Based on the movie, “Forrest Gump,” Bubba Gump Shrimp captures the charm and American spirit that made this movie so popular. The entire chain, including the Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant in Orlando, Florida are all decorated with videos of Forrest Gump movies playing, pictures of Forrest Gump characters and popular quotes from the movie.

There is always something fun going on for the kids and the host station out front is the bomb! Bubba Gump Shrimp is truly unique. It even features a “stop Forrest stop” and “Run Forrest run” license plate to draw the attention of your server.

However, the waiters are all very friendly, and they make sure you have a great time while you’re there. The atmosphere is indescribable… you simple have to see it to believe it.
