Bubba Gump Shrimp Company
This downtown warehouse restaurant is a fun place for large groups and casual get-togethers. Anyone who has seen the movie "Forrest Gump" knows that the Gumps know shrimp. Fried shrimp, BBQ Shrimp, Coconut Shrimp, Drunken Shrimp, Shrimp Scampi, Shrimp Shack Pasta;it is all here and more. And all the seafood served is fresh off the restaurant's own shrimp trawlers. Shrimp is not the only thing they do here though. You can order up a platter of Dixie Style Baby Back Ribs, a burger, or a cool, creamy smoothie too.
I joined this forum just to write of my wretched experience today on January 14, 2012. The seafood menu was pathetic. They don't specify what fish is on the platters mostly. They just call it fish. Hushpuppies, which cost pennies to make, were only offered with a few meals. They should be free in a basket as soon as you sit at a table. Regardless, they weren't worth eating anyway. My wife's shrimp were medium 40 count at best. Imported I'm sure. Nothing in that restaurant is local. For these reasons, I ordered the 1/2 pound cheeseburger. A welfare ration of American cheese on an over sized Bubba Burger cooked on a dirty grill is all it was. I would have been better off eating fast food. It was so bad, I couldn't even finish it. To top that off, the fries were cold when they got to my table. The only thing this place has going for it, is the staff and the atmosphere. If you're wanting a real seafood experience, I would recommend Captain D's (yuck), before I recommended this place. - Clay from Charleston, South Carolina. Born and raised.
