Went there about 4 years ago and the service was so bad that I don't have the desire to go back and see if things have changed or even try the new location in SF. \r

You would expect Bubba Gump's to really suck. Chain restaurant based on a movie about a retard. (Sorry, that was a bit crass but basically true) In reality, the food is actually pretty good. My homey Satchel is more of a fish guy than I am , but we have enjoyed out meals here for the most part. Great location and views of Monterey Bay and right on historic and now cool Cannery Row. While I would give the food 4 stars, the service is spotty, maybe 2 stars. Even with the signage that is supposed to attract your server, we found the service simply frenetic, making the whole dining experience basically exhausting and loud. In other words, it is simply work to eat here, thus the rating.

Bubba Gumps keeps being our choice for a fun apmosphere and great prices. The food is very predictable ( which we love) and the noise level is LOUD- but we love this place. We always get a Bucket of Trash ( don't ask- just order it) and the spicy peel and eat shrimp. We wait for a window table and always have fun. We are returning to Monterey this week to cerebrate my husbands birthday and I cannot wait to embarass the stuffing out of him when the Bubba Bunch make him get up and sing to him!!
And- oh yes, we are in our 60's- so- this is not just for kids. Oh wait- thats what we feel like when we are there. Enjoy- its worth the wait !!!!

Where else but on the historic Cannery Row would you find a place like this.. I have been to Bubba Gumps about four times and have always had a good expierance. At times there is a wait and yes it is a little loud, so if you are looking for a quiet romantic spot Bubba Gumps not for you...

People are eating and having a good time, I don't care for the drinking that some do but to each his own. it all makes for good atmosphere. I have never had a rude waitor or waitress and they were always quick on the soda refills. They have a decent selection of food, and the portions are good.

I would go back again but will stick to the off days or rainy days when the mass amounts of tourists stay home.

"And that's all I got to say about that"

Rich deserts, great portions, wonderful view and lively atmosphere. This place is usually full with upbeat customers and smiling workers. If you love the smell of the ocean and a warm welcome you'll love this place. Best enjoyed on a cold winter day.

Bubba Gump's is one of my favorite restaurants at Monterey. It is also a walking distance from the Aquarium. The food is always great and location is beautiful. I went there one tme during the night and we had gotten a window seat. I went to go look at the water and it was sooooo pretty........ I think the waiters are very nice and quick. I would definitly come here again!

A very fun, busy atmosphere. The views were beautiful. The food was great. Would recommend it. Just watch out! Drink refills aren't free! We didn't know until we got our bill, and they had just refilled our drinks, even though we were getting ready to leave!

Food was good and the view was great. Coming a liitle early for lunch was key, as we avoided the crowds and had a window seat.

We went to Bubba Gumps for the first time with our family and we loved it! It was a very upbeat, fun place to eat. It is kid friendly and their food is wonderful! They have beautiful ocean views as well.

My husband and I recently came back from Monterey and we had lunch at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the views of the ocean are breathtaking.

I can't remember what my husband and I had to eat here, but there were no complaints, it was good. The ambience was fun and enjoyable. Although we're not usually social outgoing people, we had fun trying to answer the trivia questions from the movie Forrest Gump. We sat outside and the view was beautiful.

Great location on Cannery row, crowded and can be noisy. Nice choice of food, prices are resonable. Service is very good. View of Monterey Bay wonderful, very romantic. Best place to eat on Cannery Row with ocean view.
