Nice late lunch with friends. We had shrimp and catfish platters. Food was hot and tasty. Service was good as well. Note that most of the menu is fried food.

My husband had the all you can eat catfish. They were big pieces and he said some of the best he'd had. I had a blackened mahi mahi sandwich. It too was great. Really enjoyed our meal.

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!
