I dined at The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co as part of a Cannery Row Familiarization trip; however, all opinions are my own.
Bubba Gump – Cannery Row: Monterey, CA
If you have a fondness for good seafood, and a laid back atmosphere, then The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. on Cannery Row (Monterey, CA) is the dining experience for you. Located next to the Intercontinental Hotel, it boasts an incredible view of the water from the outdoor dining area. Shielded from the winds by glass walls, you get the experience of eating al fresco, but with the added comfort of heating.
The Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. has a lot to offer its guest from its fun atmosphere all the way down to its delicious menu options. Whether you’re there for their poultry, their delicious salads, their burgers or their seafood, there’s something for everyone to try and to enjoy.
Menu items to try while you visit include Lt. Dan’s Drunken Shrimp, Net Catch Entree, Dixie Style Baby Back Ribs, Steamed Crab Legs, Classic Cesar Salad, 1/2 Pound All-American with Fries, Veggie Mushroom Burger, Mama Blue’s Shrimp Gumbo, and much, much, MUCH more!
Kids will enjoy the casual atmosphere and staff are fabulous at finding ways to keep cranky little ones from making a fuss while waiting for dinner. Our table was entertained by our waitperson who played Bubba Gump Trivia with us. We were so good that he had to pull out the tough questions which we handled easily!
There are many delicious desserts to try in addition to after dinner cocktails and coffees. The central location makes it an easy walking distance from most hotels and other attractions. It’s popular with families, so it’s not a spot for a romantic dinner or two, but if you’re looking to have a little fun, blend in with the tourists taking photos in Forrest Gumps shoes, and like a chaotic atmosphere where laughter and loud talking are the norms, this is the place for you.
After dinner walk out onto the pier and check out the water. Head towards the Continental Hotel for some great views and more privacy.
