Thanks Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. for hosting my family.

Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. is more than just a seafood restaurant, it’s a fun, interactive restaurant with a Forrest Gump theme. It’s a nice way to end the evening with a refreshing drink and meal after a full day at Universal Studios Hollywood. If you’ve never visited the restaurant before this is what you can expect from it.

Forrest Gump Trivia
After you sit down at the table, get settled in and order, your waiter/waitress will come to your table and test your knowledge on how well you know the Forrest Gump movie. This was a lot of fun as I thought I knew just about everything being that I saw the movie a dozens times but there were some ones that stumped me.

Wide Selection of Food and Drinks
There were plenty of items to choose from food and drinks on the menu that is based on the movie such as Lt. Dan’s Surf & Turf. Some of our favorite foods that we tried were the following.

How to Call the Waiter/Waitress
To get the attention of your waiter/waitress just flip over the license plate sign that says “Stop Forrest Stop” and if you fine then leave it to say “Run Forrest Run”. 

With all of this much fun in one place it’s hard not to stop in for a drink, good food or just to check out the merchandise. Visit Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Hollywood next time you are in the area.
