Don't miss the hush puppies

I love the hush puppies and berry butter--and I don't like hush puppies. They're like a dessert. In fact, made a special trip during my visit to Myrtle Beach just to have them. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed, and the service is great. I preferred sitting in the deck during my last visit but... read more

We have been to Bubba's many times over the years but, this time, we were disappointed as the food quality was not up to their usual standards and the service was slow.

Not my favorite place in the Marsh walk but we still stop in for the experience. The kinda place you stop for some cold ones. I consider this place more of a bar than any other location down there, not much more. Depends on what you are looking for.

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 in our face the... 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
