Bubba Gump's

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by CaRJuNKeGrL on May 26, 2005

This place is a blast. They have several locations across the United States, as well as some internationally. The entire restaurant is themed around the movie "Forrest Gump." All of the staff is full of knowledge about the movie, and they invite you to participate in trivia contests. The fun staff is one of the great features that bring this place alive.

The San Francisco location is located right at the end of Pier 39, so you get a full view of the marina and bay. The inside is full of decorations related to the movie. One of my favorite quotes inside the restaurant is the sign saying, "I gotta pee," posted above the entrance to the restrooms. That cracks me up every time.

I think one of the best features of this entire restaurant is how you call the attention of your waiter, or any waiter for that matter. On your table, you have two signs shaped like license plates, a blue one with the words "RUN FORREST RUN" and a red one with the words "STOP FORREST STOP." Anytime you need anything, you just flip the sign to "STOP FORREST STOP" and the nearest waiter will assist you, ensuring a quick response.

The food here is really good. I've thoroughly enjoyed it every time. Different entrées have names such as Bubba's Bucket of Boat Trash, Ping Pong Shrimp, and Hubba Bubba Fried Shrimp. My favorite is The Ultimate Combo. You definitely have to try Bubba's Far Out Dip. It's absolutely delicious. Their mixed drinks are very good as well.

All in all, this place has become one of my favorite spots to eat. The food is great, and the atmosphere is loads of fun.
