Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.–Las Vegas

We first tired Bubba Gump in Maui back in 2016 and had a pleasant experience so we tried again this time in LV.

We had some trouble finding the restaurant because we were looking all over on the street level.  Turns out it is on the 2nd level of the building we were standing next to which was largely a drug store.

We got in for a late lunch and the place was almost empty.  We were seated immediately while the hostess informed us that they were giving out free appetizers for their guests.  The free appetizer of the day was their spinach dip.

It has a big plate of tortilla chips and warm spinach/cheesy dip which we had nothing to complain about since it was free.

For our mains, we first got the Shrimp Po Boy.

This had a big load of fried shrimp on top of soft bread with mayo, fresh cucumber and lettuce.  The shrimp was fried very well with a light batter.  It had a big serving of fries too.

Next is Forrest’s Seafood Feast.

This had fish and chips, fried shrimp and something they call seafood hush pups which are the round balls you see in the picture.  This was not that great as it seemed over fried as you can see from the dark batter compared to the shrimp po boy batter above.

The service was fast and the food overall was acceptable.  We would have preferred the feast plate was fried a minute or so less so it wasn’t so dark.

Our server was trying to heard to be affectionate which made it look too fake and condescending we’d suggest they dial it down a notch or two.  We also think they should put up some more signs at street level to make it easier for first timers to find the restaurant.

SFDD gives 3 out of 5 Delights.
