Of course, the restaurant is themed around the movie "Forrest Gump." When it's near the time for you to be seated, they call out your party name and invite you to head out to the dock for chow time. Basically it's a fancy way to make you wait in a standing line for another 10 or so minutes.
The service was fast and friendly. I did like the little license plate frames on our table that said "Stop Forrest Stop," which did actually make the staff stop to see what we wanted! The food was okay but very overpriced. Everything has a cute name, of course. Jason enjoyed his fried chicken and my stuffed shrimp was okay. When we asked for the check, it was prompt in coming, and when our trainee waitress took our drinks before we were finished, we were given to-go cups filled with soda.
I found the final bill to be outrageous (two sodas, two entrees, and one appetizer) at over $40. Something the staff didn't mention was that lemonade had to come from the bar and that refills were $0.95 each. We asked for soda instead.
