Remember the movie Forrest Gump and how he said he would open up the Forrest Gump Shrimp Co? Well this is it! Its a really fun restaurant. We were directed to follow the smiling faces into the restaurant.
We were welcomed by so many happy and pleasant younger people who worked there. There were sooo many of them working there and hustling and bustling all over the place. It was a really smiley pleasant spot to be. Everyone seemed to be having fun.
At our table was a stand with this sign in red. Its the size of a car license plate. If all is well we leave it on the "green" sign
When we needed to catch someone's attention we were to turn it over to the "red" sign. Someone would be right over and we tried it and it worked!
While we sat there our waiter came and played Forrest Gump trivia with us. Marc was good at it...me not so good. But we were given clues. That was fun.
I took some pictures of some the signs hanging all over the restaurant. Do you remember them from the movie?
We had something cold to drink. Marc had a beer and I had a strawberry lemonade drink. Oh so yum on a hot day.
We shared these very delicious shrimp appetizers. Oh my there were soooo yum!!
We were given a plastic bib. Marc wasn't going to put his on and I told him he had better! So he did and was glad he did because our dinner was splatting all over the place. *l*..
Another sign on the wall. Cute.
We both ordered the same meal. They each came in our own pot and when we took the lid off we got to work on all the seafood. There was lobster, crab, shrimp, scallops, clams and we used our trusty little tools to pry everything over. There was delicious colesaw, jasmine rice and of course sourdough bread.
I knew I was in the right washroom when I read that it was "Jenny's".
and Marc went into "Bubba's".
I remember these words and had to snap them off the sign on another wall. True spoken words.
And one more sign....
It was such a delicious meal and fun atmosphere. Everything was hustling and bustling. There was a nice picturesque view of the water beside us also but I didn't get a picture of it.
So when in Monterey be sure to visit Bubba Gumps! Judi xoxo
