A fun & casual place for dinner at the beach. Not easy to eat healthy here. Fried pickles are good. Peel & eat shrimp is good (but expensive for the quantity). Fries, oysters, burgers. After many visits here won't go back.

Found this place by accident, but glad we did! It's fun and funky, kids love the decor! The food is a little above average fried seafood baskets, but fresh and filling. The service friendly and quick. Great for a casual lunch or dinner!

Just wanted a quick lunch after a long drive from home. This place hit the spot, as a salad and wings were just what we wanted. Cold beers, and reasonable prices. Service excellent.

I only ate here one time and had the grouper sandwich. The portions, like the food, were very average, I thought. It did not take long to be served around 2:00pm.

Average food in a kitschy atmosphere. Dining indoors or out across the street from the beach. Hushpuppies are a definite must.

Bubba's is great at accommodating your needs. Best to ask the staff about something that important. I totally recommend the crab cakes, large and delish!
