Took my kid there for her birthday and waited forever to get our drinks and food while people were getting served there food and drinks before us and they came in after we had already been seated and gave our order to our waiter. We were so disappointed, the prices were high and we would not have minded that if the service was good but such a BIG disappointment!!! We will NEVER eat here again.
I live here and I was extremely disappointed in every way with this place. It made our city look bad. The place was not busy at all. We had a table of 8. We waited for ever to get our food. Then, they brought out 1 plate and didn't know who it went to. The person ate the food, went out side to smoke a cigarette and came back before anyone else received any plates. Then, when the next two plates came out, they were completely wrong. We asked for a manager, he comes out and says I know we completely butchered this table. Then proceeds to send food back to kitchen. Another person still never receives food, so we then call the manager again. People in the party decides they don't want the food because everyone wanted to eat at the same time. The manager then proceeds to try and talk them into taking the food with them because he didn't want to have to comp the table that he admitted to butchering. This occurred on sunday 2-17-2013 during the day. Whoever the manager was that was on duty at that time should be fired! Poor management, I've worked in the restaurant industry and this was very unprofessional on his part. I even told the staff how bad this looks for them and our city. I would not recommend bringing anyone to this place.

This is a great place for enjoying the French Quarter, the balcony is great for watching the sights and sounds. My favorite dish is the Mahi Mahi with shrimp and a creamy bourbon sauce, yum! Our server was a kick, she was so funny and really made us feel welcome in New Orleans.
I have been to several Bubba Gump's around the country and I have to say that they are normally an easy 5 stars! New Orleans is a weird town with more nostalgia for it's heritage then it's environment actually lives up to, and I found the city pretty dumpy and dirty. Thank God for Bubba, which has a N.O. feel without the grunge getting under your nails and tongue. ;) Not the best Bubba, but still very awesome and the best food anywhere!

A rodent ran across the floor while we were eating...the waitress was nonplussed. What??? At the end of the meal when we were asked about dessert my husband asked if they had chocolate ""mouse""...the waitress was speechless ! The couple in the next booth couldn't stop laughing. WWFD
""Life is like eating at Bubba Gumps you never know what is going to run across the floor.""

The server was nice, the place is neat. The dining experience ends there.
When you are in the French Quarter you have an abundance of very good food around you. The fried shrimp had HEAVY breading and taste like the frozen shrimp you buy in the box, pre breaded....in fact I am convinced. The shrimp and artichoke dip tasted like bad fish, very fishy. Even if there were not in a culinary mecca, they food would still be considered terrible in my book.
Why waste an oppertunity to eat a quality meal on Bubba Gumps prefabbed, frozen food? I cannot think of any.

Bubba Gump restuarant in New Orleans is a great family venue with a fun atmosphere. Been here many times and has never been bad. Service is up beat and prompt. Food is high quality and taste. Granted this is New Orleans and its full of great places to eat but for family dining Bubba Gump simply cannot be beat. I mean I would not take my kids to eat at most local places here but we always make a trip to the Gump when in town.

I have brought a large group in as well...PERFECT restaurant for large groups. I was amazed at how speedy the service was for 40ppl!!
