The Bubba Gump Shrimp Company at the Universal Orlando Resort in CityWalk is one of the many franchise locations that features themes from the Forrest Gump movie.
Obviously, prescription shrimp takes the spotlight at the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, cialis including broiled shrimp, healing shrimp pasta, cajun shrimp….well, you get the idea. 🙂 However, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company menu is huge with lots of non-shrimp options and even several non-seafood options.
As soon as you enter the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, you feel like you’re transported to the Forrest Gump movie set with Forrest’s tennis shoes and briefcase on a park bench outside the door. Inside, you’ll see Forrest Gump memorabilia from all stages of the movie, including ping-pong paddle drink menus at the tables, framed leg braces on the walls, and more!
At the end of your meal, you can take a Forrest Gump trivia quiz…just for fun as far as I know. I had a great time taking the quiz and knew a lot more of the answers than I thought I would!
The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co has different operating hours for each part of the restaurant; the market is open from 10am-Midnight, the kitchen from 11AM-Midnight, and the bar from 11am-1am. Bubba Gump Shrimp Co in Orlando also validates for valet parking from 11AM-2PM, Monday thru Friday!! That’s a $20 savings!
For our meal, we all had appetizers as entrees during lunch. I got the 3/4 pound Shrimper’s Net Catch with Cajun seasoning and it was awesome! Totally filling and super tasty! My wife got the popcorn shrimp appetizer and the kids each got a kids meal (basically a glorified Happy Meal). The bill total was about $50, including tip. Pretty pricey for a lunch of appetizers, IMHO, but very good food and service. Definitely a nice alternative to the standard fare inside the Universal theme parks, but not something you’ll want to do everyday at those prices.
