Bubba’s for Breakfast Been to Bubba’s twice for breakfast because people said it was really good. The Corn Beef Hash on the first visit was not up to par and seemed to have very little Corn Beef. I found out I was not alone on that opinion. On the second visit, I ordered the Oatmeal Waffle with a side of... More

Stopped by for lunch with the two teens. Big space. Ordered bubbas pouitine for app and it filled all of us up before rest of food came. The burgers were big and they had a big variety but the taste was plain. The bun needed to be toasted and it took way from the taste of the burger as it... More

This busy spot on Front street is nice for a burger and brew. The tacos aren't bad either. Picnic table dining inside.

Definitely not just "bar food". Varied and interesting menu. Large beer selection, with many local and micros available. Service is friendly and efficient, once you get seated. Try the gumbo.

This is one of the best restaurants in Traverse City. The mahi fish and chips are amazing, the salads are enormous and the burgers are the best! You cannot chose something from the menu and be disappointed! A great place for couples, friends and family.

Went from Norway doing business, and I was told to try out the burger at Bubba´s - it was awesome! The friendly waiter recommended me a really good IPA that tasted perfect to the burger, thumbs up!

I have actually been going to Bubba's often, and always bring my friends there, when we need something to eat! In a city like Traverse City, it is better to eat and buy local, and Bubba's provides that with ALL they can! :) Even local pops which are an amazing change of pace to the normal pepsi/coke products. Tonight we... More

Had dinner late Monday night and it was very busy but got sat down quickly. Had Guacamole and chips before dinner and the guacamole was very good with a different taste than out of the packet you usually get it was a large portion as well, plenty of chips also which was nice. We split the Grown Up grilled cheese... More
