The tabletop itself has other gumpisms scrawled across it, like, "Stupid is as stupid does," and even Bubbaisms, like "Shrimp is the fruit of the sea..." A blue license plate that says "Run Forest Run" is in a metal holder, and our waiter explains to us that whenever we need anything, we just need to flip the plate to the red side that says "Stop Forrest!". That way they always know who to help. Cool!
There's lots of fish and cajun stuff on this menu, just like lots of other New Orleans restaurants. I wasn't in a very seafoody mood that night and copped out by ordering a cheeseburger. Kelly, however, in the Bubba Gump spirit ordered "Bubba's After the Storm Bucket of Boat Trash", a bucket full of shrimp, lobster and mahi mahi, served with cole slaw and fries. Yum.
The atmosphere of the place is nothing spectacular. Pictures of the actors from the movie grace the walls, nice pictures of Jenny looking angelic, always the way Forrest saw her. If you didn't enjoy the movie, you probably wouldn't like this place. I'm sure that you can get better shrimp in other New Orleans haunts, so being a fan is the only real reason to come.

The food is superb! Please try the stuffed shrimp with crab over rice. Beware of the side of mashed potatoes -- it's like a small mountain with French onions sprinkled on top. I loved the signs they have on the table to get the server's attention. Either you flip it to "Run Forrest" meaning everything is ok, or you can flip it to "Stop Forrest" and the server will recognize it immediately. I will definitely patronize there again the next time I am in town because I didn't get dessert and it looked delicious, but I just couldn't eat another bite.

Everything so plump and fresh. We feasted like kings without burning a hole in my wallet. Always a plus.
Wait staff very freindly and helpful.
