- Cuisines: Seafood
NileGuide Expert Says:
At the start of Navy Pier, this chain restaurant is mostly for tourists. The food is OK (we give it a 4 out of 10) but par for the course for Navy Pier, the biggest tourist trap in the city.
- In Short
"Forrest Gump" script pages, costumes and still photos fill this tourist favorite, whose menu items get cutesy names like Gumpberry Cobbler. Regardless of what you order (popcorn shrimp, garlic shrimp, nacho dip, key lime pie), expect it to be done in true Southern style, with full-on garlic, sugar or butter. Highlights include enormous Alaskan king crab legs and the Shrimp Net Catch: a bounteous serving of crustaceans steamed in beer with garlic or Cajun spice.
