I've lived in Chicago for years, and everytime I have friends or relatives visit we eat at Bubba Gump. The food is delicious, the portions are plenty, the drinks are tasty, and I don't think I've ever had so much fun at a restaurant. Their waitstaff is the best in the city -- where do they find such wonderful people?! Their gift shop has the neatest stuff too, like ""Run Forrest Run"" license plates! They even have a Forrest Gump impersonator from time to time who is just wonderful. If you live in Chicago or you're just visiting, eat here -- you won't be disappointed! The only draw back is the wait, but trust me, it is SO worth it! Remember if there's a 2 hour wait that there's probably a good reason for it! The best place to eat on Navy Pier -- heck, the best in Chicago!
Pros: fun atmosphere, delicious food/drink, friendly waitstaff
Cons: long wait, no reservations
