Great Place to Have a Drink and a Snack

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.

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...

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

Quick seating by the water. It was late afternoon and a local crowd. The food seemed to be prepared at a 4 star restaurant next door but service was quick and the food was great. My husband had the Seafood combo with oysters, scallops and maui maui, I had the french dip. The home made chips were fresh and very... More

We visited the Marshwalk and stopped at Bubba's Love Shak because we wanted somewhere we could eat outside. The food was average and pricey. I guess this is to be expected considering it's such a tourist location. The service was good but there were only 2 other tables. I wouldn't go back to the Marshwalk and probably not the restaurant... More

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 this time it was too... 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.
