Bubba Gump Shrimp Co Gatlinburg – Menu, Hours, and Parking

Area Info : Eat : Family Restaurants : Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

For a beautiful resort town in the mountains, it’s a bit surprising that Gatlinburg has a quite an ocean vibe. With the fantastic Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies as one of the top attractions in the Smoky Mountains, you can enjoy beautiful sea life though you're many miles from the coast.

In the same grain, the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company in Gatlinburg offers top quality seafood in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee. Hailed for its family-friendly atmosphere and delicious southern-style dishes, this popular Gatlinburg restaurant is a favorite stop for many families on vacation.
