The food was terrible. Everything was overcooked. Shrimp were rubber, mahi mahi was dry. Menu used to be great, now it's one page of about 12 entrees that are all basically the same thing for prices that are way too high for what you get.

Service was great. Wait staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely not their fault this restaurant is a shadow of what it used to be.

I will not be returning.

Very crowded and understaffed. Our meal took more than 30 min to arrive, and our server was spread out way too thin.

When we arrived we had to wait over five minutes for host to come greet us. Once seated we waited a bit before a waiter came to our table. We were there to celebrate a 21st birthday. Before making reservation I asked if my daughter would be served alcohol due to Colorado license being vertical for those under 21 and not being allowed to get horizontal one until after actual 21st birthday, I was told yes. However, at the restaurant we were told that they do not accept the vertical ID even if it was her actual 21st birthday. Had that been communicated when I initially asked, we would not have wasted our time driving to Denver or at this location. Despite there not being a lot of people we had a long wait time for our food, which was not all that great and we were not offered additional beverages. Great way to ruin special occasion.

We arrived at our reservation time and were seated about 10 minutes later. Our table was quiet and the docor was very cute. Each staff person we encountered was friendly and professional. The menu was limited, did not include hardly any items that were gluetin free. The prices were high for basically fried food.

Across the street from our hotel and it was a cold windy night so the perfect answer was a walk across the street for Shrimp Scampi. It was excellent!

We made reservations for a group of 11 including a high chair and a wheelchair space. We have never been treated this well anywhere else..literally. They gave us our own “room.” They made specific space for the wheelchair to be able to turn around in. The waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and all options. She was attentive but not overbearing. Definitely a positive experience.

The server was extremely nice! Portions were pretty good. The clam chowder was one of the best! Our favorite was Bourbon St Mahi Mahi and grilled shrimp combo! The music was a little loud for us. The server gave my son a fruit bowl when we told her he could not eat gelatin (jello) that came with the kid’s meal. Overall, it was a great experience.

The greeter was rude. She informed us of the long wait and stated that they were starting to take their reservations and dismissed us. So I made a reservation, low and behold there were tables open right away. I showed her my reservation, she looked irritated and said "you will still have to wait, I need to close reservations" I didn't mind waiting 10 minutes or so versus the 45 minute wait she claimed initially. Our server was AMAZING. I unfortunately do not remember her name. She was the only good from this visit. The food was dry like it had been sitting under the heat lamp for a while. I will not be back. The alcohol was weak. Not the experience I expected.

They were out of onion rings and it came with at least half the mean with the group that we had. They only told half the table. They did not substitute with anything and still charged full price. Staff was very nice and had a great time with our group, but the food was disappointing. I hope it was just an off day for the restaurant

The food was great! It took a while to be seated even though the restaurant was basically empty. Not sure if they were just really short staffed or what but it felt a bit like a ghost town in there. Hopefully they’ll be able to fully recover post Covid soon because the coconut shrimp was divine!

Love the higher end Landry’s restaurants but Bubba Gumps was horrible. Shrimp were small and tasteless, and overcooked. Fish and chips smelled funny and was not quality cod if it was even that.

I don’t mind paying a higher price for good food, this place was like an over priced fast food restaurant. My daughter and I had the Crab boil for 2 and the quality was sub par. Most of the menu is fried food poorly prepared. Most likely would not return.
