Sadly, my entire party was disappointed. From the start to finish was terrible. We were seated behind the fountain drinks which was a terrible view. After approximately 10 minutes I had to ask the hostess to send over our waitress -Toni. The heat did not seem to be on or barely working mentioned this to our waitress Toni numerous times and was told the Manager is aware but is adamant the heat is working. The food was extremely over priced, did not resemble the pictures in the menu, was slightly hot with very little seasoning. A very disappointing experience.

We loved this restaurant before. It is not Landry’s owned now and shows. Waited 30 minutes to get waited on and we were one of 6 tables in the restaurant. Food was cold. Service was mediocre. Will not return.

DO NOT EAT HERE. It is such a rip off. The food is overpriced fast food. I ordered Mac and cheese for my 2 year old and it was legit from a Kraft box in the microwave. We spent around $200 on trash. I regret eating here soooo much, please please SAVE YOUR MONEY!

Won’t be going to anymore Bubba Gumps after this. I went at an awkward time so I can forgive the service a bit but the food in our entire party was sub par at best. If you decide to dine here get fried foods as you can hide poor quality easier when its fried.

Food was expensive & of poor quality. I ordered the shrimp scampi & received a small bowl. Shrimp were not seasoned. We were served our first course and did
not have silverware. We asked a passing server for
some but that person never returned. When our server came to check on us we had to ask for silverware again. She returned and handed me 3 forks and 3 knives all wrapped in one napkin. She didn’t even set the table. All around experience was very disappointing. I would not eat here again.

I’ve Never been to a Bubba Gumps before and this was not good from the moment we walked in. Rude person tried to seat us. The one saving grace for us to stay for at least drinks is Toni the Bartender! Thanks Toni!

Service was friendly and helpful. I had Jennie’s Catch and it was tremendous! My sister had the Mahi Mahi and talked about it for days. It’s a must when visiting Baltimore.

I made reservations for our family of 5. When we arrived, the hostess appeared annoyed that we expected the reservation to be honored. The table around us were cluttered with used cups. The food was average. One of our dishes was delayed by 20 minutes because we were not informed that they had run out of that dish for the evening. Overall, we were very disappointed with the restaurant given that we are big fans of the movie. Hope things improve there!

Still Waited at least 25 minutes, got there 10 mins before reservations time. Bathrooms smelled like they had NOT been cleaned in years. Drinks took a very long time to get. They ran out of the stuff shrimp which is what i wanted to try. Waiter didnt added tip to bill and came back to say she forgot to add it.
Dont plan on going back.

Longue attente pour s’asseoir alors qu’il y avait beaucoup de place.
20min pour prendre la commande, 45min pour être servi, le dressage de mon assiette nouvelle Orléans à revoir complètement, très mal présente par rapport au menu.
J’adore cette chaîne, j’y vais à chaque voyage aux usa et là on a été vraiment très déçu

Food was okay; nothing wrong with it just not outstanding either. The bar drinks were not very good; we ordered whiskey sours and they tasted like non-alcoholic lemonade. The service was very good; the server was prompt and checked on us appropriately.

Amateur hour at professional prices. No reason at all to eat below average chain food fare with so many good seafood restaurants in the neighborhood. Skip Bubba.

No waiter came to the table for at least 10 minutes after being seated. It was not busy. I left.

I should have read the reviews. I am not the first person to leave before seeing a waiter THIS MONTH!

Initial seating was too windy due to overactive a/c but we moved and it was fine after that. Abby was awesome and the manager (didn’t get her name) was great too. Most importantly, the food was awesome!

I like the chain, overall. But this location is not a good representation of BGS as a whole, in my opinion. The service was slow. The patrons at the table next to me got tired of waiting and just left. Then a few mins later, I saw a patron who was tired of waiting to be greeted by his server that he got up and walked over to flag somebody down.
Luckily, the food didn't disappoint. :-)

I was very disappointed with Baltimore location, we have been to the NYC location and Orlando location both were amazing! The only upsides to our visit were the views of the bay, and the food, which was very good. Service was ehh!! And NO TRIVIA!! which was something we look forward to. Won't be returning to this location.

I made a reservation and when we arrived on time we had to wait another 15 minutes to be seated. We told the waiter we were celebrating a big birthday but nothing was done about it like at other restaurants. Also there were no vegetarian food offered on the menu at the restaurant although online the menu had options for a vegetarian. We did not find this out until we sat down and looked over the menu and asked the waiter. The food was okay, small portions for the price and the lemonade tasted nasty. Lots of kids and noise. We only went because my birthday child wanted to go there to celebrate. Probably will not go again.

Visited this location about 4 years ago and loved it! This time, not so much. The staff enthusiasm was the first change we noticed. They used to be upbeat and fun! This time it was like drudgery! Then we were shown to a table with dirty chairs. When we pointed that out the chairs were switched from another table, but still not cleaned! The food was OK, just OK. Disappointed as enjoyed it so much we looked forward to a nice dining experience. Oh well, things change and so does my rating of this establishment.

We had a wonderful experience at Bubba Gumps shrimp. There were 7 of us including a baby and a toddler. The atmosphere was great. The food was delicious and there was an option for everyone. We would definitely come back.

The staff was great, full of energy. But the food was not that good. It wasn’t flavorful and at least four of my family members were experiencing upset stomachs and cramping up to two days after eating at the restaurant. I was disappointed, I was very excited about going and had my daughters 19th birthday gathering there.

My husband was a little disappointed with his meal. It was nothing like pictured on the menu & you need to step up the cleaning of the restaurant a little but overall everyone was friendly & we were seated immediately & the kids menu selection was one of the best we've seen since it offers more healthy selections.
