Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Review
Ever since I saw the movie, Bubba Gump, I’ve wanted to visit a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. restaurant. Recently, while on Maui, I spotted one right on the water in a building with a tree growing through the center of it! I just had to investigate! It was very busy, which is always the sign of a really good restaurant, so we opted to wait at the bar. Our table became available within 20 minutes, which was how long we were told we’d have to wait.
Once we were seated, we had so much fun reading over the menu. Of course we broke into our own rendition of, “Let’s see…there’s boiled shrimp, toasted shrimp, deep fried shrimp…”! We ordered the “Bucket of Boat Trash”, which consisted of deep-fried shrimp, lobster chunks, and Mahi Mahi all playfully served in a bucket lined with faux newspaper and coupled with french fries. My friend ordered the Dixie Baby Back Ribs which were fall off the bone tender and the sauce was a perfect blend of sweet and peppery.
The Mojitos were great and very BIG! Our server was excellent. We went for the novelty value more than anything else, and ended up enjoying every aspect! Be sure to make a reservation if you want a table overlooking the ocean. Overall a fun meal in a great location for a couple of tourists having a good time.
