Bubba Gump Menu Prices

Bubba Gump is a seafood and shrimp restaurant chain, inspired by the 1994 movie “Forrest Gump”. The film presents, with humor and irony, the events and experiences of Forrest Gump (played by Tom Hanks), a young man with below-average intelligence.

He runs all his childhood together with his best and only friend, Jenny. His mother teaches him how to live and lets him choose his destiny. Forrest enlists in the army and goes to Vietnam, where he meets Dan and Bubba, wins medals, and creates a shrimp fishing fleet. All this time, he inspires people to run and play ping-pong, releases songs, and makes donations.

Brand history and connection to Forrest Gump

The first Bubba Gump restaurant was opened in 1996 in Monterey, California, and ran through a partnership between Viacom and Rusty Pelican Restaurants. However, the story of this business starts one year before, in 1995, when the entrepreneur Anthony Zolezzi purchased the rights to the name “Bubba Gump Shrimp Co” from Paramount Pictures. He was trying to help the seafood company Meridian Products, which was having some financial problems.

The line of packaged shrimp products “The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.” were sold in supermarkets all over the United States of America and across the world. In that period a friend of Zolezzi, who was working in the seafood restaurant business, proposed to him to license the name. So, Zolezzi discussed with the Rusty Pelican Restaurant and Paramount to find the first Bubba Gump restaurant. It was a real success, which determined its franchising on international markets.

In 2010, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. seafood restaurant chain was purchased by Landry’s Inc. and the headquarters of the company were moved to Houston, Texas. Before that, these were located in Hollywood, California.

Currently, there are thirty-four Bubba Gump restaurant locations all over the world. Twenty-two of these are in the United States of America, three are located in Japan, four can be found in Mexico, and one each in Qatar, Mainland China, Canada, Indonesia, and Hing Kong.

Our review

Bubba Gump Menu ItemsThe Bubba Gump menu includes mainly shrimp meals, but also other seafood dishes, as well as Cajun and Southern cuisine because the characters of Bubba and Forest were from Alabama. Also, some of the dishes are named after the movie characters, such as Forrest’s Seafood Feast, which is the restaurant’s bestseller, and Jenny’s Catch.

You should plan on spending around $20 for each of these famous dishes. For another $6 you can add a skewer of shrimp or a salad to your meal.

The food is prepared fresh, on order with the best quality ingredients. All the food items are full of flavor and perfectly spiced.

The staff here is very friendly and the atmosphere is casual and fun. Customers can enjoy playing “Forrest Gump” movie trivia and catch the attention of their waiter with the “Stop, Forrest, Stop” sign.
