Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Restaurant Description

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is a chain seafood restaurant inspired by the Forrest Gump movie. The Orlando location in CityWalk features a restaurant and a market. The restaurant has movie themed dishes like Mama Blue's Shrimp Gumbo and Jenny's Catch of the Day. The market sells Gump themed merchandise and souvenirs. If you're a Forrest Gump fan, you'll love the décor, which includes lots of movie memorabilia. The servers also get in on the fun by challenging diners with movie trivia (they know a lot about Forrest, so get ready to be stumped). You can call your server over to your table any time with a nifty sign that says Stop Forrest Stop.

UO Fan Guide Tips

  • Look for the bus stop bench from the Forrest Gump movie in front of the restaurant to take advantage of a great photo opp.
  • Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. opens at 11:00 a.m. each day. We like to stop in right after they open so that we can get seated quickly and get a really fast lunch. (Note: This tip works for every restaurant in CityWalk; if you stop in right after they open, you'll never have to wait for a table.)

Review of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is a good place to eat even if you aren't crazy about the Forrest Gump movie. The restaurant has a large menu and the widest selection of fish and shrimp dishes on Universal Orlando property. Prices are on par with most of the other table service restaurants in CityWalk. If you do like Forrest Gump, this place is a can't miss. You'll find movie references at every table and on every wall in the restaurant. We highly recommend walking around a little after you have ordered your food so that you can really take it all in. The dining area is very large and is split into a series of smaller rooms, which means there is a new Forrest Gump discovery around every corner.

The food itself is pretty tasty. The menu is seafood heavy, but there are other options available as well. Some of the things we have tried include:

  • Accidental Fish and Shrimp: This dish consists of broiled Mahi Mahi with grilled shrimp, roma tomatoes, and lemon butter sauce. The fish was light and flaky. The tomatoes were fresh. The shrimp was nicely seasoned and tasted really good in the lemon butter sauce. We would probably get this again.
  • All American Burger:  This 1/2 pound burger can be customized with add-ons like cheese, BBQ sauce, and frizzled onions. For a $1 more, you have the option of getting a patty made of grass-fed Angus beef from 44 farms. We have gotten two different versions of this burger and it tasted good both times. We would definitely get this again.
  • Captain's Fish and Chips: This dish is on the Forrest's Favorites menu. It consists of beer-battered cod, French fries, coleslaw, and homemade tartar sauce. You get three large pieces of fish. For an extra $5.00, you can get an even bigger portion of fish, which would make this dish easily shareable. The batter was crisp, nicely seasoned, and really tasty. The coleslaw was also really good. We would definitely get this again.
  • Hook, Line and Sinker: This is a best of the best dessert sampler platter featuring Mama's Warm Bread Pudding, Homemade Biscuits Topped with Fresh Strawberries, and a Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae. This dessert platter was absolutely divine and contained enough treats to share between two or more people. We would definitely get this again. If you don't go in to Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for a meal, think about stopping in just for the decor and the Hook Line, and Sinker dessert platter.

The service has been good both times we visited Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Our food also came out fast and hot both times.
