Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.

After our rafting trip we decided to eat a late dinner and go to Cade's Cove to see some animals in the wild (because seeing the bear the day before just wasn't good enough :)). As I said before, it's been 10 years since I've been to Gatlinburg and I had forgotten just how long it takes to drive through Cade's Cove. We headed out there just before dark, around 8:00. We finally made it out of the cove at 10:00, and we only drove 1/2 of the loop. We saw some deer and water buffalo, but it was too dark to take pictures. Anyway, by the time we made it back to town we were all STARVING, and Luke was sound asleep. On the plus side, there was no wait at Bubba Gump's at 10:30 pm! This was THE.BEST.PLACE.EVER!! The food was awesome and the service was great. The atmosphere was so fun, and family oriented, even if it was midnight by the time we left! We weren't the only crazy people with young children out on the town so late either!
As I said, the service was great. There were these signs on every table. If it was flipped to the blue "Run Forrest Run" side, the staff knew everything was peachy at your table.

Poor baby, he was so tired, and not happy about being woke up to go eat, but 3 out of 4 of us agreed, it was way past dinner time and we were famished!

The other side of the sign was "Stop Forrest Stop." This meant we needed something at our table and when it was flipped to this side, one of the staff would stop and yell "STOP FORREST STOP!!" and see what we needed. Kaylyn thought this was hilarious and kept flipping the sign.
