Judging by the growth of this movie-themed chain, whose domain extends from the Mall of America to the Tokyo Dome, there must be more fans of Forrest Gump—and "Chilly shrimp"—than we thought. The food is a combination of Cajun and seafood (do you remember what Bubba loved to catch?). There’s a good children’s menu; you signal the waitress with a “Stop, Forrest, Stop” sign; and don’t even ask what happens if they find out you’ve never seen the movie. It’s best to ask for Gump's House private room so you can have a little sanity. In the market for a souvenir? You'll find everything from boxer shorts to golf balls, not to mention the inevitable boxes of chocolate.
