Check your bill!!!!!

I have been going there once a month for girls night out. Food is excellent. Prices for happy hour are great - until the bartender/server decides to charge us for things we did not eat or drink. A Mistake? I don't think so. He rushed us into everything, we could barely hold a conversation he was... read more

I had the Chicken plate - boneless chicken stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella over pasta. Yum Yum. My hubby had the Seafood Platter and he said it was the best seafood he has had since we have been down here this year. They have a buy one get one free Sunday thru Thurs after 4 p.m. thru February.

A really small joint that deserves big credit. Bubba's Love Shak has a very friendly atmosphere that you will want to enjoy! The meals include some great seafood and comfort food. The view of the marshwalk is sure to brush away any stresses from the week. Check out the peacocks and goats living across the marsh on the island!!

This was great! Fresh steamed clam pots, great drinks and Bubba even showed up! this "shak" is right on the water and is a screened in porch with bar. We had oysters on the half shell and drinks while enjoying the view. The signs are hilarious and there is a wax figure of Bubba himself. I wish now I would... More

When you're ready to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the usual pace, stop off at Bubba's and kick back a bit. We started our happy hour Friday here and had a nice time meeting some other visitiors and enjoyed some good libations! Will come back.

We had lunch here last week while on a visit to Murrell's Inlet and we were very pleased! The food was excellent. We all enjoyed the food from the shrimp and grits to the French dip sandwich to the shrimp poor boy, all great. Bubba's Love Shak is right on Marsh Walk and has great views of the marsh plus...

We had lunch here - oyster poor boy and the shrimp poor boy. Nice size sandwich with lots of oysters/shrimp. The special was buy one get one free entree making the deal sweeter. Loved the decor and the fireplace. Lots of memorabilia for sale

We stopped here for a quick lunch and a beer. Great service and menu. They have a few beers on tap as well. Appears its a locals favorite. Has a lot of character. Bubba was there for his lunch as well...Would recommend...

So many people rant and rave about their amazing seafood selection here....however I'm allergic so my review will be on Spinach dip...they serve it warm with freshly made chips. They have a great view of Goat Island with all the goats and peacocks. Outside seating is the best, just pick a picnic table....and squat and relax a bit. Enjoy the... More

At breakfast in Myrtle Beach our waitress told us about Murrells Inlet and Bubba's Love Shak so we decided to explore and it was a short enjoyable drive. The restaurant is on the marshwalk and an eclectic place with the dining and bar area in one space. The food and service were exceptional and they brought a complimentary hushpuppy appetizer...
