Service was excellent. Mixed drink yummy. Food super disappointing. Chowder was fishy. Salmon was the only non fried fish available. Why have a fun theme with food that tastes like what you buy at the grocery store? Yuck.

Shrimp was like you bought it in the frozen food section at the grocery store. They know nothing about Southern fried shrimp.

Our party of 6 visited last Saturday evening about 6:30pm. Noticing the restaurant was approximately 1/3rd full, we were seated on the second floor. Loved the decor of the restaurant with all the "Forrest Gump" memorabilia, the establishment has a great feel to it, plus the "Forrest Gump" movie playing on a large screen.

However,

It took quite awhile for a server to come to our table and once they did, took our drink orders. Again it took quite awhile to be served our drinks, and again, I'll say the restaurant was maybe 1/3rd full.

Dinner orders were taken, and "again" a fair amount of time until we had food in front of us. Four out of our party had shrimp dishes, while the other two (who are not seafood fans) had sandwich choices, 1 chicken and 1 BBQ cheeseburger. Apparently the chicken sandwich was good, but let's say Bubba Gumps will never be known for it's cheeseburger. Everyone who had shrimp of one kind or another seemed happy with their meal.

So overall, I'm glad we finally experienced Bubba Gump's. It's nice to eat out at different restaurants, especially after this past year of pandemic crap. But, the experience was not good enough to have us come back for another visit. Not to mention, downtown Denver is so screwed up! Parking is ridiculous and there is so much attention given to the stupid stand up scooter traffic, that drivers beware, especially after dark!

The service was horrible. The food was tasteless. The bartender forgot items ordered and failed to bring my granddaughters drink with her meal. I won’t be returning and will be writing a review on YELP!

We had a large party & the waiter wasn’t very tentative. The restaurant wasnt busy but it took a long time to get our food & my steak wasnt cooked correctly. On the plus side you get a souvenir cup when you order margaritas!

Awesome food and service. We love the Forrest Gump theme. Their specialty (including non-alcoholic) beverages are a favorite. The salmon is excellent, so are the fish and chips.

Service was poor when there was only a few tables. We had to ask our server several times for the same things. The menu has been shortened to only a few things, the quality of those few things were poor. The food also took over an hour to come out of the kitchen, when it did it was cold.

Our waiter was Igor and he was absolutely fantastic, however the food was not. Was here for almost 2 hours before receiving our food and when we did get it- it was cold and not enjoyable. We understand it is Christmas Day, but was not worth the money that was paid for the meal.
