From the time you enter the restaurant until you leave you will have a fun and relaxing time. We don't usually go for chain type restaurants but as there isn't one of these restaurants anywhere near where we live, we thought we'd give it a try. The wait was very short. Less than 10 minutes and there is a lot to look at while you wait. The views are nice since the restaurant is upstairs. We started with some of their flavored lemonades (we were here for lunch). The portion sizes were huge. Our main waiter was fun and helpful. The neat thing about this restaurant is at every table there is a Run Forrest Run or Stop Forrest Stop sign that you can flip. So if you need something, you put the stop sign up and ANY waiter will stop and help. It makes service very fast. And the second you flip it over, someone stops. The food was excellent. No one got the same thing so we had eight people that all loved their meals. I think that says something positive about the restaurant. I do think the prices were a little high for some things, but you were right in midtown, in the middle of everything, so I don't think they were that bad. So overall it was a fun, relaxing lunch.

I absolutely loved this place! Started with a Bayou Surprise cocktail while I read the menu. It was delicious - I had to order another with my dinner. The cocktail got me in the mood and I ordered with excitement: started with the sassy hot Cajun Shrimp which came with garlic toast (caliente!), and then the "I'm stuffed Shrimp". Stuffed with what I think was lobster, they were so good I ate it all and yes, I was stuffed. But hold the phone! I wanted Bubba's desserts. So I had a Chocolate Cookie Sundae. Say it with me: sinful and sensational! I had so much fun, I slipped my shoes off and walk out in my bare feet - heels in hand!

This is a fun place to take tourists visiting the city. The view upstairs is really great! The food is VERY good. I have been here several times and had really hit or miss experiences with the service, which is not a good thing considering this place has the typical high priced Times Square menu. The atmosphere is so fun that I dont think it could be beat downtown, but the prices could be beat just about anywhere on the Island!

I had a preconceived notion that this would be a tourist-targeted ripoff, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The margarita was great, and very plentiful, the popcorn shrimp were cooked perfectly and presented in a popcorn box, and my bbq chicken salad was huge and delicious. My husband had a stir-fry with very fresh vegetables. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere is fun, interesting and bright. I plan to take my daughter and her friends back the next time we are in the city. Prices are not cheap, but not crazy (approx $12 for the salad and most shrimp dinners are approx. $20).

i've been there a few time and the greatest hype is the theme of forest gump. The food is good but they need to give out bigger portions and the variety of food on the menu should be more most of the foods are friend and there lack a lot of thing for it to be considered in the 10 of seafood restaurants. There prices aren't very high but for the amount of food u get the prices should be a little lower. But overall it is a place I would eat again but not to often

Loved the location, atmosphere, view, service...and the fact we had no wait at all! (2pm weekday). Children loved everything about it. Amazingly delicious coleslaw...but otherwise food disappointing. Shrimps/slipper lobster/fish bucket greasy and tasteless. Fries pale & soggy. Wouldn't go back.
