We had the all you can eat shrimp. It was much better than I had hoped. Very fresh and tender. The view watching the ships was fun for our group. We also liked the bread pudding. A great place.

This place is a little off the beaten path but worth the trip. Very interesting decore, a lot of dead stuffed animals. I think the children enjoyed seeing the different types of animals, some I wasn't sure what they were. We had the seafood platter, fried. Very good food, fish light and fluffy and the shrimp were huge but stay... More

Been a few years since we first came to Bubba's. We obviously do not come every day...but probably once every 2 to 3 months throughout the year. Still enjoy the endless shrimp Monday special and we bring folks from out of town to enjoy the seafood and view of the big ships. We have always had great service. Occasionally my... More

I got the fried combination plate, which was enough for two people, so ended up carrying a to-go home. The setting is on the water, so that was awesome to be able to watch the boats and ships pass, and loved that, and one other thing that was really neat was the wild parrots that have taken up residence on...

I like going to Bubba's. The food is good and if you go on Monday, they have all you can eat shrimp. It is fun to be able to watch the ships and birds go by while you eat.

I have eaten here numerous times. Last night (Friday Sept. 9) my boyfriend and the people from the booth behind us noticed a mouse running back and forth between the tables next to us. Needless to say, we lost our appetites and notified the waitress who sent over the manager. The manager handled the situation by informing us "that's life... More
