Fodor's Expert Review Bubba Gump Shrimp Company

$$ Kailua-Kona American

This may be a chain named after an old Tom Hanks movie, but it has one of the nicest oceanfront patios in Historic Kailua Village, and the food's not bad, provided you know what to order. Anything with popcorn shrimp in it is a good bet, and the pear and berry salad (a combination of chicken, strawberries, pears, and glazed pecans) is the perfect size for lunch. Soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers round out the menu. Daily happy hour includes discounted appetizers, fish tacos, popcorn shrimp, and tropical cocktails.
