Relaxed atmosphere......

Popped in cause I liked the name:p Glad we did! Hubby had something seafood of course, I had a burger! Food was good & plentiful & our bartender, a young guy, was very personable & attentive! It is an outside 'shak' but beers could've been colder! Pricing was your average! I'd definitely go back!

Loved sitting in the shade, feeling the breeze, and watching everything going on around us on the marsh walk. Loved our adorable server, Claire. Loved the food - the crab and shrimp bisque was delicious (but note that it's a cup; the menu doesn't specify if it's a cup or bowl). The gumbo was great. And, the bread pudding was... More

Four of us visited for lunch and had a decent experience. Drinks were good and reasonably priced but I thought the lunch items were way over-priced - I guess they figure everyone is a tourist and willing to pay whatever. The fried oysters were really mediocre. Everything else was really just OK. Service was excellent although the place was empty... More

A warm welcome and nice setting. Unfortunately a bit windy to sit out on the terrace but I am sure it is lovely in the sun. Great if you just want a good old burger and fries.

My husband and I went to have a relaxing bite to eat around lunch time on the marsh walk and chose this place because it looked colorful and laid back. We were seated on the patio which was nice. We ordered two sweet teas and we weren't terribly hungry so we were going to order an appetizer to share, but... More

Situated right on the MarshWalk, Bubba's was just what the doctor ordered for a casual relaxing lunch. We sat outside on the colorful picnic tables since the weather was picture perfect. The outside eating area is far enough back from the walkway that you don't fell like your on display. The oyster po boy and shrimp po boy were excellent,... More

Our group of 7 sat outside and enjoyed Sunday brunch. The deep fried brownie was delicious, and was made into small bites so it was easy to share. The live music was good, and even my 88 year old grandma enjoyed it. The brunch menu is somewhat limited, so if you are hungry for lunch instead, this was not the... More

Everytime I eat here the service is horrible, the only things that keep me coming back here are the bands on the weekends. The food is below average besides for the bacon wrapped shrimp, which is 4 pieces on a plate for an appetizer which costs $11. You're better off going to eat somewhere else on the marsh walk and...

We have been to Bubba's a few times and always enjoy stopping in fir a drink and a seafood snack. Very friendly staff. Decor is quite fun and includes some rather funny signage.

It:s local to the MAX. Great food and great live bands. Awesome Inlet view. Goat Island is just across from the rocking chairs on the Marshwalk
