I joined this forum just to write of my wretched experience today on January 14, 2012. The seafood menu was pathetic. They don't specify what fish is on the platters mostly. They just call it fish. Hushpuppies, which cost pennies to make,

Had to discuss at great length about what it was I desired to order. It appeared the kitchen staff were unable to make what was ordered from their menu; caeser salad, salmon, side of fries. Very disturbing to have to lobby with the waitperson to get what the customer desired. 062110. 6:05 pm

My husband loves this movie, so when we went, I thought it would be a tourist trap. But, to my surprise, the food was very good. I would definitely go back to this restaurant. Delicious!

We always enjoy Bubba Gumps Seafood Restaurant. It is right in the City Market and you can sit outside on their outdoor patio. We have a little one so this is not a big deal when he starts to make a little noise. The food is great and reasonably prices... Some of my favorites are the hush puppies that are stuffed with crab meat and coconut shrimp for the main dish.

I like all the appetizers here. For the entree, its a toss-up between the mahi mahi and the baby back ribs. I can skip the desserts. The service is pretty good and the staff are friendly. The place stays busy and is kind of noisy. Its a good place for groups, but not a romantic dinner.

I have been several times and the food is delicious, the servings are generous and the service is STELLAR! My favorite entree is the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi, delicious. I love the trivia questions about the movie. The kid's meals are super cute in those paper boats. All around great food and it's a fun place to hang out.

Pros: Outside dining, food quality, atmosphere, menu selection

I moved to SC from the North a couple years ago, and discovered Bubbas. I love it!!!!!!!! It is just the right way to begin or end a day in Charleston. Much more casual and relaxing than many of the restaurants downtown. I can't recall a bad experience there. The staff is friendly (as most Southerners are) and really know their stuff! Loved the "I'm Stuffed Shrimp" and their sweet tea! Very family friendly.

Although this restaurant is a chain, it offers a wide selection of entrees at reasonable prices. There is a wonderful grilled vegetable meal that will please even the pickiest of vegetarians.

typical chain-like food. very disappointing with disinterested servers. Probably not a bad place to just have a quick beer but nothing more.

Pros: family friendly

Cons: lousy food, poor value

wow, this place does not hold a candle to some of the other restaurants in town. the staff was nice, not very knowledgeable of the menu though. the food was very commercial. if you actually care about good food, this is not the place for you. keep in mind, i am by no means a food snob, but there are a ton of local resaurants with much better food a way better prices.

Pros: not very crowded, no wait to be seated, nice staff

Cons: below average fried food

We went for lunch. The wait was short. We ordered the appetizer sampler and a shrimp po-boy. They were both okay. The service was a little slow. The day we went draft beer wasn't available, but they had beer in cans. We were disappointed in the food. It just wasn't that good.

I wish that we had one of these in or near Montgomery, AL! This place was wonderful! Everyone in our party (4) ordered something different and it was hard to say what was the best. If we were staying in Charleston, we would have gone back for dinner, it was that good. But we were just in town for the day. They have these cute signs on the table that read "Run Forest Run." But when you need your server, you change the sign to read "Stop Forest Stop." My advice is, if you ever make it to Charleston, make sure you add Bubba Gump to your list of places to visit before you leave.

Originally, from Charleston...I know the rep Bubba Gump's received when coming to Charleston from all the competing seafood restaurants. HOWEVER, this place goes above and beyond in service, quality, tasty food and overall experience!!! Fun for both families and friends, this is a great laid back place to go enjoy one of their tasty specialty drinks, a "Bucket of Boat Trash" (Seafood combo) on a sunny afternoon while sitting on their great patio taking in the sites of the City Market. Also, they have a dog friendly patio area if you are a pet lover!!! And tasty dog cookies for your pooch. However, if you aren't fond of furry friends, the patio is so large....you don't have to sit close at all. Freshen up on the movie before you go....

My wife and I had lunch there Saturday last. Ate in the open air with the pigeons. Could not believe they seated people with their dogs. Anyway, we had a bucket of shrimp each. Not too bad except that the shrimp were on the small side. Definitely for tourists. Wait staff is nice but not too effective.
