Came at lunch and was immediately seated. Ordered the grouper finger basket. Grouper fingers were served quickly and were hot. A delicious meal and definitely worth returning for a second trip. Highly recommend this place for great seafood.

This is was our second time eating at Bubba's, and it was as good as the first time we ate there. I think it the best seafood place in the area for the money. Plus the food is really good and the atmosphere is GREAT.

We came down for March break from Canada with the entire extended family and stayed in Surfside Beach. We came here one night and had a great night. The blackened grouper was the best in my opinion. Great place to try out in the town.

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!
