refills without asking. Onl y waited 20 minutes for our platters. Will go again, maybe try somthing different.

I love me bubba gump, great food, to bad they don't take reservations. I had some fish sandwich there it was VERY GOOD, they have a chocolate/peanut butter shake also which is to die for!

My friend Maria and I went on Monday for dinner. We asked for a table by the window, althought there were few table available, the hostes asked to wait up to 15 minutes. Until we point to the free tables to the waiter. The food was not that good.

I never would have gone to this place except that we had some quests in town who wanted to go there. I was pleasantly surprised by it. Overall I thought it was well done and the food was pretty good. The portions were big enough that my wife and I split a meal.

I've been going to NYC regularly to see shows for the past few years, and almost every time I end up going to Bubba Gump's for dinner. The restaurant is in a perfect spot, right in the middle of Times Square, and is easily accessible from most of the Broadway theaters. Expect a wait of around 20-30 minutes if you come at peak times, but there is a lot to look at while you're waiting. Monitors around the restaurant display a never-ending loop of the Forrest Gump movie and there is also a gift shop on the ground floor. The seating area is upstairs, and large windows open up a beautiful view of the streets of Times Square below. The service is fun and friendly, chatty if you want them to be but unobtrusive if you don't like to talk. They bring out food pretty quickly, even during the busiest hours. The food itself is absolutely delicious and not once have I found anything to complain about. Much of the menu is seafood, but there are plenty of other choices for those who don't like the fishy stuff. And the price is actually quite reasonable by NYC standards. Overall, I would reccomend you try this restaurant, however old you are or whatever your food tastes. You will not be disappointed!

We liked Bubba Gump, fine food at a not too high price, for european standards. Strong Euro helps Us, now. We had Shrimper’s Net Catch, Clam Chowder, Shrimp New Orleans, Sweet Chili Shrimp, a Brooklyn Lager for $ 85 tax&tip incl.
