Bangin' off-season deals!

Visited Bubba's Love Shak with friends this week... we were only stopping in for drinks before going out for dinner elsewhere, but the neat insides and crazy off-season weekday deals made us stay for dinner (and we were glad!).

Have eaten at this wonderful little place on the water numerous times. A huge roaring fire on this cold day. Bubba himself was at the bar welcoming guests! The food was awesome and the bloody Mary's unique. Many seafood dishes. I had a shrimp and fried green tomatoe sandwich ! But they also fix lunch specials that are not seafood.... More

We are locals and bring our friends here for the view and drinks. However, today we had less than pleasant service we ordered one drink each and it took forever. They weren't busy so I'm slightly concerned that it took so long. Also, here we pride ourselves on southern charm/hospitality which we did not receive from our server. Love this... More

This is a real laid back key west type bar and grill on the Harbor Walk in Murrell's Inlet. We were there in the off season so we sat at the inside bar next to a fireplace that took the chill away. In the warm weather you can sit outside on the deck at a picnic table to eat or... More

Arrived early during lunch, so no waiting. Waterfront atmosphere is very casual and fun. Service was awesome! Had the Candied Pecan Salad (with grilled chicken) and ranch dressing. Their dressing is homemade and is AMAZING!!! Will definitely be going back!

We had a wonderful experience dining outside on the Marshwalk. The food was excellent. My husband had a grilled mahi mahi sandwich and I had the whole Maine lobster special.

I love eating at Bubba's love shack. I love drinking and dancing at Bubba's love shack. I always take friends when they visit to this place first because it is the perfect "no worries" beachy bar in town.

We return to Bubba's year after year. The atmosphere is so fun, and frequently with live bands. I had the lobster special this year and it was the best meal of our entire weekend. It was cooked to perfection! We also enjoyed a great Bahama Mama. Everything was great!
