We had never been to Murrells Inlet and originally planned on eating at Drunken Jacks due to TA reviews. However, upon arriving we were drawn to the lively crowd, excellent live music and outdoor patio at Bubba's. Drinks were creative and the food was really tasty.

Loved sitting outside.. Food was ok.. I got the BBQ ribs and the sauce tasted like ketchup to me. Kids got hamburgers and said they were good. Was cool to see the goats on the little island and also the peacock.

We eat here often because the food is very good, prices fair, and they will allow our small dog to sit with us on the outdoor patio. Seafood and burgers are a good buy.

Love Bubbas. Good food, good drinks, good bands. He has his goats on goat island, and goes over by boat to feed them everyday.

Casual outdoor seating and open indoor seating with great views of goat island! Fresh flounder, shrimp, and oysters to enjoy. The triggerfish was phenomenal as well. Enjoyed pulling up on boat but the service is a little slow since they make everything fresh so don't come expecting quick if you are hungry.

We had a big party and took our boat over. We sat outside. Although they were out of a few things, we had a very nice server who had a good sense of humor. I had the fried flounder and it was very fresh, as everyone's food seemed to be. It was really hot out there, but since the whole... More

Don't let the building fool you...I know - the rest rooms are located in the next building and called the Outhouse... because the food here was excellent and the serving sizes were large. The night we were there the band was terrific and had the crowd dancing in the aisle. The grandkids were hopping and even the old folks hit... More

We didn't eat, but enjoyed dinner down the inlet. Bubbas love shack has great bands, great drinks, and a perfect intimate setting to booze and listen to jams. Great story about Bubba himself.
