Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
Located on the Riverwalk level of the Golden Nugget Laughlin
In addition to the inside restaurant and bar they feature a covered outdoor deck and dining* right on the Colorado River.
After a long period of seldom playing at the Golden Nugget Laughlin we recently revisited it. One afternoon we stopped in to Bubba Gump's to grab a bite to eat.It was Happy Hour but we didn't take advantage of it. If we had our tab would of been a bit smaller.
Happy Hour is only offered at the bar area.
We ordered two Coronas, a shrimp cocktail and a Forrest's Seafood Feast to split.
The shrimp cocktail was good, the cocktail sauce was even better.
6 shrimp instead of 4 or 5 as is normally seen now in most restaurants.
The feast was a good sampling and was also very good.
The hush puppies were excellent and the Remoulade dipping sauce was very good.
Coronas were only $4.50 each, not a bad price. Caution, watch the drink prices for some of their specialty drinks. Especially those that don't have prices listed. If the cost is a concern to you be sure to ask first before you order. Some of them can be very pricey--even if you do get to keep the souveneir cup or glass. Drinks could easily exceed the food if you have more than one.
With a tip our bill was over $50 for two. Not exactly a bargain considering we had one main entree to split and one appetizer, with two beers. Next time we will check out the Early Bird Menu.
Or better yet sit at the bar and have a couple appetizers and drinks during happy hour.
Service was good and fairly fast, although the staff no longer seems to do the "tourist"
Forrest Gump style routines they did when it first opened. Which is fine with us.
|Outdoor Deck on the Colorado River|
*In the summer on the deck they have misters and in the winter a firepit and outdoor heaters. At times the caddis flies are a bother, they have been more this year than any other we recall. Birds like to visit too but the staff does a good job of keeping them away and the area clean.
There are some good choices on the early bird menu.
