On Saturday we returned to Bubba Gumps and I will tell you why. After parking the car and walking over to the restaurant, there was a few people in line before us. It only took about 10 minutes and we were seated right at the window side overlooking the water.
Our two servers (one in training) were Joe, Sr. Server and Melody,( in training). These two were on top of everything….the mode of operation in the restaurant, drinks and food options. We ordered our drinks (you already know that one) and Don ordered the New Orleans shrimp dish with Jasmine rice and I ordered the crab stuffed large shrimp with Jasmine rice. Oh yeah, we started out with popcorn shrimp as the appetizer. Gotta love their popcorn shrimp.
Without saying, the food is ALWAYS great and then we ordered, to share, the infamous key lime pie. Thank goodness we shared as the portion is huge.
Two things we keep noticing are:
#1 – everyone works as a team. Each one seems to help the other out when needed and
#2 – the young manager has total and consistent control over the operation of the restaurant. He doesn’t look very old but he really knows his position.
Will we return? ABSOLUTELY!
