We love Bubba Gump's in Charleston. Good food, good service. We also like the Bubba Gump Trivia game. My brother and sister in law are experts on the movie and actually stumped the staff with their knowledge.

Had to go! The atmosphere was fun, the food was good and service was good. If you love seafood and a little fun then go here. If I go back I will go back there. It was an hour of enjoyment.

We came here for one drink and some shrimps. The shrimps were delicious and pretty well priced. The drinks are what you would expect from a chain restaurant - huge glasses and a bit too sweet. We sat outside where they have tables with umbrellas....More
