Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Monterey: 4 reviews and 9 photos
Bubba Gumps is the unusual chain restaurant with a concept based off of a movie (Forest Gump). The best thing about Monterey's location is that it is the first Bubba Gump Shrimp Company Location, and it opened way back in 1996. Their restaurants are family friendly and casual, maybe that's why it seems to be such a popular place... even better, you don't have to think much to come here: since it's a chain, all of their locations have virtually identical food and atmosphere. Their menu has a variety of sandwiches, shrimp appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and mostly seafood entrees.
I have lived just a few blocks from Bubba Gumps for almost two years, and I only ventured into Bubba Gumps once, and even then only to get drinks. Its a friendly enough place, on the water with great views, and a relaxing dockside environment. Fact is, its still a chain, and I have a hard time justifying frequenting a major corporate entity when there are so many great local restaurants in and around Monterey. Want seafood? Try the Monterey Fish House. Crave that location on the water? How about the Sand Bar and Grill? Even the Fish Hopper is locally owned.
